Area math teachers team up to better scores

Amarillo, TX - With low math scores across the state, hundreds of math educators gathered Thursday to talk about ways to help their students.

It was part of the first ever Region 16 math conference, with more than 300 area math teachers.

Brenda Foster with Region 16 says the conference gave the teachers the opportunity to discuss their methods and help other educators in the area.

"Our goal is to really help students to be better at math, we know that math is going to be very important for them as far as real world application. Not just for scores but want to be able to make sure kids are going to be able to count back change and do the math that they are going to need for their career in the future," said Foster.

The teachers also talked about preparing for changes once new state math standards are put in place in a few years.
