The Sid W. Richardson Foundation has awarded a $50,000 grant to the Mathworks program at Texas State.
The funding will provide support for all of the Mathworks programs, with a focus on the Mathworks curriculum project that prepares all students for success in algebra and higher level mathematics. This is the sixth time that the Richardson Foundation has awarded a grant to Mathworks.
“The support from the Richardson Foundation has enabled Mathworks to begin exciting new programs for students and teachers,” said Max Warshauer, director of Mathworks. “‘Richardson Fellows’ attend Texas State and have an opportunity to get an early introduction to teaching. This $50,000 grant will support training teachers in McAllen to teach the Mathworks curriculum both in summer camps and during the school year.”
Said Val Wilkie, executive vice president of the Richardson Foundation, “The Richardson Foundation has been very pleased to support Mathworks, which addresses both teaching and learning math, particularly at the middle school level where the mastery of Algebra I is the gateway to success in higher levels of mathematics.”Email | Print
