Family Math Night 2014

The Mathematics Department of the University of Michigan-Flint is hosting a Family Math Night on Thursday, November 6th, in the University Center Michigan Rooms at the University of Michigan – Flint.  The fun begins at 6:00 pm and lasts until 8:00 pm.

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 rather on such things as estimation, patterns, spatial and geometrical perception, and hands-on activities.  No special knowledge or previous experience is necessary.

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