Math class looking for volunteers to ‘travel around world’
Student in the Teaching Middle/Secondary Mathematics class are looking for volunteers to help with a project to teach middle school students and their parents fun ways to enjoy math and alternate ways to meet the common core standards.
The project is a service for Emporia Middle School. Last year, over 50 ESU students helped with the event. There are only 14 students currently in the course, so they are looking for students to volunteer from 5:30-9 p.m. on March 6 who are interested in workings with kids.
Family Math Night will be held at Emporia Middle School, 2300 Graphic Arts Road. The concept is to “travel around the world” by going through each math station.
To sign up, contact Connie Schrock at 341-5631 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Chase McIver at email@example.com.
