Summer Math Programs in the United States

In this article, we are going to learn about different summer math programs in the United States.

Many students don’t love math—but why not? Because we have failed to make it fun and intriguing by connecting it to things they already like and enjoy, and customizing the delivery so it carried personal significance.

No matter the skill level of the student, it’s important to make it fun and tailored to them as an individual.

Tougher concepts shouldn’t equal less fun!
