In conjunction with School Council, St. James staff hosted a Family Numeracy Evening where students and their parents engaged in a variety of hands-on Math activities. The goal of the Family Math Night was to appreciate the pleasure of mathematics through the power of family interaction. There were a variety of engaging activities to promote mathematical thinking and Math language. The stations included sorting, weighing, storytime, Smart Board lessons, and "3-part problem-solving". Exploring the interactive use of MacBooks and Math are (left to right) the Orser, Owens and Mayer families.
