Oakland Elementary, Henry Co
"When are we ever going to use this?" An overflow crowd of 250 parents, children, and teachers attended a Math Night at Oakland Elementary on November 14 to answer this question. The participants were challenged with "Where are fractions, decimals, and percents used in everday life?" They also investigated puzzles, and wrote math word problems about life at home. The evening ended with principal Walter Shields announcing door prizes and an ice cream party for the class with the most participants. The event was arranged by Oakland Elementary staff and was facilitated by Dr. Andrea Knapp, Executive Director of the Math for Adults Foundation.
