Richmond parents who’d like their kids to hone their algebra skills can take advantage of a free six-week program this summer.

For a second straight year, the Easter Hill United Methodist Church received a grant from Cal State to deliver the free program, which is offered to students from sixth through eighth grades and to ninth graders who would benefit from more instruction.

The courses, which are taught by a Phd/certified math instructor, run from July 16 through July 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The program is designed to help students “close skill gaps and increase their readiness to perform critical math exercises when they return to school in the fall,” organizers said.

Included in the program:

  • Interactive skill building for algebra / math
  • Snacks and lunch
  • Field trips and mentor/ guest speakers on Fridays

To sign up, parents can attend one of two sessions at the church, located at 3911 Cutting Blvd. The sessions are on Monday and Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
