A Calculus project event at Boston University, Massachusetts

Adding up to a real change

Good science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) skills are vital to future economic prosperity. But inequality can prevent even the most able student realising their full potential. It doesn’t have to be so. With the right support, everyone can succeed.

The Calculus Project developed by our specialist educational consultancy Cambridge Education has been changing the way high schools in Massachusetts, New York and Florida support African American, Latino and low-income students to achieve success in advanced maths.

Calculus is a branch of maths that cuts something into small pieces to find how it changes, and that is the essence of our scheme.

It is a series of co-ordinated, research supported components implemented over a five-year period, from grade eight to 12. Students on the Calculus programme perform better in state assessments and are consequently more likely to enrol in higher-level maths courses and take on leadership and peer-tutoring roles. Many are majoring in STEM disciplines in some of the most competitive colleges and universities in the country.
