The Somerville Mathematics Fund was chartered in September 2000 to celebrate and encourage achievement in mathematics in the city of Somerville, Massachusetts. We are a non-profit, tax-exempt organization run completely by volunteers. Our Board Members include volunteers from Somerville and the Greater Boston Area.
"The Somerville Mathematics Fund Has earned special recognition as a partner of the Somerville Public Schools, and is hereby granted this Certificate of Award for continuous effort to promote excellence in Math achievement by funding teacher-initiated projects that promote instructional innovation and family engagement in math education." signed by the School Committee, April 7, 2008 (Somerville Public Schools) (Click here for the ceremony)
