leaders in motivational math
Our Arena is one of the largest initiatives advancing student excellence in math through motivation and skills development. Our formula is simple, yet effective. In order for students to get better in math, they have to practice. To consistently practice, however, requires motivation. Across the country we have insisted on the practice, but have done little to get our kids to see value, fun, and long lasting need for math. From students with little interest and remedial skills to the math masters in your school, all students can be high achievers in math if they are willing to put in the work. Our founder did it in his schools. His accomplishments include 300% improvement in math, from 17th to 1st in district, top math and science school, state math champs, national school of the year, from state-wide failure in New York to model district in 2 years. It's All About the work that we must facilitate with our learners. Once we set this path, it will change our kids forever. Nineteen of Dr. Boykins' elementary students are now Engineers (#19 is Rachel Waller, Chemical Engineer at Proctor and Gamble).
We have developed a series of motivational math events for 1st-8th grade students in public, private, charter, and home school programs. This alternative teaching strategy generates tremendous interest and enthusiasm about math while reinforcing existing mathematics curriculum. Elementary and middle school students are engaged by the combination of learning and friendly competition in a sports-like environment.
Our Math Arena includes several components: MathFest Competitions, Marketplace for student entrepreneurs, staff development, school improvement manuals and math skills development products.
