This week, Oakton students, staff, and families celebrated our love for math. Students solved math problems that were presented on PTV each morning, played online math games, participated in an estimation contest, and much more. Parents were guest speakers in classrooms to share with students how they use math in their jobs, and families worked together to solve complex word problems at home for prizes.
Thursday night, parents and students played math games in classrooms and learned more about our Everyday Math program. Special guests in attendance were Symmetri-gal, Mrs. Moneybags, Number Cruncher, Addition Magician, and PAWS.
Prizes and math games for our math week were purchased with funds from the PTA “Take Your Family To School Week” Grant sponsored by the National PTA and the AXA Foundation. Thank you to everyone for making this marvelous math week a success! -cg
