HONOLULU, HAWAII – Sacred Hearts Academy is hosting a free Math Power workshop on Saturday, January 28, 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.  The workshop is open to girls, junior-kindergarten (age 4) to grade 4.  The goal of the workshop is to empower girls at an early age for math success and to inspire parents on how best to help their daughters succeed.

Parents attending the workshop will participate in a session “Mathematics in the 21st Century” led by Mary Pat Sjostrom, Chaminade University Professor of Mathematics, while their daughters enjoy hands-on classes designed to make math practical and fun.  Parents will learn how math has changed in today’s classroom and what they can do at home to encourage achievement.


The girls will participate in two age-appropriate sessions.  Some examples of the sessions include:   Apple Graphing using sense of taste and gathering data; Measurement Olympics, the mathletes will exercise their brains and bodies; Fun with Fractions, creating a cute fraction critter, and a Structure Challenge, building a miniature version of a super structure using gumdrops and toothpicks.
