Math Workshop by Kathir Meyyappan

Greetings! My name is Kathir Meyyappan.  I am in 8th grade. I have had a fondness for Math for quite a while.  I want to use my interest and passion for supporting the effort of bringing basic education to every child across rural India and help eradicate illiteracy from rural and tribal India by Ekal Vidyalaya organization. After deciding to share my knowledge with younger children, I thought about a 4 week Math Workshop to start spread the intriguing art of problem solving.  

Why I want to do this Math Workshop?
I want to use my interest and passion in Math by conducting a Math workshop and use ALL the money I raise through this Math Workshop[s] and beyond in "Adopting a School for Life time" in rural India and help eradicate illiteracy from rural and tribal India through Ekal Vidyalaya organization. 

What is my Goal?
My goal for this session[s] is getting the participating children ahead in the field of math.  I would like to help all children progress to the point where they are very proud of what they have achieved.  

What is the Schedule?
My plan for this Math workshop is for 4 weeks. 
Tentative Schedule: Classes will occur every Sunday 3:00pm-5:00pm on October 08, 15, 22, 29.  If there are any conflicts with timing for majority of the participant[s], we will work out some makeup class.
