Parent Outreach

Mathematics Counts & Science Matters!

Why are Math & Science Important?

Our world is changing. Today, we rely on mathematics and science in ways we could not imagine thirty years ago. Innovations in technology help us communicate across the globe with ease through satellites, the internet, and cell phones. They also help us every day to work better and even pay our bills on-line. Advances in medicine and science improve our health and help us to understand the world around us. From balancing a household budget to preparing your taxes to following a recipe, mathematics and science touch every part of our lives.

Think ahead to what the world will be like when your child is an adult. What skills will your child need to succeed in life and work in our chaning world? A strong background in mathematics and science will prepare your child for college or work after graduation and open doors to higher paying jobs and greater opportunity over a lifetime.
