Helping students build math skills and increasing algebra passage rates
United Way MATH
United Way M.A.T.H. (Mastering Algebra Together Houston), a partnership with ConocoPhillips, continues to help students build algebra skills outside of the classroom through M.A.T.H. Camp and M.A.T.H. in a Flash.
This past summer, we partnered with Alief and Houston Independent School Districts as well as nonprofit out-of-school partners to bring United Way M.A.T.H. Camps to more than 500 students, helping them sharpen their skills and stemming the learning loss many students experience while out of school.
In partnership with ConocoPhillips and Houston Public Media, we continued United Way M.A.T.H. in a Flash, a series of animated math problems that air during PBS Kids programs and help children solve problems and learn about multiplication, fractions, graphing, angles, and shapes. M.A.T.H. in a Flash segments have reached an audience of more than 14 million viewers!
