Did you know ... In the recent Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), American eighth grade students ranked 28th out of 44 countries in math. By the 12th grade, they were near the bottom.*

Did you know ... In a NACME survey conducted by Louis Harris and Associates, more than 50% of American middle school children said that they plan to drop math as soon as the option is presented to them.*

Let's get kids excited about math and science again!
