"I reviewed more in one week than I feel like I have in any other class…. I learned much more than I thought possible, and all in all, this was a great way to spend my time before the semester started.” – Math Jam Participant Spring 2015

“(Math Jam was) so help full. from my pre to my post test I jumped from 36% to 88%. Although what i like most is that it is the week before school starts. I am ready for school. After math jam I am excited for all my classes, not just math. I grow up with a poor education, was always behind in school, failing, not showing up. Never thought I would be here studying a week before school and excited for it.” – Math Jam Participant Fall 2015

Students at similar colleges have improved dramatically...

93.9% of students improve their math knowledge assessment scores through MathJam.
63.6% of those who re-take the placement test placed into a higher level math course with MathJam.
