About the Program
The 2021 Biggest Winner Math Challenge
Culturally affirming, engaging, rigorous online learning community for students with advanced ability or interest in mathematics. Projects are designed to build math mastery, explore SEL competencies, encourage self-expression, enhance financial literacy while working in peer groups that are leveraging the latest digital platforms, solving real world life issues.
Join the Campaign and Spread the Excitement
The Biggest Winner Math Challenge was first piloted in 2013 in New Orleans for one school year. In target grades with students that were struggling, math scores increased 22%. In the second year, 2 schools piloted the Biggest Winner Campaign exposing children to self paced, personalized tools for learning math and a community-wide campaign to engage parents and students. Both schools improved math outcomes. The pilot school in its second year moved from a D rated school to a C rated school based solely on math outcomes year over year.
In the Summer of 2020 a summer pilot was launched in Massachusetts to address the “Excellence Gap” for advanced Black and Brown students during the Pandemic. Since then, the Biggest Winner Math Challenge has been improved adding more real-world math projects that teach financial literacy, SEL strategies as well as practical application of math concepts.
This program is sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of elementary and Secondary Education.
