Big Elm Elementary School hosted its first Math Pizza Night in October. Parents and students were invited to attend what turned out to be the largest math night the school has ever seen!
Students in grades K-5 made their very own pizzas by using multiple math concepts. They used fractions to divide the pizza, measuring cups for their recipe, and they used counting and addition for their pizza toppings. Parents were able to help their children make the pizzas while also learning about the different math skills and strategies their children are learning in school.
Prizes were awarded to multiple students for their estimation abilities and each student left with a zipper pouch full of math resources and games to use at home.
It was undoubtedly a fun-filled night at Big Elm Elementary.
