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. 

Math Catcher in Notices of the American Mathematical Society:

In the September 2022 issue, Notices of American Mathematical Society published Veselin Jungic's article Math Catcher Outreach Program.

The article describes various Program's activities over the last several years and discusses its aims and goals. For an additional information about the background of the Math Catcher Outreach Program, please see Veselin's article  Two-Eyed Seeing: Mathematics and Indigenous Traditions and Cultures, published in Maple Transactions in September 2022.


Between 2011-2023 Math Catcher has visited more than 320 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.
