E[M] takes a holistic approach that empowers rising 3rd through 10th grade students from underserved populations to solve problems, build tech skills, and gain math proficiency to increase their chances of securing high-paying 21st-century jobs.
Throughout the summer, students will experience a specially developed curriculum to prepare them for their next math class.
The E[M] curriculum has been proven to be two times more effective than similar intervention programs. The program has more than doubled the level of algebra readiness among participating students.
E[M] classes typically start mid-June and run through mid-July. Each district selects its own program dates, times, and location. Each class typically runs 3-5 hours a day.
