In response to COVID-mandated virtual schooling, the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics (OSSM) will host a series of free one-day math workshops for middle school students throughout the state of Oklahoma. Designed for students entering grades seven through nine in fall of 2021, the goal is to help them catch up on math concepts that have proven difficult to teach in a virtual classroom.
“Remote learning is a difficult medium in which to teach complex math concepts,” said Frank Wang, Ph.D., president of OSSM and teacher of the one-day workshops. “Through the free workshops, we hope to help middle school students prepare for the upcoming school year and learn math through a fun, interactive approach. I like to wow the students with dazzling displays of mathemagics and have them exclaim and ask ‘Whoa, Dr. Wang. How did you do that?’”
OSSM will host five one-day workshops throughout Oklahoma. Each session will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The schedule is as follows:
Enid, June 10, Autry Technology Center
Altus, June 15, Western Oklahoma State College
Durant, June 17, Kiamichi Technology Center
Tahlequah, June 22, Indian Capital Technology Center
Woodward, June 29, High Plains Technology Center
