Math Talks with Dr. Sundar! (Part I)


ZOOM online sessions

June 4, 2020 - September 10, 2020

Scheduling: You, your friends, family, and neighbor: open to all!

Fee: FREE!

Join Dr. Viji K. Sundar in our talk show on Math: Yes! A talk show on Math it is! Not your everyday talk show! This is an interactive talk show. Are you wondering what is there to talk about Math? Who has heard about Math as a topic of conversation?


Math is a language - many even think of it as a universal language, but it is not culture-free. The ABCs of math are the numerals - one example is the 1, 2, 3s which is not standard as there are Roman and Mayan Numerals to name a few.

The doors to math talks are open to all …. no matter your age … no matter your interest, just join in for the fun!


Hey ... at least check us out!

Hands-on Algebra: Demystifying Abstract Concepts

Oak Valley Community Center

1405 West F Street, Suite A, Oakdale, CA

7/8, 9, 10, 11 & 12

1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Fee: $300, 15 hours of intensive coaching & includes supplies

GRADE LEVEL: 6th to 9th

The goal of the course is to create a "Can do!" feeling about Algebra. Algebra becomes doable when the first exposure to Algebraic Thinking is slow, deliberate and engaging. Children are never deterred by the challenges in learning -on the contrary, they thrive on it- but are disillusioned when it is hard to make out and inexplicable. Algebra is a language and if introduced and taught the way one learns a language, the learning will be self-assured. no better way to do it than using manipulatives that they can see, touch and manipulate. Just like the "Transformers" that can be manipulated to transform from car to person to plane and more, the tools in this Hands-on Algebra can be manipulated to understand the equations, inequalities and more. The sessions will be engaging and the activities will build their competence and confidence in Algebra.


The course will be led by Dr. Viji Sundar, Professor of Mathematics, who is an advocate for equity in the classroom. She firmly believes that all children can have algebra competence.

English Language Fluency Acquisition Program (ELFAP)

Oak Valley Community Center

1405 West F Street, Suite A, Oakdale, CA

2/23 - 4/13

- A large amount of interaction with students

- Small group reading instruction

- Whole group reading instruction

- Use of multiple mediums to present information

Expected Outcomes: 

At least 50% of the participating pupils will improve their scores by one letter grade. It is only natural to ask how is the increase measured and what is the ‘test’ for this measure. The assessment will be a multipronged approach as the fluency in Language - unlike progress in mathematics - has several modalities as the communication is between the Speaker and the Listener.
