Math Mania at East Chilliwack Elementary
Math Mania is an evening of mathematical demonstrations, puzzles and hands-on activities for elementary school children. It’s been designed by members of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Department of Mathematics & Statistics to show children – and their parents – how much fun you can have playing with mathematical concepts.
Math Mania is held in a school gymnasium and lasts about ninety minutes. About 20 volunteers (students and faculty) from UFV run tables with a wide variety of activities. While most of the activities are designed for children from about seven through ten, there is something for children of all ages. The grown-ups have a lot of fun, too! Our volunteers enjoy it so much that they keep coming back for more.
