Mathnasium Learning Centers, the math-only education experts for grades 2–12, proudly announces it has renewed its partnership with National PTA, continuing its mission to change lives through math. This is Mathnasium’s third year working with National PTA as a Founding Sponsor of National PTA’s STEM + Families initiative.
“We are thrilled to extend what we started two years ago—providing engaging math experiences to students and families through Math Night events and grants to support them,” said CEO Peter Markovitz, Mathnasium co-founder. “We look forward to working further with National PTA, our valued partner, to bring quality math experiences to kids and parents, inspiring them to further explore STEM subjects and activities. Together, we truly are changing lives through math.”
In the 2017–2018 school year, Mathnasium sponsored 35 National PTA STEM + Families Math Grants of $1,000 each to local PTAs around the country to help schools host Math Night events. Math Nights engage students and parents together in math activities, using hands-on learning experiences and fun games. These experiences inspire students’ interest in math, help them understand and master math concepts, promote STEM literacy, and empower families to support their children’s success in math.
As part of this renewed partnership, Mathnasium and National PTA will continue to support Math Nights in communities nationwide in the 2018–2019 school year.
“The response to Math Night events thus far has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Markovitz. “We’re honored to continue our partnership with the dedicated parent leaders of PTA, to reach out to even more students and families, promote the awareness of STEM education and careers, and pursue our mission to help children understand and master math.”
“We are thrilled to continue our collaboration with Mathnasium,” said Jim Accomando, president of National PTA. “Mathnasium’s support of our efforts to increase access to STEM experiences for all students and engage families in STEM education is essential to student success in STEM and to inspire the next generation of STEM professionals.”
