Summer Mathematics Academies

The MfA SD/Mara W. Breech Foundation Summer Math Academies serve students directly by engaging them in deep content knowledge through puzzles and intriguing math problems.

Students gain confidence and improved understanding of key mathematical concepts and feel better prepared as they enter school in the fall.

MfA SD Teaching Fellows work with secondary mathematics departments and teachers who benefit from these collaborations. The academies provide the math teachers a safe context to try out innovative teaching strategies, something that is hard to do during the traditional school calendar with the rush to “cover” material and prepare students for standardized tests.

*If your school or district is interested in hosting a Summer Mathematics Academy, please contact the MfA SD office for more information.*
