Welcome to JUMP Math's Canadian Program website

JUMP Math is a numeracy program. JUMP Math is dedicated to enhancing the potential in children by encouraging an understanding and a love of math in students and educators. JUMP Math replaces the self-fulfilling myth that some people are born with mathematical ability while others do not have the ability to succeed with assumptions that all children can be led to think mathematically.

We offer educators, tutors and parents complete and balanced materials as well as training to help them reach all students.
