Math Afternoon for Kids


Contributed by Dani Novak

The math/CS department at Ithaca College is organizing a Math Fun and Creativity afternoon on Wednesday, March 26 from 4:00 till 6:40 pm.

The purpose of the program is to encourage school children from all ages to see math in a beautiful and fresh way and also to help kids do their math homework. We hope that in some cases Ithaca College students and school children will "connect" so that the students will be able to continue working with the child on a periodic basis.

The workshop is geared for all children but a special emphasis is on children who start disliking mathematics, helping them regain self-confidence in their own reasoning abilities. Children of faculty and staff are invited, of course.

To register for the program, please e-mail Dani Novak or write to
