Since its inception in 2006, JAK Publishing has quickly become one of Virginia’s leaders in state-specific math resources.  JAK Publishing is dedicated to educating children and helping educators by providing quality math resources.

As both company founder and author of the Math Madness book series, Jennifer Kehoe is an educator who understands that every minute counts in the classroom.  In previous teaching positions in both Virginia and North Carolina she was frustrated by the lack of ready-to-use resources that supported classroom instruction and provided teachers with the tools needed to assess students’ progress, build foundational skills and concepts, and provide needed feedback to target individual and group remediation.  Born from necessity, Jennifer created and implemented with great success in her classroom, the Math Madness program.  After much prompting by fellow educators she published her first book: Math Madness – A Comprehensive Preparatory Guide for the Virginia SOL (Grade 5). Embraced by schools across the state, she went on to publish two more books: Math Madness – A Comprehensive Preparatory Guide for the Virginia SOL (Grade 3) and Math Madness – A Comprehensive Preparatory Guide for the Virginia SOL (Grade 4). Within the first two years of publication, Math Madness was being used in over 50% of Virginia’s school divisions and one in every seven schools.

In 2010 JAK Publishing proudly announced the expansion of the Math Madness series to include three books for the teachers and students in North Carolina: Math Madness – A Comprehensive Preparatory Guide for the North Carolina EOG (Grade 3), Math Madness – A Comprehensive Preparatory Guide for the North Carolina EOG (Grade 4), and Math Madness – A Comprehensive Preparatory Guide for the North Carolina EOG (Grade 5).  In July 2012 each North Carolina book was updated to directly align with the Common Core State Standards as adopted by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.

In August 2017 JAK Publishing further expanded the Math Madness series to include three additional books to meet the needs of Pennsylvania's teachers and students. Math Madness - A Comprehensive Preparatory for the Pennsylvania PSSA (Grade 3), Math Madness - A Comprehensive Preparatory Guide for the Pennsylvania PSSA (Grade 4), and Math Madness - A Comprehensive Preparatory Guide for the Pennsylvania PSSA (Grade 5). All Pennsylvania books are directly aligned with the 2014 Pennsylvania Core Standards.

Educators can be confident that the problems in each Math Madness book are grade-specific and directly aligned with their state's standards.
