MATH CATCHER: JOY OF DOING MATHEMATICS

Veselin Jungic, Simon Fraser University

Abstract: Come experience the Math Catcher Outreach Program that promotes mathematics by encouraging elementary students to recognize how math is used in everyday life and how it forms the basis for many of our daily and long-term decisions. The storytelling, pictures, models, and hands-on activities encourage young people to enjoy math and help dispel myths that math is boring and solely abstract.
