Join us for a Singapore Math Workshop at Cambridge Science Festival

We love Math, but we love Science, Technology and Engineering just as much! On 25 April 2015, we are collaborating with Cambridge Science Festival, Cambridge Community Center and the Cambridge Winter Farmer’s Market (we know that Summer is here!), – conducting a FREE Singapore Math Kids Workshop in Cambridge.

Cambridge Public School District is the one of the latest town adopting Singapore Math in Massachusetts. In Fall 2014, the Cambridge Elementary Public Schools started piloting Singapore Math (Math in Focus), replacing their existing TERC Investigations Math curriculum. This workshop is part of our outreach program for the Cambridge Community, and for parents and students who would like to find out more about this new math program from Singapore!

This program is free, and open to the public. Pre-registration is required.
