12 Months of Math is a project of the NM STEM-H Education Hub, designed to explore and celebrate math’s importance to our community and its presence in our lives.

Math literacy is critical to doing well academically, graduating from college, having strong career opportunities, maximizing lifetime earning potential, and contributing to a strong economy.

However, 91% of NM eighth graders are not proficient in math (New Mexico Voices for Children 2017 Kids Count Data Center, based on 2014-2015 PARCC scores).

12 Months of Math is a call to action to address this urgent issue. A powerhouse of cross-sector partners will launch the project this September 2017, bringing events to families throughout central New Mexico.

12 Months of Math will change the equation through a series of fun, hands-on, community-based events that engage students, teachers, and families in celebrating the importance of math. These activities will be designed to change attitudes about math and link Albuquerque families with math-rich resources.
