State Senator Randy Head represents the lower tier of Marshall County. He realizes the importance of young people in Indiana learning math and science and he also knows that sometimes a student struggles with homework and the parent can’t help.
Well with school back in session and Senator Head wants students and parents to know the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology’s Homework Hotline is again providing free math and science homework help to Indiana students.
Here is what you need to know about the program and how to access help: The homework help line tutors students in grades 6 – 12 from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. (Eastern Time) Sunday through Thursday, September through May. For help call toll free at 1-877-ASK-ROSE, or visit www.AskRose.org
Thanks to a $2.4 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc., the Homework Hotline will continue providing mathematics and science tutoring services to Indiana middle and high school students through June 2017.
With the new grant money, the Homework Hotline will now be able to utilize the latest technology to strengthen its virtual presence and stay current with the technological resources being used to teach math and science concepts in Indiana classrooms.
Head said, “Since its origination in 1991, the program has conducted more than 500,000 tutoring sessions. I encourage Hoosier students to take advantage of this excellent resource this school year.”
