Thanks to all who were able to attend this morning’s ES principal’s coffee morning. The parents gave great feedback on the event which focused on problem-solving via logic puzzles, three-act tasks, and number talks.

Here is some feedback from a questionnaire:
What will you take away from this task?
  • math is not just memorizing
  • learn to teach my young kids an interesting way to think of math
  • learning math now is totally different than how I learned it.
  • math is not all about numbers and counting. Its also about patterns.
  • I can learn math from my daughter

 

  • How might you use what you learned today when you see your child tonight?
  • Spend 5 minutes at least with my child to play math games
  • I will practice counting up and down with my child
  • We will make dinner together. My child will use kitchen tools to measure
  • My kids will count money
  • I will make math fun.
  • We will cook together
  • I will let him play in the kitchen
  • I will use numbers with my son everytime and let him learn to solve problems by himself, even when it isn’t mathematics.
  • I will try the chicken and cow problem with my daughter
  • We will play and count with blocks together.
