JUMP Math featured in Quartz

Quartz featured JUMP Math and John Mighton in a piece about math education and the mounting evidence that all children can succeed at the subject. Describing JUMP Math's carefully broken down steps and guided discovery approach, the piece highlights how we can help students (and adults) avoid believing that they are "bad at math". The founder of JUMP Math also discusses the larger concerns in math education that can affect students' experience: "Mighton has identified two major problems in how we teach math. First, we overload kids’ brains, moving too quickly from the concrete to the abstract. That puts too much stress on working memory. Second, we divide classes by ability, or “stream”, creating hierarchies which disable the weakest learners while not benefitting the top ones." Read the piece here.
