Students and families benefit from real world math at grocery math night

Lakewood Park Elementary students and parents had the opportunity to explore the world of math in real-world situations by attending a family math night at a local grocery store. The students had a taste of reality while walking around the store working out math problems and figuring which food deals were the best economically. After students completed the activity, they received a free homework pass. Parents and guests listened to some holiday music while shopping presented by Angela Moretti’s Lakewood Park Elementary chorus, and parents also had an opportunity to do their grocery shopping and the store manager gave away door prizes. Lakewood Park Elementary thanks the grocer for all their staff does for the school as a business partners.
