Today, Maths Pathway was recognised as being among the companies creating the most positive overall impact on its customers based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the nonprofit B Lab. Honourees are featured on B the Change, the digital Medium publication produced by B Lab, at bthechange.com/bestfortheworld.
Maths Pathway is honoured in the Best For Customers list, which includes businesses that earned a Customer score in the top 10 percent of more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The full assessment measures a company’s impact on its workers, community, customers and environment. To certify as B Corporations, companies like Maths Pathway must complete the full assessment and have their answers verified by B Lab.
The Customer portion of the B Impact Assessment measures the impact a company has on its customers by focusing on whether a company sells products or services that promote public benefit and if those products/services are targeted toward serving underserved populations. The section also measures whether a company’s product or service is designed to solve a social or environmental issue (improving health, preserving environment, creating economic opportunity for individuals or communities, promoting the arts/sciences, or increasing the flow of capital to purpose-driven enterprises). Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent set a gold standard for the high impact that business as a force for good can make on consumers around the world. Maths Pathway made the list thanks to exceptional practices that give teachers the tools, time and professional development to help them achieve the greatest possible impact in their classrooms.
Maths Pathway is a social enterprise that has built an effective framework for scaling excellence in mathematics education. A recently published report showed that students in Maths Pathway partner schools learn mathematics at more than double the rate of students in classrooms that don’t use their model.
Maths Pathway envisions a world where every student’s learning experience is captivating, valuable and enables them to reach their full potential. In pursuit of this goal Maths Pathway is creating – and working with schools to implement – a groundbreaking mathematics Learning and Teaching Model.
