Working with students for six weeks out of the year is simply not enough. The Math Corps Super Saturday Programs serve as a compliment to the Summer Camp, providing a vehicle to follow through with students during the academic year. The same team team-oriented, mentor driven, student-teaching-student approach is utilized.
The Super Saturdays Program serves approximately 120 middle school students in a ten-week program that takes place during the winter semester. Students participate in both advanced studies and reinforcement of basic Mathematics skills. In addition to participating in grade level content in mathematics, the ninth grade students receive preliminary training designed to prepare them to fill the role of high school Teaching Assistant for the Math Corps Summer Programs. The returning high school students serve as Teaching Assistants to the middle school students and also participate in problem-solving workshops designed to prepare them to maximize their performance on the Mathematics portion of the SAT college placement exam.
I love this program so much, coming in as a 7 and now leaving as a senior is just amazing to me. I’m grateful for all the relationships I have made at this program. I will forever hold a special place for MC in my heart.12th grade student
