From the creators of MATH 180 , Scholastic's revolutionary intervention program designed to get middle school students Common Core-ready by rebuilding the foundations of mathematics, Math@Work aims to show students in grades 5 and up why math is important beyond the classroom and essential for 21 st Century careers.  

"All kids have career ambitions. Our goal is to share how the math skills they learn in school today are connected to the lives they envision for themselves and are necessary for success in their future careers," said Margery Mayer, President of Scholastic Education.
