This program, co-sponsored by DAEG and Darien elementary schools, encourages students to play math games at home with parents, siblings and friends daily for two weeks: October 5-18. These games will focus on developing logical thinking, spatial reasoning, critical problem solving, and even math fact skills! DreamBox and Investigations, beyond homework, can also be applied. Here’s how:
- Set aside two dice, a deck of cards and some coins in a “Math Box”.
- Go to http://old.darienps.org/mathmadness/ for grade-appropriate links and games developed by the district.
- Have your child record time and games played each day in the Play Log (check that backpack or download from the Fall “4” Math website), starting this Monday, 10/5.
- Return the Play Log to school on Tuesday 10/13 and Monday 10/19.
For more information, please see the Fall for Math letter from our DAEG co-presidents.
