Area elementary students play math bingo at the Trine University Math Club’s annual Math Kids Night March 23.
Math Kids Night 'adds'
up to a good time at Trine
ANGOLA, Ind. – The Trine University Math Club welcomed more than 60 students from area elementary schools to its annual free Math Kids Night March 23 in Hershey Hall on the main campus in Angola.
Students took part in fun-filled math-based educational activities, alongside parents. Children played math bingo and solved puzzles, while others worked on measuring skills while making play-dough. Some played Math Twister and others were seen running across a number line to quickly solve simple counting problems.
“The club members carefully designed various activities for different age groups. They did great job in getting the children involved in the appropriate games and activities,” said math club advisor Haseeb Kazi, Ph.D. “We want to let children see that math is interesting and rewarding, if done with good understanding. A good math foundation should be laid during the early elementary school years; otherwise, in later years, the higher math may seem harder, more intimidating and boring.”
He hopes that by providing events and resources to parents that area students will have a greater understanding of math and that parents will help with the intellectual growth of their children.
“Our organization is seeking community outreach projects and give Trine students an opportunity to be a resource to students, parents and teachers in the community,” Kazi said.
