First In Math Unveils Social Engagement Award

First In Math Unveils Social Engagement Award

EASTON, PA—First In Math Online has unveiled a new Spirit In Education™ Award to support the effort educators, students and parents are making to create energy and excitement around math on Social Media.

The award will be announced electronically via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram—to an educator, school, parent or student who generates buzz and positive feedback about Math on Social Media.

First In Math creator, Robert Sun (Twitter: @RobertSun), has long espoused the importance of talking about math in a positive way. “When we speak the language of math with vibrancy and passion, we inspire our children to explore the rich opportunities offered by this essential and universal form of communication.”

In many cases, a child’s day-to-day interactions can affect how they perceive math, explains Sun. “Negative influences from outside the classroom can profoundly complicate learning. But, if students are also exposed to positive energy and believe that they can grasp a subject, they will.”

First In Math India CEO, Monca Patel (Twitter: @AboutImpact), agrees. “Let us all do our best to create an environment where mathematics becomes a pursuit to be enjoyed. I am so excited that we will be recognizing those who speak about the positives every day.”
