The Campaign for Math Proficiency

Welcome to the heart of a three-decade journey dedicated to enhancing math education across the United States! A campaign aimed at igniting a spark of passion in every student and nurturing a new wave of problem solvers, innovators, and leaders. Over the years, our impact has rippled through countless lives, but now, we're ready for something bigger: a united front with the entire actuarial community. Let's lay the groundwork for a future where every student has the tools to thrive. Join us on this transformative adventure, All for Math!

This fall, we’re bringing together the entire actuarial community to help build a future where everyone has the opportunity to succeed.

Research shows that students in the U.S. are not prepared to apply math in real-life situations, which puts them at a disadvantage when they become adults.


After the pandemic, math scores for 8th graders fell in nearly every state. Proficiency in math fell from 34% in 2019 to 26% by the end of 2020.

Actuaries are needed anywhere risk is present.

Actuaries are experts in reducing the impact of undesirable events that occur, and even seeing that risk as an opportunity. Actuaries provide the analytic backbone to financial security programs, from insurance, private companies to the government. Actuaries do their jobs, so our communities can go about without worrying about what the future may hold. That's why we care about supporting the next generation of actuaries.


We advance the future through our math education programs and resources. 

The Foundation's resources give students valuable knowledge and insight to empower them to make more informed decisions. From lesson plans to math competitions to math tutoring, math proficiency is where we give back.

Since 1994, The Actuarial Foundation has unleashed the power of math education by leveraging the talents and resources of actuaries.


Over 850 students participated in the Modeling the Future Challenge during the 2023-2024 season. 


55 students have received scholarships and are actively participating in the STEM Stars Actuarial Scholars Program. 


368 Math Motivators volunteers tutored 1,201 students during the 2023-2024 school year, for a total of over 4,100 hours.


In 2023-2024, 1,506 students from 35 states entered into the Hardest Math Problem Contest.


Together, We're Making Numbers Count

As actuaries, we understand the positive impact math has on the world. This is our moment to join together, and fulfill the promise of our profession by equipping more students with tools and resources to build a better future.
