Hear what past participants have to say about Math Path:
I felt comfortable asking questions, which was a big step to overcome for me. The fact that the class is so united helped me a lot.
I complained about the hour of the Success Skills class at first but after seeing how much I got done; now I believe that the students in the next Math Path should stay longer. That way they will be able to accomplish what I accomplished.
By selecting this program I have improved my mathematical skills at a level that I never knew I could have otherwise.

The teachers, volunteers, and tutors all support the students to reach their goals
It was fabulous to have handson measurement instruments, talks and discussions, about the way math can relate to our daily life in different forms and disciplines such as Biology, Geology, and Astronomy.
