May Math Madness (May the 4th)
Wed, May 4 7:35am

Good morning families: 


We are excited to begin May Math Madness (May 3rd-May 31st). 


As part of our goal to support students in working to solve math word problems, our School Leadership Team (SLT) created May Math Madness… an opportunity for families to work together to solve one word problem an evening!  When completed, the solutions will be used to discover a secret message. We hope this is a fun, engaging way to talk about word problems with our students.  We encourage students to draw their thinking and share their ideas with you as well as make connections to the world around them. Participation is optional.


Students can figure out the secret message by solving the problem, taking the solution and matching it up to the letter equivalent. This is also a great way to connect math and literacy.


Attached are all three sets - they were also sent home yesterday. As always please reach out if you have any questions. 


May the 4th be with you!
