FSW Hosts Annual “Family Math Night”

Oct 25, 2016

October 25, 2016 – FORT MYERS, FLA. – Learn how fun math can be at “Family Math Night” on Nov. 15 from 5:45-7:30 p.m. at Florida SouthWestern State College’s (FSW) Thomas Edison Campus.

This free, family-oriented event for students in kindergarten to grade 8 features fun math games created by teacher candidates in FSW’s School of Education, demonstrating how mathematics doesn’t only need to be something you use at school. 

“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 Dr. Mary Robertson, Professor of Mathematics Education at FSW.

Dr. Robertson, an expert in the field, has been a mathematics teacher for the past 32 years, having taught at the middle school, high school and college level.

While the event is open to anyone interested in exploring mathematics, students are encouraged to register by sending an e-mail to familymathnight@fsw.edu. For questions about Family Math Night at Florida SouthWestern State College, please contact Dr. Mary Robertson at mary.robertson@fsw.edu.
