Family Engagement Pilot is Making Math Fun


The pilot program begun in the fall at Helen Turner Preschool in Hayward has brought math confidence and engagement to low-income families in Hayward, with monthly series of workshops led by the Institute thanks to a $1 million endowment from the Malavalli Family Foundation. The take-home booklet of family math activities that the Institute developed for this pilot has been distributed, along with training for educators, to Berkeley afterschool programs and staff at the Fremont Public Library. At its East Bay Innovation Awards on March 30 the East Bay Economic Development Alliance, a participant in the East Bay STEM Network, will provide a copy of the colorful, engaging math activities booklet to each of the several hundred attendees.
