Math Partners Program brings enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers into Metro Schools to give an extra boost to students in elementary and middle school who are struggling with math. This supplemental program gives students an opportunity to strengthen basic math skills and concepts with an especially strong emphasis on solving word problems.
The activities are engaging and hands-on; the small group settings encourage students to work collaboratively with each other, to engage in problem solving and to discover the relevance of math in everyday life.
To strengthen math skills and understanding
To build math confidence
To provide caring, mentoring relationships between students and community volunteers
Interested in becoming a Math Partners volunteer?
Volunteers are needed to help students in grades K-8, improve their skills and understanding of grade level math. Forgotten your algebra? No problem. All of the curriculum is on a pre-algebra level.
Math Partner volunteers receive training and a Math Bag full of materials before being matched with a group of 2-4 students in an elementary or middle school in Davidson County. Volunteers meet once a week with their students for a minimum of 8 weeks – but most volunteers just don’t want to stop!
