Members of Ithaca College Math Club and Pi Mu Epsilon held a math night at Belle Sherman Elementary for students grades K - 5 on November 28th. They played a variety of math related games and puzzels, like marshmallow geometry and fruit snack graphing with the children to help them understand math can be fun! The two organizations also participated at the math day at Ithaca College on December 1st and ran some stations with math games, like tangrams and color-by-number. Both events were successful and the organizations plan on helping out at other math events in the spring semester.

The Math Day is a community activity organized by the IC Math Department and Family Math. Families with children in all grades of elementary school come to campus to participate in different stations organized by members of Family Math, faculty at the Math Department, and students in the Childhood Education Program. Games, puzzles, computer programs, applets, and hands-on activities are used to engage parents and children in discovering new ways to think about math. The Math Day was on November 15th and around 120 people participated in the event.
