On November 23rd, Runnymede Parent Council was thrilled to host Trevor Brown, Math Consultant for an fun and interactive evening of Primary math!  Trevor’s enthusiasm for math was palpable as he provided parents with new ways of thinking about old problems.

It was a record turn out, and response from Runnymede parents was overwhelmingly positive.  Here is what some had to say about Trevor’s talk:

“Mr. Brown was a great speaker and I feel a lot more confident in supporting my grade 1 in math. Thank you!!!”

“I think this was IMMENSELY valuable for bringing the gap between TODAY’S math homework versus what we were historically taught with a completely different mindset  (and UNDERSTANDING WHY!!!!)”

Attached, are some online resources recommended by Trevor, along with some math problems for your kids to try at home:
