Commissioned by Mass2020 and co-published by Boston Centers for Youth and Families, “Time to Enhance Math in After-School” examines the ways Boston after-school programs address mathematics and identifies the potential for after-school programs to support elementary and middle school children’s mathematical learning.

“Time to Enhance Math in After-School” poses and answers the questions:

  • What does it mean to improve mathematical understanding?
  • What pieces of this problem are Boston after-school programs currently addressing?
  • What are the challenges associated with this work?
  • What are important next steps in building upon this work?

In addition to presenting findings, the report specifies ways after-schools can incorporate more and better mathematics into their programs.
