Math program returns to Children’s Museum

TERRE HAUTE — The Terre Haute Children’s Museum and the Indiana State University Center for Mathematics Education are preparing for another fun-filled session of the popular “Go Figure” math program, and thanks to generous support from Museum donors, a limited number of scholarships are available, based on financial need.

“Go Figure” is a five-week math encouragement and enrichment program for third, fourth and fifth grade students, and this fall, “Go Figure” participants will see how math relates to the elections during our “Decision 2012” program. Themes for the fall sessions include Election History and the American Democratic Process, The Race to the White House, The Candidates, Campaign, Issues, Media and Your Decision, Election Day — Get out and Vote, and The Thrill of Victory, the Agony of Defeat.

Students with varying ranges of mathematics experience and achievement are encouraged to participate in the program, which strives to create a sense of excitement about being math-savvy in everyday life. The program receives support from the Wabash Valley Community Foundation.

The “Go Figure” program, which will be facilitated by Indiana State University student docents, will take place every Saturday, from 1-2:30 p.m., beginning Oct. 13 and ending Nov. 10 at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum, 727 Wabash Ave.

The cost to attend all five sessions is $40 for members of the Terre Haute Children’s Museum and $50 for non-members. To download the registration form, visit
