If you have not heard of anything special happening at your school to help your children excel at Math, now is the time to contact teachers and principals and ask them to plan fun FAMILY NIGHT activities with displays of engaging student projects.  Parent Math Nights help to explain the new Common Core standards, new teaching materials, and the various ways that Math is personalized to meet individual student needs.
