JUMP Math
Participates in 2 items
Dr. John Mighton is a playwright turned mathematician and author who founded JUMP Math as a charity in 2001. His work in fostering numeracy and in building children's self-confidence through success in math has been widely recognized. John developed JUMP Math to address both the tragedy of low expectations for students and that of math anxiety in teachers. John’s success in helping students achieve levels of success that teachers and parents had thought impossible fueled his belief that everyone has great untapped potential. What makes JUMP Math unique is the premise that anyone can learn math and anyone can teach it. As a mathematician and a playwright, John believes that there are more connections between the arts and sciences than people generally see, as mathematicians are often led by a sense of beauty or elegance in their work.
