TLDR

When it counted, math teachers Luke and Lindsey lowered the price of a resources that cost them a lot to make.

Math teachers, Luke Wilcox and Lindsey Gallas, created the resources at Stats Medic for their own classrooms. They designed their online courses around the philosophy that discussion, experience, and creating curiosity take priority over memorization.

This philosophy is the key to success for their many international students and English Language Learners. Students coming from multi-cultural backgrounds take to memorization differently and many don't succeed.

In the spring of 2020, when teachers and students were struggling to find a way to finish the school year and pass exams, Lindsey and Luke offered their AP statistics course for free. "We knew that teachers were completely overwhelmed due to the pandemic, but that they still wanted all of their students to do well on the AP Exam, despite the circumstances." - Luke

Luke and Lindsey saw equity as a math problem that, in this case, called for lowering the cost of a resource they poured a lot of time and energy into. Learn more about what they do with Stats Medic.
