Foundation Trustees spread the word about free online math resources
March 24, 2020
As the spread of COVID-19 in the United States has resulted in school closings around the country, The Actuarial Foundation has been reaching out to students, parents, and educators, and sharing its free online math education and financial literacy resources. The Foundation understands that the transition to in-home learning can be challenging, and its free resources are more valuable than ever during this difficult time.
Members of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees have also been active in this effort to share free math tools and resources. Margaret Resce Milkint, the Chair-Elect of the Board, has shared the Foundation’s free online learning tools with the Women’s Insurance Networking Group (WING) on LinkedIn as part of their Resource Exchange. Co-founded by Margaret, who is also managing partner of The Jacobson Group, WING believes in gender balance, justice and equity in the workplace, and promotes inclusion throughout the industry. By sharing the Foundation’s resources with the 1,600+ members in the LinkedIn networking group and the national WING Community, Margaret is helping the Foundation to continue to fulfill its mission and do its best to meet the needs of students, teachers, and communities.
Another Foundation Trustee, Brian Donlan, FCAS, MAAA, has also shared the Foundation’s resources. He sent a message to the Actuarial Team at Allstate Insurance Company that linked to the Foundation’s middle school math modules. Brian understands that kids and parents may be looking for online learning materials right now, and that sharing these valuable resources — and the Foundation’s mission — with his network is one way he can help and give back.
We encourage you to do the same — please help us spread the word about our free math education and financial literacy resources! Expect the Unexpected With Math (for grades 6–8) and Building Your Future (for grades 9–12) are free and turn-key digital learning resources that can help ease the transition to home-based learning and improve a student’s experience. The more tools we can provide to teachers, students, and parents, the better!
