As they say " see you in the fall with a song" and JUMP Math

Dear supporters,

We are grateful for having you with us during these turbulent times all around the globe!

The results from the national assessment at 4th grade have been announced and without surprises for the consequential year there’s been a decline in students’ basic mathematical achievements. The main reasons (remaining unaddressed): the time spent in math classes and in online education the last 2 years, math curriculum and of course the methods of teaching math in school. The system can find solution for the last two but still resists to adopt in systematically due to the contract relationships with several big book editorials monopolizing the primary education.

Despite the challenges, during these last months we carried out two strategic partnerships:

  1. IPE/ JUMP Math Bulgaria took part in the educational campaing led by Khan Academy Bulgaria (Education with backpacks) in support of Ukrainian students in Bulgaria. JUMP Math’s teachers’ guides were accessible and free of charge for all educators and volunteers in various initiatives in service to the children running from the war in Ukraine and their teachers.
  2. As we already shared in the previous edition of our bulletin the biggest project for the next school year will be our partnership with The Trust for Social Achievement. Thanks to the TSA financial support we will teach more than 45 pedagocigal specialists from the 1st and 2nd grade from school all around the country catering primarily students from disadvantaged backgrounds and minority groups. JUMP Math will reach more than 600 students and will help them develop with confidence and joy the basic mathematical and functional skills.

We’ve already gone through the first milestone- invitation for the schools and the process of final selection, accomplished. One common message all school principals shared: “We are aware of the existence of JUMP Math and we’ve always wanted to use it but our small schools don’t have the necessary budget.” Only 30 schools in the project from more than 1000 in the country. It’s been an enormous motivation to go on looking for a systemic solution to the problems.

And, last but not least JUMP Math students score higher than the ones taught with traditional methods and books. The biggest recognition for JUMP's impact is when our partners share autonomously about their students’ successes.

With this we wish you pleasant and warm August. Looking forward to seeing you in the fall, as they say in the Bulgarian refrain “ ”!
