Another successful Family Math Night took place in the upper room at Guam Adventist Academy las t Saturday, September 26, 2015. More than twenty five families took part in the annual event. Students, with their parents, were engaged in solving math problems, logic puzzles, and other games involving arithmetic.
The evening was opened with a sundown devotional to close the Sabbath. Elementary students led out in the lively song service and all the parents happily participated. Mr. Mario Ricketts, the GAA chaplain, shared a sermonette about how God multiplies His blessings as we increase our faith and lift up our prayers to Him. Mr. Kelvin Dela Paz welcomed everyone, thanking them for supporting their children's learning in Math.
The games started off with the estimation game — estimate the contents of two bags of pistachio in a beautifully crafted basket. Every grade level offered a variety of games that reinforced what the students are learning in class. The 5th and 6th graders enjoyed math bingo the most.
This event offered an environment that is very conducive for math learning. Students were actively involved in various math games and activities that they did not notice the time passing by. At around 8:15 in the evening, we had to call it a night. Middle school math teacher Roger Krum offered a closing remark and the closing prayer.
Everyone was thankful for a pleasant educational evening. We look forward to the next math night and we hope that you will join us again!
