The 2017 Math Corps Super Saturday Program will be held on the campus of Case Western Reserve University, 9 AM-12:30PM, Saturdays, January 21-March 11, 2017.

The Math Corps Cleveland is a combined academic and mentoring program that brings middle and high school students from the greater Cleveland area together, with college students, to learn mathematics from each other, as well as to interact with professional mathematicians in a university setting.

The Super Saturday Program is part of the Math Corps that serves as a complement to the summer camp. In addition to participating in grade-level and advanced studies in Mathematics, the students receive preliminary training designed to prepare them to fill the role of high school Teaching Assistant for the Math Corps Summer Programs.

The Super Saturday Program is free of charge for all students. Teaching Assistants participate as volunteers and receive a problem-solving workshop that prepares them to maximize their performance on the Mathematics portion of the ACT college placement exam.

While priority is given to former summer camp participants, Math Corps welcome new members of the family.

To be eligible for the 2017 Math Corps Super Saturday Program, students must be:

1. Currently in the 7th, 8th, or 9th grade (10th – 12th grade for high school Teaching Assistantships)

2. Currently enrolled in a school in the greater Cleveland area

3. Committed to the goal of excelling in mathematics and willing to work hard to achieve that goal

4. Willing and able to exercise behavior appropriate to a university program

Tuition is free for all students thanks to funding from our generous donors.

The Math Corps is based on the dream of creating a self-perpetuating corps of students from middle school through college, who excel academically, hold values that breed success in general, and who, through strong mentoring relationships, pass their knowledge and their values on to younger students, who in turn do the same.

In a world where the dreams of children are so often unfulfilled or not even encouraged, and where the obstacles to success are so daunting, the Math Corps has, from the beginning, been about making a difference and changing lives. At its core, the Math Corps is about a very simple but unwavering belief that all children have a unique and special greatness within them, and that through hard work and a commitment to excellence, as well as with the support of a caring community, this greatness can be realized.
