Math topics introduced in class today build on concepts taught prior years. Sometimes students have knowledge gaps from previous years. These gaps can prevent kids from keeping up with the class — and cause them to fall behind. Other times, students may lose interest in math because they don’t feel challenged. They are finishing work early and acing their tests and quizzes. Either way, Mathnasium is the place for you. Is Your Student Behind? “Children don’t hate math. What they hate is being confused, intimidated, and embarrassed by math.” Every day children struggle in math — not for lack of natural potential, but because they haven’t yet developed the right way of thinking about math. At Mathnasium, we believe that every child has the ability to be successful in math. It’s just a matter of teaching math the way that makes sense to them. We’ll work with your child so they understand math and get on the path to improvement. Our Approach Our approach, the Mathnasium Method, pinpoints exactly what makes math difficult for each child in grades 2–12.
