Math Information Night for parents with students in grades 6-8

Math information night for parents with students in grades 6-8

October 19th

6:30 - 7:00pm

As I am sure you are now aware RSU 5 instituted a new math curriculum for students in grades 6-8 this year called Big Ideas. We had several questions at curriculum night about the new math program so wanted to offer an opportunity for families to get more details about the student experience in math and the many features available to support students and parents at home.  We invite you in to meet with our district math strategist Nate Garnett this Thursday, October 19 along with math teachers Jacqueline Hammond (6th grade) and Megan Nealey (7th and 8th grade) to learn about the structure of the lessons, the technology components that support students with homework, and the pathway for math from 8th grade to high school.
