High Praise from Families:
- Really enjoyed the games and gave us new ideas for our family to incorporate math.
- We had a great time! I had only intended to try a couple of the workshops but my daughter insisted that we did more.
- I thought it was very well thought out and I love the global participation (presenters and participants).
- We liked learning new games that we can play again at home and share with our other family members. It was nice to have a relaxed atmosphere where others had their videos on and had the freedom to unmute and participate. I could tell that this environment engaged my daughter.
- Learning how to count to 5 in Nsyilxcen (Indigenous language) was super cool!
- It was fun to do problems that were a challenge for all of us, but not too challenging for the youngest of us.
- The hardest part was choosing just which workshop to attend.
- A wonderful event attending as a family doing math on a Saturday morning in our pyjamas.
