Tri-C Group Takes Fear Out of the Equation on Metro Campus
April 24, 2014
From left, Rita Lander, president; Tallis Munro, secretary; and Darry Burtos, treasurer of the Metro Math Working Group, sort out a math problem on the grounds of Tri-C's Metropolitan Campus. The group hosted "All Math to the People" April 24, an event that promoted the enjoyment and understanding of math.
The group helped students passing by solve math problems using chalk on the ground. Munro said, "Math's a social activity. When students work together to solve problems, they do better. It's peer-to-peer math."
The Metro Math Working Group has 30 members and meets on campus. Donna McNatt is the faculty advisor. What do they do when they get together? Math, of couse.
The group hosted an event March 19 called "Let Us Eat Pi." Those who correctly solved a math problem received a slice of pie.
