|A program to encourage underrepresented groups (especially girls and minority students) to enter careers that use mathematics. A Family Math course lasts approximately 6 weeks. At every session, approximately 25 people (counting parents and children) come to a supportive agency in their community. A leader teaches the group some enjoyable games that the families can play at home. Usually, there are about 4 "openers" to play with as families arrive, and then three or four family games, taking a total of about 90 minutes. Families go home, play the games, and come back again to learn some more games and activities. Web pages are written in both English and Spanish.|
