Math Night

DARLINGTON, S.C. – Brockington Elementary Magnet School hosted its annual “Math Night” recently, giving parents and guardians a chance to visit the school for an exciting evening of learning how their children study mathematics.

“Math night is a chance for students and teachers to show the parents how they can use hands-on manipulatives to work through math skills and solve problems,” Brockington Principal Stephanie Bridges said. “Math night at Brockington provided a relaxed, yet exciting atmosphere to try different strategies and make math fun!”

Math Night activities addressed the skills of place value, problem solving, telling time and multiplication facts, Bridges said. Each student that attended the event received a set of multiplication flash cards, and parents received some take-home versions of activities from Math Night. More than 300 students, parents and guardians attended the event.

“We have had such a wonderful turn out the last two years,” Bridges said. “It has been a great way to provide parents with tools they can use at home to help their students in math.”
