It's time to change our conversations, attitudes, and anxiety about MATH!
We recently launched our "I Love My Kids with Math Campaign" workshops during the East Detroit Schools District Wide Title I Dinner in March 2013.
We are on a mission to connect with 12,000 parents and adults internationally over the next 12 months to help them L.O.V.E. their kids with math.
Kids look up to adults! Let's give them something to talk about by transferring positive energy, strategies, and the support they need to succeed.

conference calls, and t-shirt sales will help spread the message that
each of us should invest in and help cultivate a more mathematically
literate community--sooner than later.
The "I Love My Kids with Math" workshops are designed to cause a significant shift in math anxiety, attitudes, and achievement for the adults and kids in their lives. This program is an extension of our Parent POWER Hour sessions. During the 1.5-2 hour sessions, participants will be engaged in seeing, saying, and doing math through simple actions that support kids during non-school hours while learning about L.O.V.E. to help the kids in their lives reach new heights with math!
We have our "I Love My Kids with Math" shirts available for purchase and will share a few more informational pieces as takeaways. Short and sweet...yet powerful.
We are meeting in schools, museums, community centers, and faith-based venues. How do YOU L.O.V.E. your kids with Math?Show your support today!
