The Millburn Free Public Library will be hosting Rebecca Zook, math mastery and joyful learning expert, to discuss how to "make math magical" for the summer months. Do you want to use the summer to catch up or get ahead - without burning out or going crazy? This presentation is appropriate for parents of students in 4th grade through high school.
While summer is the perfect time to catch up on math or get ahead, students typically lose 2.6 months of grade level learning in math each summer. Many families, even those who enthusiastically embrace summer reading, feel overwhelmed or completely lost when it comes to getting started with doing summer math.
Come learn how you can use the summer so your child can catch up or get ahead with math without having it be a boring, stressful chore, but actually magical, meaningful, fun, and effective, so your child is competent and confident.
You will learn how to:
- create achievable and meaningful summer math goals
- find summer materials that really work for you
- plan, pace and schedule yourself and your child
- fun ways to learn math on the go or on vacation
- access the magic that comes from true math mastery
Everyone will leave with specific tools and strategies to take home and use immediately.
