Sacred Hearts Academy will again be hosting “Math Power” on Jan. 25 for students and parents to have the opportunity to use hands-on activities showing how math can be used in their everyday lives.

Workshops and activities demonstrating the importance of math and how it is taught in school will be provided for students and parents.

“Math Power is a morning where students who do not go to Sacred Hearts Academy get a chance to try hands-on math activities,” said Director of Student Activities, Toni Normand. “Sacred Hearts Academy sponsors it so parents and girls can find that math can be fun and exciting. Girls who like math at an early age tend to get better in math as they get older.”

The workshop is for girls age 4 through grade four.

Parents have a session with math professor, Dr. Mary Pat Sjostrom, from Chaminade University who will explain about how mathematics is taught in today’s classrooms and how parents can develop math-savvy daughters.

Studies show that many girls begin to be less interested in math beginning at the fourth grade. With the emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in many schools, students who continue to pursue interests in these fields can find success in many professional careers which provide lucrative financial rewards.
