Methods and Strategies: Math and Science Night

by: Joan Sullivan and Mary Hatton

Family Math and Science Nights engage students and parents in active investigations tied to the curriculum in a fun, informal environment. Through this program, families actively explore math and science ideas, discover together through guided inquiry, and apply their discoveries to solve a problem at the end. All activities are hands-on, use readily available and affordable materials, and focus on a theme that links science and math to the real world.
