Math Catcher Outreach Program

Promoting Mathematics and Scholarships

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, and hands-on activities encourage young people to enjoy math and help dispel myths that math is boring and abstract.

Between 2011-2019 the Math Catcher Program has visited more than 80 communities, some of them multiple times, in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Great Britain, USA, and Australia. During these visits approximately  20,000 students, teachers, academics, and community members attended close to 650 Math Catcher workshops, presentations, and community events.
