Fall for Math: October 5th-18th

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.
