Decoda Literacy Calendar
Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month
April 1 - April 30
April marks a time to increase the understanding and appreciation of mathematics and statistics. Why? Both subjects play a significant role in addressing many real-world problems—internet security, sustainability, disease, climate change, the data deluge, and much more.
We encourage colleges and universities—and also high-school departments, institutional public information offices, math clubs, and student groups—and related associations and interest groups to organize and host activities in April for Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month. Past activities have included workshops, competitions, exhibits, festivals, lectures, symposia, department open houses, math art exhibits, and math poetry readings. Some years, elected officials have issued proclamations, frequently in connection with special meetings and events arranged to observe the month.
Share your activities, favorite math books, games, T-shirt designs, posters, news stories, videos, and research using hashtag #MathStatMonth.
