  • Asheville Initiative for Mathematics | Department of Mathematics
    a strategy of supporting student s math skills and preparing all students for upper level math courses in high school The ability to achieve such a goal is not far fetched We need to bring resources to bear on math literacy However teachers and school systems cannot address this issue alone We must enlarge the conversation of improving math literacy to include teachers students parents academic administrators business leaders and community leaders to even have a chance at success The role of UNC Asheville as a public institution is to bring students teachers and research to the table By acting as a facilitator UNC Asheville is well positioned to impact math literacy locally and to act as a model for other communities to address this critical national issue Program Goals History Goal of Public Outreach The goal of public outreach is to reframe how we think of math Math literacy includes the skills of arithmetic mastery of basic statistical concepts problem solving skills critical thinking skills and the ability to communicate effectively in quantitative terms These are essential skills in our current work force environment and will continue to grow in importance for personal economic success These skills also allow us to adapt to a constantly shifting work arena Guiding Assumptions Mathematics is the study of relations between objects Mathematics is fun and should be celebrated Everyone can learn and enjoy mathematics Mathematics connects to everyone s everyday experience There is no such dichotomy as numbers people and words people Math literacy improves learning outcomes in math and science Math literacy helps develop executive function which in turn positively impacts every facet of a person s life Mathematics can positively transform both the individual and the community by opening doors to higher education critical thinking executive function financial planning and self esteem History In Fall 2006 the UNC Asheville Math Department decided to extend our community outreach But we wanted to avoid a top down approach telling the community what they need Instead we listened to community partners and identified needs and resources We formed an informal group of allies Our conversations led to multiple activities including public outreach professional development and tutor training We are currently building a sustainable balance of outreach student research and tutoring resources Connection to UNC Asheville s Mission Statement The mission of UNC Asheville states the university aims to develop students of broad perspective who think critically and creatively communicate effectively and participate actively in their communities The promotion of numeracy at all levels in the community improves critical thinking as well as communication of ideas with mathematical content As a public university UNC Asheville serves the region and state in ways that complement its educational mission It encourages students faculty and staff to interact with and serve the community and it shares cultural and educational resources with citizens at all stages of life and learning The Asheville Institute of Mathematics serves as conduit for faculty students and ideas to reach out to the
