At Mathnasium, we understand the value in all different learning styles - that’s why we use manipulatives in our centers to help those students who may learn through seeing and doing rather than simply on paper. These activities are a sure way to build maths skills and make maths fun at home in the same way we do in our Maths-Only Learning Centers. To find your closest center, visit our website here:
