Distributing Math Activities to underserved Communities.


Creative distribution became a goal in 2020 and we continue to seek out partnerships that put opportunities to develop mathematical fluency in reach of learners of all types and ages.

In partnership with New Life Alliance, a provider of low income housing across Texas, MathHappens Foundation assembled 14 Suites of math activities that we distributed for use in kids clubhouses for after school academic support in December of 2022.  The boxes contained the same models and quality materials we provide in our math rooms.  4 boxes of math tiles and activities also went to senior housing complexes administered by New Life Alliance.

What's in the box?

  • A variety of high quality mathematical learning tools that are durable, approachable and address core skills and concepts without worksheets or screens
"Here are seven ideas for graph paper math... let me know if you want more"

MathHappens Foundation also distributed graph paper composition books and other supplies to families for free through family support organizations like Austin Voices. We are just getting started in Summer 2020 and plan to go forward into fall to encourage kids and families to explore the possibilities and provide a non computer based option for learning.  Mathematics Educators agree, graph paper, pens or colored pencils, scissors and maybe some tape are all you need to do a variety of cool math activities. And you can also make up your own activities, designs and games!

  • Engage with a classic problem
  • Build a game or maze
  • Create 3d polyhedra
  • Find more creative options on the web

What's in the kit?

  • Composition book of graph paper.
  • Colored pencils/pens/crayons
  • Scissors
  • Optional Glue, Tape
  • Cardstock activities: Options for Tangrams, Tessellation and Dissections.
  • Booklet of Graph paper Activities
