I joined the Numeric team for two days during the holidays as they ran their annual maths camp for kids from across Cape Town.
Numeric runs 45 after school programs in Cape Town and Johannesburg with 85 active coaches and 2200 participating learners. Our programs are targeted at learners in Grades 6, 7 and 8, and provide an intensive one-year program that covers arithmetic and pre algebra.
Because most South African children have developed gaps in their foundational mathematics, Numeric programs are not curriculum aligned, but focus on building mathematics intensively and rapidly from the ground up. Our programs are staffed by passionate young coaches who themselves are training to become maths teachers. With just one in six applicants securing a coaching position, we are able to ensure a high quality of coach that in turn ensures a high quality learning outcome.
This is the sort of organisation that will have a significant impact for years to come!
