It’s time to widen our understanding of math and how we teach it.

How does math impact YOU?

This question forms the basis of Math Impacts – a forum dedicated to changing that way we talk about basic math and math education.

Meet Clare

Clare recently graduated with UC Berkeley with a major in mathematics. Four years in the math department left her wondering if there was a better way to teach and excite people about math. What if younger students were exposed to branches of math besides algebra and geometry? What if students and adults alike were exposed to the concepts behind the mathematics that impacts each of us?

During Clare’s senior year, she wrote a column for UC Berkeley’s student newspaper The Daily Cal on the STEM student experience at Berkeley. Her columns and interest in math education helped inspire the creation of Math Impacts.

Join her in embracing your mathematical struggles.
