Celebrating Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month

It’s finally April, which can only mean one thing…

Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month is here!

The effort began in 1986, when President Ronald Reagan proclaimed Mathematics Awareness Week and has since grown to include statistics! The inclusion of statistics is due particularly to the rapid development of the field, data scientists being named the best job in America, and statisticians working across an even more diverse range of fields!

As we celebrate this month, be sure to check back on the blog and stay up to date on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Here are a few resources for teachers and students to kick off the month:

Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month (MASAM) is an initiative from the Joint Policy Board for mathematics, a partnership between the American Mathematic Society, the American Statistical Association, the Mathematical Association of America, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics and the American Statistical Association to increase public understanding of and appreciation for mathematics.
