# Math Strategy Family Resources

Welcome to the Cheshire Public Schools elementary math strategy family resource page.  In both the spring and fall of 2019, Cheshire Public Schools hosted multiple family and parent elementary math nights.  The goal of those evenings was to better help connect parents and families with the math their child is doing in school.

This page houses samples of specific strategies students use at various grade levels.  Additionally, the District Math Presentation from the Spring of 2019 provides information on the research basis for current math instruction.
