Announcement from the It’s All About Math club:
Good afternoon everyone,
I hope that everyone is well, and is enjoying their summer. In the month of August, I have a special volunteer opportunity for you. The Count Me In! Math Program has extended to include a Count Me In! Math Institute Conference hosted by OISE and the Department of Mathematics. It is a conference geared towards new elementary school teacher candidates, to support them in teaching math in primary and intermediate levels, as well as help reduce math anxiety in the classroom. The poster is attached.
The Conference will be held on Wednesday August 22nd, 2018 from 9:30am – 3:30 pm. It will take place at OISE (University of Toronto) located at 252 Bloor St. W. We are looking for ~20 volunteers to help with logistics, food distribution, ushering, assisting workshop leaders, etc. If you are interested in volunteering with this event, please sign up on the following Google Form: https://goo.gl/forms/brmXedNhyePIe3to2.
We will provide you with further details closer to the date. If you know of anyone in high school, or at other universities, who are interested in volunteering with this event, please forward them this information or forward the link.
Thank you all, and have a great rest of the summer.
It’s All About Math
A message from the department:
Looking to make a difference? Want to spread a love of math to
elementary and high school students?
We are looking for people to help us by volunteering for our outreach
and engagement programs right here in the Math Department.
Right now there is a growing population of people who see mathematics as
something unreachable and this starts in the elementary and high school
system. So many people have a fear, or even a hatred, of mathematics
and we are trying to change that.
We are working with local area schools and through the Math Outreach
programs already hosted by the Department to try and change this
attitude but we need your help!
You can volunteer for just one program or for a few hours each month!
The choice is yours. We are looking both for people to volunteer with
programs that take place here on campus but, more importantly, to go out
into the community.
All curriculum and training are provided and it is a great opportunity
to get involved and give back to the community around you. And, if you
volunteer for more than 10 hours, you will receive recognition on your
CCR, and it looks good on a resume!
If you’re interested please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and you can look at our website to see what kind of programs we offer:
We hope you’ll donate just a few hours of your time to help with this
ambitious, and life changing, cause!
