The Black Girl MATHgic subscription is on Summer Break, but we're still here, fulfilling all orders placed in our online shop. Explore our incredible selection of math resources and let the journey of discovery continue!


The Black Girl MATHgic Box is the first and only subscription box designed to increase math confidence and decrease math anxiety in girls on a 3rd-8th grade math level.
Have you ever heard someone say (or said yourself), “I’m bad at math” or “I’m not a math person?” That’s math anxiety! Math anxiety is defined as negative emotions around doing math problems. Approximately 93% of Americans experience some level of math anxiety (Source:

$44.95 plus $6 flat rate shipping (no sales tax unless you are in the state of Michigan). Shipping is not “built in” to the price of the box because we want to maximize the items you receive in each package, not use some of that cost to cover shipping. In fact, shipping actually costs more than you pay, but we absorb the rest.

We currently ship to the United States only.

Each box is on based on a real-world theme fueled by the story of a black woman mathematician. The box includes:

  • Feature and exclusive interview of a black woman mathematician to show representation and develop your girl's math identity (her ability to see herself as a learner and doer of math)
  • A colorful, engaging 12-page math  activity workbook based on the theme + reinforces a wide variety of basic math concepts and skills including fractions, decimals, word problems, operations, logical thinking, geometry, etc. (concepts covered vary based on the theme)
  • 3-5 items (including at least one Screen-Free activity or manipulative) to bring the theme to life (Items differ from month-to-month)
  • An original math affirmation card to strengthen her math confidence
  • Custom sticker sheet
  • A Caring Adult Guide to help YOU help her maximize her box experience (you do NOT have to be a math whiz to help her enjoy the Black Girl MATHgic Box! Commitment is all you need.)
  • Digital Answer Key to the math activity workbook (no more Googling answers!)
  • Over $100+ value in every box

Math is a life skill and is all around us. Math helps us with everyday things like shopping, finances, cooking and problem-solving. On top of that, having a solid math foundation can open doors that lead to many exciting, lucrative opportunities.


Furthermore, math is the foundation of STEM. STEM is a term that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. According to the National Science Foundation, to succeed in our new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past. This is impossible to do without math. Math is considered the ‘gatekeeper’ to STEM because it is naturally present in ALL STEM subjects (think Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Engineering, etc.). Therefore, building math confidence in children from an early age is a must.


With salaries in STEM careers starting at $62,000, having a solid foundation in math can set up our kids up for a financially stable adulthood. Even if they are not interested in pursuing a STEM major or career, we all need reasonably good math skills to move through life and be productive members of society.

UPDATE: Our boy box has officially arrived! Check out the first box, themed "Football Season" here!


Decades of research show that girls underrate their abilities on tasks and careers that are culturally considered male, of which math is included. The gender gap in math and science isn’t going away. Women remain less likely to enroll in math-heavy fields of study and pursue math-heavy careers. This pattern persists despite major studies finding no meaningful differences in mathematics performance among girls and boys.


Among U.S. students who score the same on math achievement tests, girls are less confident in their math ability than boys are. That confidence predicts who goes on to major in math-heavy fields like engineering and computer science. The gender gap varies across STEM fields – science, technology, engineering and math. Yet, women remain underrepresented in high-earning and high-demand fields that require the most math skills, such as engineering and physics. (Source)


Knowing this, we wanted to create an experience that helps build our girls’ math confidence and shows them that math is just as much for them as it is for boys.


We are actively working on a boy box, but we knew with this glaring data (and from our own experiences working with girls), that we had to get the girls going first. We believe that when we solve for those who have historically been overlooked, underrepresented or left behind, everyone wins.

No, the Black Girl MATHgic Box is not only for black girls. Girls of all racial and ethnic backgrounds benefit from the math skill and confidence-building our box offers. The company title and box imagery are curated for black girls because of the unique circumstances they face as a doubly marginalized group and their large underrepresentation/underestimation in STEM fields. But the exciting thing about the box is that ALL girls of all backgrounds enjoy and benefit from the math confidence boost it provides while learning more about black history (which is American history) every single month, which benefits us all! #WinWin

Not at all! Each box includes a Caring Adult Guide card with tips to help you help your girl maximize her box experience, plus a Digital Answer Key for the math activity workbook! The Black Girl MATHgic Box is a great bonding activity for you and your girl.

We are more focused on where your girl is in her math journey more than her age. The BGM Box is designed to reinforce the foundation of math, so the lessons and activities are for those on a 3rd-8th grade math skill level. We have two options:a 3rd-5th grade math level box and a 6th-8th grade math skill level box. For example, if you have a 14-year old girl who is in the 9th grade, but on a 6th grade math skill level, she will benefit from the box.
We suggest ordering one box per child as the box is designed for each child to complete individual activities and receive supporting items. It is also important to note, if the children are on different math grade levels, they may require a different math level box depending on their current math abilities. We do encourage girls to interact with one another while working through their own BGM boxes. We do encourage kids to interact with one another while working through their own BGM boxes!

Yes, we do! We love servicing schools, homeschooling organizations, school districts, and youth-serving organizatons/non-profits. If you're interested in learning more about our bulk order program or sending over a purchase order, please e-mail us at or call us at 302.313.MATH. We can't wait to hear from you!


Boxes ship between the 14th and 18th of the month. (If you join us after the 20th of the current month, your first box will ship the following month)
We sincerely apologize for sending out a box without an item. Because we have many boxes to pack every month, there’s always the chance we miss an item by accident. Please let us know if you’re missing an item by sending us an email at and we’ll get you taken care of!

We understand receiving duplicates or something she doesn’t like can be frustrating. Unfortunately, because we plan our boxes months ahead of shipping them, we’re unable to control this dilemma. However, what makes our selected items unique are the ways in which we illustrate how they apply to math through the monthly theme and math activity booklet. If she receives an item in our box that she already has or doesn’t like, we suggest having her gift it to a friend – the items we source make great gifts!

You will be billed on the 20th of the month. The payment for your first box will happen at the time of your initial purchase. Subscriptions will automatically renew on the 20th of the month until you cancel/pause your subscription.
