Math Excellence Programs for Youth Villages

Students in youth villages are, as a matter of course, directed to the lowest level of math (3 units) for their matriculation. Ultimately, this limits their chances of being admitted into higher education in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines. Atid Plus believes success in mathematics opens a larger window of opportunities for children and youth and benefits their self-esteem. The program reinforces and enriches mathematics in varying educational ratios  (from individual one-on-one sessions, to groups of 5-6 students), increasing their chances of being directed to extended matriculation examinations in mathematics (4-5 units). The program also inspires other students to excel and encourages the school management to open classes for higher-level math. In 2017, the first year of the program, 37 students tested for extended math matriculation, with a success rate of 90%. In 2019, 110 students tested for extended math matriculation with a success rate of 100%.
