Advanced math adds up to future success.


Completing advanced math courses in high school has a greater influence on whether students will graduate from college than any other factor.


The mission of The Calculus Project is to use research-supported strategies to increase the representation and success of Black, Hispanic, Indigenous People of Color and low-income students in advanced mathematics.

The Problem

Black and Hispanic people remain underrepresented in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workforce. This holds them back from completing college and increasing their future earnings.


The Calculus Project works to solve the problem by working to increase the number of low income students of color engaged in advanced math courses.

The Results


Students Helped since 2009
