Edison State College and Lee County Math Council present “Family Math Night” from 5:45-7:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 5. The event is free and open to the public and will be held on the Fort Myers Campus of Edison State College in Building U, Room 107. Students in grades 3-10 are encouraged to attend.
“Learning mathematics successfully requires a joint effort between home and school. Research shows students that work cooperatively with their parents have higher academic achievement,” explained Mary Robertson, professor of mathematics education at Edison State College, and the event organizer. “We also want to show them that math is fun!”
Robertson is an expert in the field. She has been a mathematics teacher for the past 28 years, having taught at the middle school, high school and college level.
Attending families will play games created by Edison State College School of Education students.
