Exeter Math News!

A Glimpse into Mathematics Classrooms Across the District

Implementation Weeks 30 and 31

With PSSA testing in full swing, I am sure you are all very busy just "holding down the fort" with changing schedules and test-weary students. Hang in there, it's almost over!

Got some downtime? Check out: www.youcubed.org (a great site for math educators) and http://homeworkhelpdesk.org (a great site for parents)

Please take some time to look at the important items included in this week's news. Keep up the great work!

(The pictures in this week's Exeter Math News were taken in Boston at the NCSM conference while on a "math walk" of the city. The architecture was amazing!)

Summer Materials Prep!!!

Just a reminder to talk with your Math Leadership Team representative to enter your summer materials prep needs into the google form I sent to them. This form is for each grade level to enter materials that can be prepped over the summer by community service volunteers and aides.

For instance, if you know that you need 10 decks of primary number cards copied, cut and laminated for next year, just let your MLT rep know and they can enter that into the google form for you. This will then be prepped and ready to go for you by the beginning of the school year.
