Math Catcher Outreach Program


Math Catcher Outreach Program
Promoting Mathematics and Scholarship

The Math Catcher Outreach program aims to promote mathematics and scholarship in general by encouraging elementary and high school students to recognize how math is used in everyday life and how it forms the basis for many of our daily decisions and life-long choices. The storytelling, pictures, models, problem solving, resources, and hands-on activities encourage young people to enjoy math and help dispel the myth that math is boring and abstract. 

Outreach


Between 2011-2022 Math Catcher has visited more than 85 communities, some of them multiple times, in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Great Britain, USA, Mexico, and Australia.

During these visits more than 30,000 students, teachers, academics, and community members attended more than 800 Math Catcher workshops, presentations, and community events. To view all of the places visited by Math Catcher click the map above.
