$10,000 IN 5 DAYS? LET'S DO THE MATH!
From March 6-10, 2023, NSF has the ambitious goal of raising $10,000 to support The Calculus Project (TCP)!
Our largest cohort of over 200 NPS African American, Hispanic and low-income students between 8th-12th grade are currently participating in TCP, 95% of whom are enrolled in honors or accelerated math. All of these students are on track to take calculus or introduction to calculus as seniors.
Given these successes, more students are interested in participating each year and there is currently a growing waitlist. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT now more than ever to ensure that every student who is interested has the opportunity to be a part of the TCP program.
The program costs $700 per student. Help us close the gap by clicking the donate button below!
Since the Calculus Project’s launch in 2013, your financial support has played a key role in the significant enrollment growth NPS has seen in high-level mathematics among traditionally underrepresented student groups.
- Students build increased skill and confidence in math allowing them to thrive in advanced math classes.
- Skills gained boost student confidence in their other classes.
- Connections formed with TCP cohort students and teachers build feelings of inclusion and respect.
The Calculus Project in Newton currently serves 200 students in grades 8-12. At a cost of $700 per student for a full year of programming, its success depends on a public-private partnership between the Newton Public Schools, corporate donors, and generous individuals.
The Calculus Project helps students build their math skills and confidence. Students attend a three-week intensive summer “math camp” where they preview the upcoming year’s math curriculum, learn life and study skills, and go on exciting field trips to STEM companies like Google and iRobot. Throughout the school year, they are offered twice-a-week after-school tutoring support.
