Welcome to JUMP Math Canada
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.

Hear what teachers have to say about how the JUMP Math Teacher Guides make teaching math easy and helps students build understanding and confidence.||We hosted a panel discussion at Manhattan Charter School on April 18, 2016 with New York Times journalist David Bornstein, leading experts, and educators to discuss what makes our “guided discovery” approach so successful.
