A Winning Equation
Achievement in early math is a great predictor of future academic and economic success. In fact, 90% of sixth graders who fail math will not graduate from high school.
Right now, more than 26,000 Minnesota eighth graders are failing state math exams. By applying a proven model for student success, Minnesota Math Corps is changing outcomes for fourth through eighth graders who are struggling in math. Tutors are trained to provide individualized, research-based instruction to help students gain foundational math skills.
