Our approach is to use sophisticated techniques to determine – with great accuracy – what a student knows and does not know. Next, we tailor-make a personalized and prescriptive learning program. Each student follows the program with the help of specially trained Mathnasium teachers who provide instruction -- and lots of warm encouragement. For proof of progress, we rely on the student's report card, independent tests, and parent testimony, to measure of the speed and magnitude of improvement in math skills, numerical thinking and attitude.

   
EVALUATE  

Comprehensive Written and Oral Evaluation
Mathnasium students are given a two-part diagnostic test. The first is a written test designed to assess the student's weakness with respect to grade-level material. The second part is a series of oral questions, designed to assess the depth of the student's understanding of key math concepts and skills.

   
EDUCATE  

Customized Program for your Child
We use the results of our assessment to develop a learning plan and courseware which caters to the unique needs of the student. The student is guided by a Mathnasium teacher when the student visits after school. The courseware focuses on written materials, but may include manipulatives, software, or other teaching tools. Learning new concepts is balanced with practicing those that have already been learned. Kids “work out” once or twice a week or as often as they like, just like a gym.

   
VALIDATE  

Demonstrate – and measure – results. We believe your child's progress (and improved attitude) will be obvious to you, the parent. But we rely on third party proofs of progress: Report cards and standardized assessments, provided by your child's school.
