To continue with the momentum and positivity surrounding Mathematics, complimentary copies of The Xplorers Workbook
was also given to each primary school student during the summer break. This was made possible by the generosity of our corporate sponsors: HSBC, Validus Re and Global Atlantic Re.
The Xplorers Workbook is a forty-page, full color workbook complete with stimulating math games, trivia and fun activities for students.
We also extended the series to launch a new community outreach entitled, MATH+A+THON Beneficiary Program. Each MATH+A+THON participating school selected one candidate to receive a minimum of four free private tutoring sessions with a Planet Math instructor, courtesy of our sponsors. The initiative was later embraced by the BILTIR group, who successfully paired highly qualified mathematically inclined professionals with each of the tutees. Special thanks to Sylvia Oliveira of Wilton Re, Paolo Fiandesio of Somerset Re, and Wanda Roberts of BILTIR for their recruiting efforts and massive support of the program.
“BILTIR is pleased to support Planet Math in its mission to promote a positive mathematics mindset amongst Bermuda’s school children,” stated Sylvia Oliveira, BILTIR Director. “BILTIR’s volunteer tutors, consisting of actuaries and other insurance professionals, all have a particularly strong aptitude and passion for math.
We hope that our enthusiasm will enhance and enrich each Planet Math student’s
experience with our favorite subject. BILTIR looks forward to fostering a long-term relationship with Planet Math, with a common goal of helping to close the opportunity gap for Bermudian students. BILTIR is grateful to Planet Math for the chance to invest in the potential future talent of our industry.”
“We are very pleased to provide the island with these amazing mathematics opportunities,” said Co-Founder, Kevin Warner. “Our awe-inspiring staff and public-spirited volunteers are very keen and eager to participate in such rewarding experiences.
At Planet Math, we create a world where everyone loves and appreciates Mathematics and achieves their full potential. We make a concerted effort to develop high quality innovative educational products, amazing experiences and engaging lessons.”
