The mission of the Denver Math Fellows program is to ensure that every student has the critical thinking skills and perseverance necessary to perform at or above grade level in math in order to be prepared for college or career. In this work we strive to become a model for districts across the country.
For our program the DPS vision Every Child Succeeds means that students grow academically (at least two years’ growth; every student on grade level) and in terms of character (develop critical thinking and perseverance) in order to be prepared for college and career.
At Bruce Randolph School, there are 10 Math Fellows that teach intervention math classes to 1-4 students at a time. We work with students in grades 6 and 8 to build their foundational skills and support the knowledge that will provide increased access to grade level material. By building students’ critical thinking and problem solving skills, we work to make students successful scholars, thinkers, and leaders.
