Fairfield University hosts the Mighty Math Kids Club event "Connect-the-Dots"
On December 10, Fairfield University assistant professor Dr. Jennifer Goldberg of the Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions invited a group of forty-two students from the Mighty Math Kids Club to "Explore Math through the Arts." The students, from four schools - Six-to-Six Interdistrict (Bridgeport) Thurgood Marshall Middle (Bridgeport), Amistad Academy (New Haven) and St. Martin de Porres Academy (New Haven), participated in hands-on-activites that provides students a way to use their senses to experience math through the arts, with Zumba, poetry, yoga and design. News 12 Connecticut filmed the event.

Students learn math adds up in unique ways
Trying hard not to step on each other's feet, Arin Garland and Eleanor Rowe, both 9 and fourth-graders at the Six to Six Magnet School in Bridgeport, learned to mambo at Fairfield University Monday... Funded by a $25,000 grant from General Electric and arranged by Jennifer Goldberg, an assistant professor at Fairfield University, the idea was to help students see some novel and alternative ways math can be used.
