Frequently Asked Questions

Contact your local Mathnasium Learning Center with any questions you may have about our summer math programs. Here are some of the more common ones we get:

  • How can I prepare for the next grade's math over the summer?

    Building math skills during the summer can be fun, challenging, and rewarding. Doing just a few minutes of math daily can increase your retention and boost new skills to prepare for next year. Building confidence, practicing, and preparing can all be successfully done with the help of summer math programs led by experienced tutors.

  • How can I practice math at home over the summer?

    Practicing math should be fun and keep your interest piqued. The specific ways that work best for you depend on your knowledge, ability, and grade level.

    Find ways to practice math during everyday activities, whether playing math games or going over practice problems online. Read short math stories and play board games. One of the best things you can do is attend summer math camps or enroll in summer math programs.

  • How can I help my child practice math over the summer?

    Children learn through imitation, so if you are excited about math at home, they will be.

    Inspire your child to welcome the challenge of new problems. Read books with your child that feature elements of math, and play board games that require counting or strategizing.

    Many apps and computer games gamify math and are much more fun than sitting with a list of problems to solve. You can also enroll your child in summer math tutoring programs or summer math camps.

  • How do I know if my child needs summer math practice before the next school year begins?

    Look at the final grade your child received in math class. Is it on par with their other grades, or is it lower? Also, does your child speak negatively about math? In either case, you may want to get them some extra summer math help.

    Since every year of math builds upon what was previously learned, chances are good your child will continue to struggle if they are struggling now. Summer math tutoring experts can help your child benefit from summer math practice, whether they are below, at, or above grade level.

  • What are some options for studying math in the summer?

    Attending summer math camps and participating in summer math help sessions are great options. Both help students retain information so they don’t lose what they learned during the school year.

    These are also excellent ways to build a strong foundation of math mastery that will last through the rest of their academic career and beyond. Every child can benefit from summer math help, regardless of whether they are struggling, on par, or advanced.

  • How can I keep my math skills sharp over the summer?

    Keep using them! Incorporate math into everyday tasks. Take advantage of technology, download math apps, and don’t ignore math practice websites; there are some good ones out there. Consider signing up for summer math camps or enrolling in summer math programs. This will hone your math skills in an enjoyable way.

  • What are some fun ways to practice math during summer break?

    There are so many unexpected ways to have fun while doing math! Go shopping and compare prices, calculate sales and discounts, and add up costs for multiple items. Watch sports and keep stats on your favorite players or teams. Start a little summer business and get some practice with money. All of these activities will sharpen your skills.

  • What happens during the initial assessment at Mathnasium?

    At Mathnasium, we understand that assessments can sometimes feel stressful for students. That’s why we take a personalized and engaging approach to each assessment. We start by building rapport with your child, giving them a short center tour, and setting expectations.

    We conduct both a verbal and written assessment to identify your child’s strengths and areas for improvement as well as to gain a true understanding of how each student approaches and thinks about math. More importantly, our assessments don’t feel like a test – we use interactive methods to ensure your child feels comfortable and confident.

  • How are assessments different from tests given in school?

    Our assessments are different from tests given in school because they are designed to identify your student's strengths and weaknesses in math so we can create a personalized learning plan that meets their unique needs and goals. Tests in school, on the other hand, are designed to evaluate your child’s understanding of a particular topic.

    It's important for your child to understand that we’re not here to evaluate their performance or compare them to their peers. Our focus is on helping them achieve their full potential.
