Parents are invited to bring their lunch and spend 30 minutes on Monday learning how to use the new parent math resource called Math Tutor. The new online math assistance is now available for parents and students.
Floyd County Schools will host the Lunch and Learn activity at the central office building on Riverside Parkway during the lunch hour on Monday. There will be three sessions lasting only 30 minutes. Those will begin at 11:30 a.m., noon and 12:30 p.m.
Math facilitator Jennifer Greer will give a short introduction to the online resource and for the rest of the half hour parents will have the opportunity to go online and work with Math Tutor in the central office computer lab. Math teachers will be available to help parents in the hands-on lab.
Math Tutor includes math practice activities, video tutorials, and printable lessons. The resource is available by clicking on the FCS Math Tutor logo on the homepage of the Floyd County Schools website at www.floydboe.net. Math Tutor has lessons and tutorials broken down by grade level, subject and state standard.
Teachers are also using Math Tutor to support class instruction so children should be able to assist parents in navigating the math resource. A video tutorial to help visitors use the site is also available by clicking on the FCS Math Tutor logo on the school system’s website.
For those not able to attend the session on Monday, another three additional workshops will be offered Jan. 14 at 11:30 a.m., noon and 12:30 p.m.
