Math Camp Kickoff
Our first day was started with our career speaker, from the Iowan legislature.  Ms. Angel Banks-Adams, a fiscal legislative analyst, came in to discuss the vital role that mathematics plays in lawmaking.  The girls completed an exercise on how to create a state budget with a high-level perspective and its' potential impact on social issues.

The group then did timed worksheets on addition and multiplication to begin tracking their progress throughout the month.   After a quick break outside, the girls started on how to budget for college, and through this creative budgeting process, they practiced foundational math skills.  The day was wrapped up with a presentation on groundbreaking women of color who had earned their Ph.D.'s in Mathematics.

We’re all excited for next week!  Our career speaker for week 2 is Jenelle Meyer, Ph.D. in Genetics from Corteva AgriSciences!

Stay tuned for week 2!
