Because Actuaries Act, Adam is Ready to Answer
He didn’t used to be, but Adam’s excited now about
eighth grade math. He’s using probabilities to predict
storm damage and graphing how much he recycles.
He feels smart, because he is.
Thanks to you, The Actuarial Foundation has reached more than
2 million children like Adam in their classrooms across the
country. Our award-winning math enhancement programs
strengthen math lessons with real-life, relevant scenarios that
get students excited about applying the math learned.
It is important that actuaries use their resources and talents
to give back to their profession and society. By opening a
child’s mind to new ideas, you can create the kind of excitement
that really inspires a student to learn, understand and achieve.
Students like Adam will know what actuaries do because of
these math programs provided directly to teachers throughout
the U.S. and through the volunteer spirit of actuaries in
mentoring programs in schools near where actuaries work
Eighth grade students like Adam aren’t just falling behind,
they’re falling off the map — ranking 26th out of 29
industrialized nations in math achievement scores. Actuaries
like you are working to change that.
How much of your donation goes to the students?
A $100 donation provides math supplement materials to
385 students in grades six to eight. Do the math! That is
just 26 cents a student, a fraction of the cost of a soft drink.
Because of the generosity of our sponsoring actuarial
organizations, 100% of your donation goes directly to
programs and is 100% tax deductible.
Does Adam know he’s closing the math knowledge gap?
Will he become an actuary someday? Time will tell.
But in the meantime, he’s learning.
