WHAT CHILDREN LEARN

 

In high school, students focus on higher math, mastering algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, and probability in preparation for high school exit exams, college placement exams, and standardized college entrance exams such as the SAT and ACT.

 

OUR APPROACH

 

Students engage, one on one, in a unique combination of mental, verbal, visual, tactile, and written exercises (click here to learn more) that cover (and surpass) state math standards as well as the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the new Common Core State Standards. Basic math skills are blended with a program specifically designed to help students build number sense by showing them how numbers work.

Each student is evaluated with a written and verbal assessment unique to Mathnasium. Based on their assessment results, we assemble a tailored program just for them designed to close any educational gaps that they may have and jump ahead when they are ready for advanced math challenges. Mental math is emphasized.

 

TEST PREPARATION

 

Students that prepare for standardized tests such as the ISEE, SAT, ACT, high school entrance exams, and college placement exams at Mathnasium enjoy a substantial advantage over those who don't.
