Dana Raimondi with her 2 daughters and grandchildren. Bob
Wieckowski, State Senator helped us celebrate her kind contribution to
the children of Fremont.
The Dana Raimondi Math Program
started in 2007 to provide lower achieving students in Fremont, California
access to math programs that will allow students to excel. Dana Raimondi's yearly donation funds
is now used to work
with Fremont Unified School District, California schools to provide a
hands-on method of teaching students in the sixth grade the importance
of algebraic concepts that students now need to take starting in
the 8th grade.
The lessons are on our website for all to use.
This fund also helps us to use some of the materials that were designed with two other
grants: TPL Inc and Seagate Technology.
We thank Mrs. Raimondi for helping the Math
Science Nucleus give a gift of learning, that can help these students understand
and appreciate math for the rest of their lives and why it is a critical tool
for all sciences.
