Newton North alum Kyle Ray-Canada lost confidence in his math ability while he was in middle school. Now a college freshman, he’s the go-to guy for classmates needing math help. His mom credits his participation in The Calculus Project.
For the fifth consecutive year, a generous Newton resident will once again match up to $25,000 in contributions made to The Calculus Project during March.
Research shows a strong correlation between taking high-level math in high school and completing college. Prior to The Calculus Project, few Black, Hispanic, and low-income students were represented in advanced math classes in Newton’s middle schools and high schools.
Your contribution to the March match challenge will help close the achievement gap by giving students a path to success in high-level math — and double your impact!
