Our Math Support is Better Than Ever!
All grades and all levels!
What is math all about — parents and professionals ask?
Early math is rote learning, all memory. Memorizing does not teach practical competence to accomplish a math task in today’s world. Math is a subject which builds on previous skills as it extends knowledge.
Individuals with learning difficulties are often always in a transient stage. Dyslexia can interfere with math, too!
Gaps in learning handicap the student.
- Students need to master how to organize and pattern math skills.
- Next, students need to learn the process of applying math skills to new concepts.
- Knowing all parts of a whole enables a student to understand sequences, organization, and interactions of a math curriculum.
These skills Equal Success!
Incoming students, regardless of age, are given a skill assessment. We assess the hierarchy of skills required to allow the student to become competent at their current grade level. Then we coach the students in acquiring the skills that are weak or missing. Once missing skills are mastered we can sub-plant up-coming curriculum and demonstrate to the student how to effectively combine skills to accomplish new math tasks.
We make sure each student is able to competently read and comprehend mathematical word problems to determine the steps required to solve for an answer.
To satisfy the new math standards we require the student write out the steps taken to solve the problem at hand. Writing solidifies the skill organization of the math process.
Your school will administer State and National exams, PSSAs for our younger students and Keystone Exams, PSATs and SATs for our secondary students.
It is Never too early to be thinking about the students who may benefit from a math program, built on a firm foundation.
