Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) School of Education presents “Family Math Night” on November 17 from 5:45 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at the FSW campus in Fort Myers.  Students in grades Kindergarten - 10 are encouraged to attend this free family-oriented event centered on fun math games.

The purpose of the event is to show students and parents that Math is fun! Attending families will play games created by Florida SouthWestern State College School of Education Teacher Candidates. This free event is open to anyone interested in attending, but students are encouraged to register at familymathnight@fsw.edu. This event will take place in building U, room 102 on the Fort Myers Campus.

“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 Florida SouthWestern State College, and the event organizer. Robertson is an expert in the field. She has been a Mathematics teacher for the past 30 years, having taught at the middle school, high school, and college level.
