Math is a ‘Blast’ at Grove City College

The college is hosting a three hour program that focuses on fun ways for elementary students to sharpen their math skills.


Grove City College will be offering kids fun and creative ways to learn math at Math Blast, a program for children in kindergarten through eighth grade. The event, hosted by Grove City students in the Mathematics for Secondary Education class, is March 12 at 9 a.m. in the Hall of Arts and Letters.

The program runs for three hours, and each participating child can take two one-hour classes that are taught by students from the college. With lessons such as “M&M Math,” “Graphing with Skittles,” “Snow White Geometry” and “Pirate Map,” Math Blast aims to teach children math in ways that are entertaining and exciting.

“Math Blast never fails to be one of the highlights of our family’s spring. All the GCC staff and students involved make the morning exciting for all ages. Who doesn't love learning about math while counting (and eating) M&M's?” Tracy Jackson, a local mother of four, told Grove City College in a press release.

The program is free, and no pre-registration is required. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. on the day of the event in the atrium of the Hall of Arts and Letters.
