The Skinny

The emphasis is not on numerical computation, but on such things as estimation, patterns, spatial and geometrical perception, and other hands-on activities.

The University of Michigan-Flint Mathematics Department will sponsor a Family Math Night on Thursday, November 7th, in the Michigan Rooms of the Harding Mott University Center. The fun begins at 6:30 p.m. and lasts until 8:30 p.m.

Family Math Night is an opportunity for children and their parents to have fun together with math. Various activities, such as puzzles and games, will be scattered around the room. Each activity takes a few minutes and children will have a chance to try quite a few different ones. The emphasis is not on numerical computation, but on such things as estimation, patterns, spatial and geometrical perception, and other hands-on activities. No special knowledge or previous experience is necessary.

The event is open to the public. Treat bags, math resources, door prizes, pizza, and refreshments will provided at no charge. For refreshment purposes, advance registration is encouraged, and can be done by leaving a message at 810-762-3244 indicating the number of people planning to attend.
