The Bob Moses MathTrail is a mile-long path in The Port neighborhood that begins at Sennott Park and stretches along Elm, Broadway, Windsor, Main, Cherry, Eaton, and Columbia Streets. It features a series of visual and interactive installations that introduce math concepts to connect children to their environment through play. The goal of the Bob Moses MathTrail is to encourage Cambridge residents to find the fun in math and explore math in the world around them.

The MathTrail is named after Robert Moses, a Cambridge-based educator and civil rights activist who considered math literacy a civil right and founded The Algebra Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping students from historically marginalized communities develop math literacy.

The Bob Moses MathTrail was co-designed by The Port community and Math Matters for Equity, a partnership of the Cambridge STEAM Initiative, the Family Policy Council, MathTalk, the Young People’s Project, and Tutoring Plus. Math Matters for Equity emerged from the aspiration and need to build a local culture where math is for everyone and to encourage mathematical literacy for all residents, especially low-income students and Black and Brown children, teens, and families.
