200 turn out for Springfield Math Night

SPRINGFIELD

Springfield students and parents went on a camping adventure Thursday night.

Although the tent was indoors, there were real problems. Math problems, that is.

Fifth-grade math teacher Kim Rutkowski planned Math Night as a way to get students and parents to interact and solving math problems. About 200 people attended, including about 85 percent of the fifth-grade class.

“This is probably the eighth Math Night I’ve done at Springfield. We try to do it once a year. This is a chance to give parents and children a way to work on math activities in a fun and educational way,” Rutkowski said.

Participants spent about 10 minutes at each of the seven stations set up in the Springfield Intermediate School gym.
