About Jump Math:
Founded in 2002, JUMP Math works to encourage an understanding and a love of math in students and teachers. It aims to dispel the myth that some people just are not good at math. JUMP Math recognizes that there is a strong causal link between a child’s academic success and his or her future contribution to society. It seeks to increase children’s chances of success to reduce socio-economic inequalities, instill a sense of belonging, and give opportunity to voiceless children. JUMP Math uses the latest research in cognitive science and educational psychology to develop its program.
JUMP Math is primarily intended to be used in classrooms from kindergarten to grade eight. JUMP Math produces teacher resources (detailed lesson plans, unit test with answer keys, curriculum correlations, etc.), student practice books, problem solving lessons, confidence building units, and digital lesson slides. It also holds Professional Development events across Canada and the US to engage K-8 educators looking to enhance their credentials. JUMP Math can also be used as a support for after-school tutoring by schools, community organizations, and parents at home.
Since 2002, JUMP Math has grown rapidly. It is now used by over 15,000 students in the US, more than 150,000 in Canada, and approximately 12,000 in Spain. JUMP Math has trained 4,200 teachers and awarded 5,000 students with resources.
Results and Impact:
In F2018, a total of 240 students in grades four to seven completed the math subtest of the WRAT-4 in both the fall and spring of the school year. JUMP Math reports that math achievement grew at 2.8 times the rate of the WRAT-4 standard sample. The number of students scoring ‘average’ or above increased from 50% in the fall to 69% in the spring. The number of students scoring ‘above average’ or higher increased from 4% in the fall to 10% in the spring.
While Ci highlights these key results, they may not be a complete representation of JUMP Math’s results and impact.
JUMP Math is a medium-sized charity, with total donations of $1.6m in F2018. Administrative costs are 7% of revenues (excluding investment income) and fundraising costs are 27% of donations. Service from sales of lessons and books were $3.2m (66% of total revenue) in F2018. For every dollar donated, 66 cents go to the cause. This is within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. Funding reserves of $2m can cover 4.5 months of annual program costs.
This charity report is an update that has been sent to JUMP Math for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
