Commissioned by Mass2020 and co-published by Boston Centers for Youth and Families, “Time to Enhance Math in After-School” examines the ways Boston after-school programs address mathematics and identifies the potential for after-school programs to support elementary and middle school children’s mathematical learning.
“Time to Enhance Math in After-School” poses and answers the questions:
- What does it mean to improve mathematical understanding?
- What pieces of this problem are Boston after-school programs currently addressing?
- What are the challenges associated with this work?
- What are important next steps in building upon this work?
In addition to presenting findings, the report specifies ways after-schools can incorporate more and better mathematics into their programs.
