MEC Math CORPS AT A GLANCE / FOR MEMBERS
Michigan Education Corps Math Corps’ goal is to help every Michigan child become algebra ready by ninth grade. We need your help to make this goal a reality for students in your community.
You don’t need to be a math expert to become a Math Corps Interventionist! Our program provides ongoing training and support throughout the school year to ensure your success. During the first week of your service term, you will learn about the Math Corps program model and how to implement our scripted interventions. Throughout your service term, you will be supported by an internal and master coach and MEC program staff.
As an MEC Math Corps Interventionist, you’ll work with pairs of students in fourth to eighth grade to help them get on track with math and build their confidence in problem solving. To do achieve this goal, MEC Math Corps interventionists provide scripted, evidence-based interventions. These interventions are designed to help students master foundational math skills like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and practice applying these skills to solve problems.
MEC Math Corps members (Interventionists) commit to serving up to 1,200 hours following the school calendar. Full time Interventionists serve in elementary schools, and typically serve at least 35 hours per week, Monday-Friday during the school day. Interventionists serving part time serve in middle schools, and typically serve at least 21 hours per week, Tuesday-Thursday during the school day.
