The Problem

As jobs in careers in science, technology, engineering, and math become increasingly important, the U.S. will not be able to compete if it doesn’t address the fact that 93% of Americans report experiencing some level of math anxiety. --Harvard Business Review

The Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival (JRMF) recognizes that the way students and teachers approach math learning has traditionally been fraught with anxiety and negative associations with worksheets, rote memorization, and exercises always focusing on find the "right" answer.
