This month, the Huntington Learning Center is celebrating Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month, an annual event that aims to increase the understanding and appreciation of mathematics and statistics. These two subjects are important drivers of innovation in the technological world, where new methodologies and systems are always becoming more complex.
Eileen Huntington, CEO & Co-Founder of Huntington Learning Center says that Huntington is proud to join colleges and universities, high school departments, institutional public information offices, math clubs, student groups and other related groups in the celebration. “Many students turn to Huntington for help with math, and we are always quick to share with them how important math is not just in school, but life,” says Huntington. “Math and statistics play a huge part in many current issues—from the data surge brought on by the digital age to climate change, from economic progress to internet security. In April, we take time to elevate the importance of math to the families we serve and remind them of its practical application.”
Huntington adds that while many parents feel ill-equipped to help their children with math homework, there are many simple ways to encourage children to put math and statistics to use in daily life. She offers these ideas:
Now in its 32nd year, Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month began in 1986 when President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation to establish National Mathematics Awareness Week. This annual celebration is a collaborative effort of the American Mathematical Society, the American Statistical Association, the Mathematical Association of America and the Society for Industrial Applied Mathematics.
