Thames Valley Parents Attend Free Math Event


Research indicates that traditional ways of teaching mathematics may cause anxiety and prevent some students from learning.  In response, the Thames Valley Parent Involvement Committee (TVPIC) offered parents a free event featuring math expert Dr. Marian Small.


An accomplished professor, author and International Professional Development Consultant for improved mathematics education, Dr. Small spoke to Thames Valley parents about what math looks like in today’s classrooms and what they can do at home to support their children throughout the learning process. Over 300 parents attended this evening with many more watching from home, as the event was live-streamed from the TVDSB homepage. The evening was a great success!
