University of Massachusetts professors are working on programs to improve the health of western Massachusetts children, and to make them enjoy learning math.
The UMass Center at Springfield previewed some of those long-range goals Thursday. One such program is designed to help students succeed in math by not being fearful of working with numbers. Professor of Brain Sciences Dr. Joon Park told 22News that many kids learn to hate math at a very early age.

Park said he now works with children as young as three years old to put a positive spin on teaching math.
