  • Math Part 2 Assignment: Prepare a family night presentation explaining how mathematics is changing. Give specific examples based on your reading and WebCT discussion as it relates to your math program and this assignment in particular. What are your beliefs about teaching elementary mathematics? Prepare a one-page handout for parents with the key points highlighted. Include 3 - 4 potential questions you might receive from parents/guardians, and write responses to those questions. Include a bibliography of online and offline resources that you used.
