Research shows that Middle School girls are equally as strong in math as boys, and some studies indicate that at this age girls test stronger in math than boys. So why are there so few girls in advanced math classes in High School? Research also shows that girls start to lose interest (or confidence) in math in Middle School, especially in underserved schools. Girls Learning Advanced Math (GLAM) aims to empower these young girls to develop confidence and a passion for math - and sustain it. GLAM is taught by all-female High School instructors who love math and act as both teachers and mentors. GLAM is taught in small group settings so that these younger girls feel safe and self assured in their learning environment.
