Summer Power Math Workout Programs:

We’ll help you choose the one that is right for your child including:

Numerical Fluency—Our Numerical Fluency Summer Program teaches students techniques not only to master, but to extend beyond, basic addition and subtraction facts. Key concepts include the ten fundamental prerequisites and skills necessary for addition and subtraction fact mastery, visual representations, word problems, and more. 

Multiplication Fact Fluency—The Multiplication Fact Fluency Summer Program exposes students to scalable strategies that are applicable outside of the standard 12x12 multiplication table. Key concepts include count-bys, repeated addition, commutativity, launching points, word problems, and more.

Fractions—Students looking for either a preview of key fractional concepts or who are in need of a refresher before next school are perfect for our Fractions Summer Program. Key concepts include: naming and drawing fractions, improper fractions, mixed numbers, complements to the whole, comparing fractions, adding and subtracting fractions, ordering fractions, word problems, and more.

Problem Solving—Designed to create mathematical thinkers at all ages, our comprehensive Problem Solving Summer Program allows students to experience depth in problem solving. Key concepts include mastery of problem solving related to the four basic operations, proportional reasoning, fractional concepts, algebraic problem solving, and more.

Algebra Readiness—Upon completion of our Algebra Readiness Summer Program, students will have mastered key concepts in preparation for Algebra I coursework. Key concepts include expressions, linear equations, graphing, proportional thinking, algebraic word problems and more.   

Geometry Readiness—Upon completion of our Geometry Readiness Summer Program, students will have mastered key concepts in preparation for high school Geometry coursework. Key concepts include classifying shapes and angles, transversals, congruence and similarity, surface area and volume, conditional statements, an introduction to proof, and more.

Math might not be as fun as art or sports, or as cool as robotics and science, but it’s still pretty awesome! 

 

Students need to stop thinking of math as something that they will only use in the classroom. Math is used everywhere in life, from sports stats to cooking, construction, landscaping, nursing, driving, and more.

 

Math literacy is essential, and there are endless practical ways that kids can apply math to everyday life. The trick is getting them to realize and appreciate that!

 

So, as school lets out for the Summer, should I give my kids a break?

 

This is the #1 question parents ask every spring.

 

The answer is:  That depends...

 

Have you heard of the “Summer Slide” or “Summer Learning Loss”?  A Johns Hopkins study reveals that most kids lose 2-3 months of critical thinking skills over the summer.  While this Summer Learning Loss has been shown to affect all areas, math skills are the hardest hit.  This might not come as a surprise, since math is a tough subject for students and parents alike. Also, students typically don’t get the repetition needed to really master and retain the skills being covered in class.  So, any break from math will degrade their learning progress.

 

While many kids are looking to catch up over the summer, there are also those advanced students who are wanting to push forward and get ahead.  With over 95% of the highest paying jobs straight out of college being in STEM fields, competition for college entry and scholarships is more competitive than it has ever been.  STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.  While these four fields are very different, they all derive their basic foundations from Math.

 

Did you know:

  • 40% of parents feel their child has difficulty with math, or at best, is just getting by
  • One-in-three parents are unable to help their teens with high school math
  • Students can lose up to 2.6 months of math skills over the summer
  • The first 6 weeks of the fall semester are spent re-learning old material to try to make up for Summer Learning Loss
  • It can take up to 2 months from the first day of school for a student’s brain development to get back on track

By the end of grade 6, students who have experienced Summer Learning Loss over the years are an average of two years behind state standards!
