Go to the Mat!

There is a famous line in Francis Ford Coppolla's, 1972 Academy Award winning film "The Godfather", that says, "We go the mattresses".  This line was made famous again in Nora Ephron's 1998 romantic comedy, "You've Got Mail".  Essentially, "go to the mattresses" is an expression that means to prepare for battle.

Math For Parents
Lead by Mr. Usher (Head of Mathematics)

This course is designed for parents who feel like they have a difficult time supporting their daughter's learning of mathematics. The course will give participants hands-on experience with the type of mathematics their daughters are doing. The course objectives include 1) developing the confidence of those who might consider themselves "not a math person"; 2) helping parents better understand the aims of a mathematics education; and 3) providing practical ideas and strategies parents can use to support their daughters learning of mathematics at home. (Recommended for parents of children entering grades 5 to 9)

(Offered in Week 2)
