Parents

Your child can be good at math.

No matter where your child is starting from in math, JUMP Math can help them master it – and learn to love it. Our approach is based in the science of how children learn, so it helps build their confidence at the same time as their math understanding. With JUMP Math, your child will gain success in math and the belief in themselves that they need to do anything in life.

When parents are highly math-anxious, and help their children with homework, their children learn significantly less math (over a third of a grade level less) than their peers during the school year and have more math anxiety by school-year’s end.

Is JUMP Math right for your family?

JUMP Math’s resources and approach to math instruction are designed for and mainly used by teachers in classrooms. However, our resources are also widely used by homeschoolers and parents to support their children’s math skills at home.

Simplicity is the hallmark of our materials. Why? Scientific studies have shown that flashy, colourful resources actually distract learners from the mathematical structure and concepts being presented. That’s not to say that we don’t make practice engaging and fun for your child–and you!

JUMP Math offers a teaching tool for families that:

  • Builds children’s confidence and ability in math
  • Aligns with math curriculum in all Canadian provinces and territories
  • Works for different learning styles, ensuring all children can move forward in math at grade level
  • Provides teaching and practice resources that effectively help your child understand math concepts
  • Offers well-researched, high quality resources written by math & STEM PhDs
