Parents are invited to bring their lunch and spend thirty minutes on Monday to learning how to use the new parent math resource called Math Tutor now. The new online math assistance is now available for parents and students. Floyd County Schools will host a Lunch and Learn activity at the central office building on Riverside Parkway during the lunch hour on Monday, January 14. There will be three sessions lasting only thirty minutes with sessions beginning at 11:30 a.m., 12:00 noon and 12:30 p.m. There will be a short fifteen minute introduction to the online resource and the rest of the half hour parents will have the opportunity to go online and work with Math Tutor in the central office computer lab. Math teachers will be on-hand to help parents in the hands-on lab. 

"We hope that parents will take a few minutes out of their day to find out how to best use this new resource," stated Jennifer Greer, host for the Lunch and Learn and the math facilitator for Floyd County Schools. "Parents have told us that they need resources to help their child with math and we feel that Math Tutor is an excellent way to address this need." FCS Math Tutor is now available to help parents work with their child at home. The resource can also be used by students to help them to be more successful in math. Math teachers are using the resource in their class to help familiarize students with what the online resource can offer them to master math skills outside of class. Teachers and schools are also promoting the resource in teacher newsletters, school newsletters and other communication with parents to make everyone aware of the math assistance that is now available. 

Math Tutor is an online resource that includes math practice activities, video tutorials, and printable lessons. The resource is available by clicking on the FCS Math Tutor logo on the homepage of the Floyd County Schools website. Math Tutor has lessons and tutorials broken down by grade level, subject and state standard. Teachers are also using Math Tutor to support class instruction so children should be able to assist parents in navigating the math resource. A video tutorial to help visitors use the site is also available by clicking on the FCS Math Tutor logo on the school system's website.

You are invited to learn more about FCS Math Tutor at the Lunch and Learn on Monday.
