“I LOVE THIS CLASS!!! They answer all my questions when I have them. Each professor is so helpful and informative. They always give you the best advice on how to do the problems. And I’m getting a B in my class because of it! Which is the highest math grade I’ve ever received.” ~ LPC student

### What does the RESEARCH say?

**LPC Math ****Jam students have ~10% higher** success rate in their next math course compared students who did not attend Math
Jam!

**Concurrent Support WORKS.** Statewide data shows that students are more likely to succeed with concurrent support.
