YAY MATH™ was founded by Robert Ahdoot, a full-time high school math teacher and has grown to a movement that empowers student success worldwide.
Often times, math education can be the last barrier to achieving personal and life goals. The frustrations out there are many: the everlasting need for qualified teachers, increased pressures on the importance of grades and on college admissions, and a global trend of faltering math abilities, according to Harvard University. All the while, the education community struggles to reidentify itself in an evolving world of technology and online social media.
The basic truth remains – people can succeed if given a fair chance. Messages of hope and positivity resonate and inspire us.YAY MATH believes in this vision. Yay YOU!
The YAY MATH video project is a free service dedicated to meeting the growing need for math success in a POSITIVE, LIVELY, and CONFIDENCE BOOSTING way. YAY MATH stands as the premier online video lesson series filmed in a live classroom, with real student interaction. Since its inception four years ago, and fast approaching 2.5 million YouTube views since, gone are the days of the "I just can't do math" style of thinking. It's time to evolve. It's time to re-invent our entire approach to success.
