The math assistance program was also filmed at C.L. Smith Elementary School as a team of credentialed California math tutors assisted callers with math questions.
The program also features math- and science-based careers and “In the Classroom” segments with local students working out math problems with the hosts. At Laguna Middle School, about eight students participated. One by one, host Mike Cushine guided each student through a math problem.
Now in its 14th season, the program is produced out of the Kern County Office of Education, according to a news release from the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education, which started licensing the program in the 2012-13 school year. The program runs from Sept. 15 through March 16.
A live broadcast airs in San Luis Obispo County on Charter Communications Channel 19 from 4 to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and streams online at http://dothemathonline.net/.
