Ithaca College: Williams Hall, 3rd Floor

Math Day Banner

The Ithaca College Mathematics Department welcomes students in grades PreK–5 and their entire families to explore mathematics together through games, puzzles, building blocks, reading, music, art, and more!

Many students—and parents too!—associate “math” with "numbers." Community Math Day puts the focus on exploration, creativity, reasoning, and problem solving. By working together with their caregivers in a family learning environment, children can discover for themselves where math is found in music, art, science, nature, puzzles, and more. Math department faculty, students, and alumni, along with friends from Computer Science, Physics, and Math Engaged will be there to help you explore, play, and learn.
