CHS teachers participate in Math Festival

“Everyone is a math-er”, Math Curriculum Coach Karen McPherson declared to CHS teachers at yesterday’s launch of the Julia Robinson Math Festival.  Coach McPherson challenged CHS staff to rethink their approach to math both as teachers and as math users through playing math games, solving puzzles, and learning strategies for cultivating positive math mindsets. CHS staff rotated among self-selected math learning stations, playing and solving at their own pace. Plans are in the works for Ms. McPherson and the CHS Math Team - Ms. Kahwash, Mr. McKnight, and Ms. Simmons - to host more Math Festivals later this year for students, families, and community members.
