CMS Families:

This is undoubtedly my favorite time of year – March Madness. There are lots of learning opportunities surrounding Bracketology. It could be a great time to be a math teacher: predictions, stats, percentages, probability and fun. If you like the game of basketball, it’s always a time of year to have a little fun. We have a lot going on at CMS this week, so let’s get right into it.

Wishing everyone a great week.
