At Mathnasium, we help kids understand math by teaching the way that makes sense to them. Children who consistently attend sessions at our learning centers enjoy a transformative learning experience and make huge strides in the classroom.
Attitude: When math makes sense, kids develop a more positive attitude toward math.
Understanding: Mathnasium teaches for understanding, giving students the ability to succeed in any math environment. As Larry Martinek, Mathnasium’s Chief Instructional Officer notes, “It's pretty easy to forget things you memorize and near impossible to forget things you understand."
School Progress: When kids learn math in a way that they truly understand, they achieve greater success in the classroom.

"You can't make math any easier."
"I never thought I could do math. Now I know better. Thanks."
"I love this class because we get to do fun work."
"I really like this class because every day I know I'm going to learn something new."
"This man opened my mind to numbers."
"I learned I'm capable of doing the work."
"That was fun!"
"Before I came to this class I hated to do any sort of math. Now that I?m in this class, I love it! I don?t love it because it is easy, though, in fact, I like it because 1) it is more challenging, and 2) because of the way you teach it."
"Where were you when I was in school?"
"Why isn't everyone doing math this way?"
"I can't believe this program is not used in every school in the world!"
"It was so terrific to have our son treated as an individual and to have him be challenged."
"We appreciate so much everything you have done for our daughter. She has really blossomed and matured, and much of that is due to you. You've encouraged her uniqueness and allowed her to develop and grow at her own pace. We all know how good she's felt about her accomplishments and how it has contributed to her growing self-esteem."
"This approach completely changed how I think about math."
-Suzanne Stein, fifth grade teacher
"Larry, you motivate students! Most interesting to me was the meaning of math vocabulary. When children were taught the meaning of words (roots and suffixes), math made more sense to them."
-Rhonda Nail, fourth grade teacher
"I have just finished reading all of the materials that you gave us last Saturday at JTD. You are right on with all of it! as you already know, I'm sure. I've begun using your materials in my class. It IS interesting that even the very smart ones don't have a math sense; it is such a pleasure to be able to 'give' them that sense. I'm going to have a lot of fun using your materials and watching the children enjoy math--with gusto! Thank you, thank you."
-Judy Termell, third grade teacher
"I received useful information that opened my eyes to some new ways to introduce math to my class."
