# About M-PACT

M-PACT (Math Partnership with Communities and Teachers) is a program that brings teams of members of the UC Davis Department of Mathematics — faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates — to run a hands-on, thought-provoking math activity every week at the Smythe Academy, a junior high school in the Twin Rivers School District in Sacramento. Its goal is to make extracurricular math accessible to school students from underprivileged backgrounds, as well as to diversify the mathematical community.
