I have two boys who are experiencing the Summit Math program. They have both said, “This is the best way to learn math.”
The Summit Math books are unlike typical textbooks. They allow students like myself to truly grasp the topics in each book. It doesn't matter how you learn or what speed you go at, these books are made so you can learn at your own pace while still understanding all the material. You have to make sure to check the answer key after each problem, try to figure out what you did right or wrong, and if needed, ask a teacher/peer for help. These books make learning math enjoyable.
Learn at your own pace, at school or at home.
With timely explanations that guide students through each topic, and an Answer Key to provide frequent and immediate feedback, Summit Math textbooks help students learn in every schooling context.
Summit Math allows students to work at their own pace which allows me the opportunity to provide individualized attention to those who need it. The collaborative nature of the curriculum has students speaking the language of math while sharing ideas with their classmates.
Learn at school.
Teachers can switch between full-class instruction and 1-on-1 support with textbooks that help them build collaborative classrooms where students learn at different paces. Summit Math emphasizes thinking through ideas, and forming connections between topics.
Learn at home.
Designed for self-paced learning, Summit Math textbooks work well for homeschooling families. Students can learn independently and check their answers as they progress. Direct teaching is available through a low-priced subscription to step-by-step videos.
Our daughter can go at her pace, use the videos if she is struggling, check her answers as she goes. We help when asked but it is nice to have so many options for her to succeed on her own.

Meet the Author
Alex Joujan, M.S.Ed
Alex has been helping kids learn math for 20+ years. He currently teaches at The Pingry School in Basking Ridge, NJ, where he has been on the faculty since 2011. During this time he has received 2 awards for excellence in teaching. Alex started writing his own resources in 2013 to improve the learning experience for his students. This project developed into the Summit Math series of books, so named to reflect that his curriculum is like hiking; although hiking requires effort and persistence, people can hike at different paces and still reach the summit of the hike. Similarly, Summit Math books are designed to guide students toward a mastery of each topic, while allowing students to learn at their own pace.
Alex was born in Mukinge, Zambia and moved to Chattanooga, TN when he was 5. His family moved to TN after his father died in a car accident, and he is grateful to the many people who guided him through his childhood. His decision to pursue a career in teaching was partially motivated by his appreciation for the impact that his teachers had in his life.
In 2005, he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Muhlenberg College. While in college, Alex volunteered weekly at an after-school tutoring program for kids in downtown Allentown. At the end of his senior year, he received 3 awards for his involvement in community service, in addition to the Muhlenberg College Goodwill Prize, awarded to the senior who has made the greatest impact on the surrounding community. In 2006, he earned his M.S. Ed. from the University of Pennsylvania. In 2006, he was also awarded a 5-year Teaching Fellowship from the Knowles Teacher Initiative. Alex has been a Knowles Senior Fellow since 2011.
Alex continues writing to help improve the learning experience for both students and teachers. He writes every book with the same intention: to help students succeed in learning math by starting with simple, foundational concepts and gradually building on those ideas in small steps.
