Tween Primes, the MoMath book club for tweens and teens: Hannah, Divided by Adele Griffin (online)
Sunday, November 7 at 5:30 pm ET (New York)
Uncommonly smart, uncommonly strange, Hannah is determined to become a success. In the one-room schoolhouse at Chadds Ford, Hannah Bennett is a sensation. She is a whiz at math — so adept that she teaches the other students — but in reading, she is a flop. Give her a piece of poetry and she can tell you how many As, how many Es, how many Rs there are in it — but she cannot read a word. Her talent is amazing, but in this small town during the Great Depression, people think that girls will only use math for household budgeting. All at once, everything changes for Hannah when she is invited to study math in the big city of Philadelphia. This illiterate farm girl will undertake the adventure of a lifetime, in hopes of winning a university scholarship. As long as she stays true to herself, there is nothing — not reading, writing, or the city of Philadelphia — that is beyond Hannah’s reach.  Registration coming soon.  Learn more at tweenprimes.momath.org.

MoMath accepts a limited number of high school students for ongoing volunteer roles during summer vacation and/or the academic year.  The Integrators program offers a unique chance to improve interpersonal and communication skills, explore mathematical concepts, and learn valuable job skills.  MoMath Integrators interact with visitors (on the Museum floor or online) and train with professional educators, interpreters, and managers.  Students who participate during summer vacation commit five days per week.  During the school year, this opportunity requires a commitment of approximately one day per week, typically a Saturday or Sunday, from September through June.  Apply now for the 2021-2022 school year.  Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.  Learn more and apply at volunteers.momath.org.

Summations: MoMath’s homeschool program
Homeschool students can experience the excitement of a MoMath field trip!  With the Summations program, homeschoolers can spend the afternoon learning about the math behind MoMath’s engaging interactive exhibits or participating in an exploratory, hands-on classroom experience along with other homeschool families.  Learn more at summations.momath.org.

Events, birthday parties, and more
Looking to host a one-of-a-kind event where your guests can interact with more than 40 engaging exhibits?  Enter a world of mathematical intrigue, but don’t worry: amidst all the activity, there is plenty of space for gala-worthy dinners, over-the-top birthday bashes, laser-cutting parties, and bar/bat mitzvahs.  Who knew math could be this much fun?  Email programservices@momath.org for more information.

School and group visits
MoMath has more than one dozen great programs, from graph coloring to Möbius bands, for school groups visiting the Museum, in person and online.  Bring your students to MoMath — virtually or in person — for a peek into the exciting world of mathematics, and see why students and teachers of all ages love the Museum.  Learn more and register at fieldtrips.momath.org.

Free trips for Title I schools
Thanks to contributions from individuals and organizations including Adams & Company, Con Edison, The Scripps Family Fund for Education and the Arts, Two Sigma, New York City Council Members Mark Levine (7th District) and Carlina Rivera (2nd District), plus several generous MoMath friends, support for Title I schools is now available.  This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.  To apply for a free trip (online or in-person) during the 2021-2022 school year, visit titleone.momath.org.  Interested in sponsoring a field trip?  Email donation@momath.org.
