MEC Math corps AT A GLANCE / FOR SCHOOLS
Michigan Education Corps Math Corps’ goal is to help every Michigan child become algebra ready by the end of eighth grade. We make this possible with a dedicated staff and team of interventionists, also known as members, who serve through AmeriCorps. Members provide proven research-based math interventions to help struggling students in grades fourth through eighth grade reach their potential.
About the program
It takes a team to make Michigan Education Corps Math Corps a success. We work with you to provide services to students and need your support along the way. Focusing on fact fluency, number and operation skills, and math identity. MEC Math Corps Interventionists provide 90 minutes of tutoring per week for children struggling with math. The 90 minutes of weekly tutoring is usually done in 3-30 minute sessions or 2-45 minute sessions.
The Michigan Education Corps team provides training to MEC Math Corps Interventionists and Internal Coaches to ensure successful implementation of the MEC Math Corps model.
“The training is fantastic and I have decided to stay and not attempt to commute. It is wonderful to have time to spend with my new “team” and we are learning all together. Thank you also for all you do to make this program successful, I love to see things that get directly to students and have an impact.” –Internal Coach, 2018-19
