About The Event

About the book:

This is a guidebook for parents, elders, and other community members that would like to be able to provide their youth with a solid foundation in mathematical understanding by engaging with activities that they naturally do on a regular basis. This is the first installment in the "How To Use All This Math" series and is also infused with Black History and Black Culture. The book provides 20 chapters that each cover a different example of how math concepts often seen as difficult in a school setting can be applied easily on a daily basis.
