Sekolah Highscope Indonesia Bintaro held a fun way of learning Math & technology applications at home, work and other places through parents sharing session as guest speakers in class and in each grade level. We also gathered parents to learn Math through “Parents Do Math” session wherein they had the chance to experience how the teachers teach Math in the classroom. Parents learned to understand the appropriate ways to help their children learn Math and develop Mathematical sense with our energetic and creative Math teachers as well as nullifying the connotation of learning Math is hard and not fun. At the end of the session, parents realized that HighScope is not weak in Mathematics, instead HighScope teaches Math to target concepts and skills.
“Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding. ~ William Paul Thurston
