(CBS DETROIT)– Brittany Rhodes – a Spelman graduate and mathematics major- has always had a knack for math. But, when she realized that the young girls she tutored faced math anxiety, she created the Black Girl MATHgic subscription box.

Rhodes officially launched her business in June 2019 and has seen much success. Recently, she won the HER IDEA Pitch Competition held at the 110th NAACP National Convention in Detroit.

The subscription box is a convenient, fun way to engage young girls in 3rd grade-8th grade to fall in love with math. Even adults are encouraged to order the subscription box.

Every month, Rhodes will send boxes containing interactive math activities, a profile of black female mathematicians, and affirmations. The response has been overwhelmingly positive.
