Free math workshop

Submitted By Joyce Blueford

Not understanding basic math skills in algebra and geometry can prevent even the brightest student from continuing their education. It is frustrating for students not to grasp the underlying logic. Sometimes it just takes a little "gee whiz" activity to make that student understand the logic of math. Dana Odgen Ramoindi, a Fremont resident, has donated funds to the Math Science Nucleus to help students conquer their worst math fears.

A free math workshop will be held at the Fremont Main Library Fukaya Room on Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 7 - 8:30 p.m. Hands-on material will allow 6th - 10th grade parents and students to work together on math skills. The activities will include Graphs and Algebra; Collecting Data and Equations, Measuring angles of geometric solids, Prediction and Guessing; and even a little gambling! Drs. Jarvis Sulcer and Joyce Blueford will provide guidance to help parents know when their child is in trouble.

As part of the grant, there are partial scholarships for tutoring with the Math Science Nucleus' partner, Xcel Educational Services that parents can apply for if cost is a factor in getting their students help.

For more information please contact the Math Science Nucleus at (510)790-6284 or msn@msnucleus.org.
