JUMPing the Chasm: JUMP Math Reaches Over 220,000 Students Worldwide

This journey update involves 2013 Social EnterPrize recipient JUMP Math, and our chat with Scott McMeekin, CEO of JUMP Math. JUMP Math’s mission is to help improve life outcomes for the students it reaches. To do so, it has developed an approach that builds math achievement, while promoting the social and emotional skills that are critical to academic and life success.  JUMP Math provides teacher and student resources for Kindergarten to grade 8, and supporting teacher professional development.  Although JUMP Math design criteria focus on the needs of students at risk of failure, its resources are used by some of Canada’s most elite private schools, highlighting the fact that all students benefit from excellent pedagogy.  Resources are also available for parents to use with their children.

3rd Canadian Edition of Map the System Selects Finalists & Caps Record Year

On May 4th, 2019, 15 schools gathered in Toronto for the third Canadian edition of Map the System, organized by the Institute for Community Prosperity, in partnership with the McConnell Foundation’s RECODE Initiative, the Trico Charitable Foundation and the Skoll Centre. Congratulations goes out to MRU, SFU, and U of T for advancing to the Global Final hosted at Oxford University! Originally, the plan was to send two teams, but ultimately three teams were deemed worthy by the judges so the three teams get to go to the Oxford finals again!
