Proven and Proactive Math and Financial Literacy Programs

The Actuarial Foundation provides a wide range of free programs and resources that engage students with real-world situations to improve their math skills and their confidence.

When students use our programs, we move them away from the routine memorization of complex formulas to using numbers as tools to ask creative questions, see the world’s patterns and ultimately, think logically to solve problems.

Fostering Math Skills and a Love of Math

“I was fortunate to grow up in a school district that had outstanding support for math learning and problem-solving from elementary school through high school. This support, coupled with my interest in math, cemented an aptitude and love for math that allowed me to become an insurance company chief executive. The Actuarial Foundation serves to foster math skills and the love of math for today’s middle school and high school students."
