Three Types of Math Students- Which is Your Child?

Feb 10, 2020

 

3 MOST COMMON TYPES OF

MATH STUDENTS.

 

And the unique frustrations each faces in a traditional classroom setting.

 
 
 

THE SIGNS

Lost in class, Overwhelmed by homework, Insecure about abilities

 
 

THE CONSEQUENCE

Low grades & test scores, Diminished self confidence, Math-avoidance throughout life 

 

Find the math holes & fill them in so new math comprehension has a base to build off of! 

 

THE SOLUTION

MATHNASIUM GIVES EACH CHILD THE MATH THEY NEED IN THE WAY IT MAKES SENSE TO THEM.

STUDENT TYPE NUMBER 1: MISSING FOUNDATIONAL PIECES

Can you guess the ONE THING that would make every math teacher's job (at least) twice as easy?

If every student had the same math background, same learning style & same rate of absorbing new math material.

Imagine it!  Every lesson would meet the needs of EVERY student EVERYDAY.  All would be sufficiently challenged and none would be left behind.

Dream on.  :)

Real classroom needs are not easy to meet (which is why we at Mathnasium respect teachers so much).  

A class of 24 math students means 24 unique math backgrounds, learning styles & appetites for taking on new content.

However, each of these 24 math students most likely falls into one of these three categories.  In fact, you probably did too when you were in school!

By the end of this article you will know exactly which of the three student types fits your child, the frustrations she/he is dealing with and the SOLUTION!

STUDENT TYPE NUMBER 3: ALREADY MASTERED IT (YAWN)

STUDENT TYPE NUMBER 2: THEIR OWN WAY OF THINKING

 
 

THE SIGNS

Math frustration, Sudden drop in grades, Complaining about teacher

 
 

THE CONSEQUENCE

Low grades & test scores, Mistaken conclusion of being dumb

 

Watch. Listen. Observe.  Discover their learning style and mold teaching to fit it.

 

THE SOLUTION

 
 

THE SIGNS

Disruptive in class, Disengaged in homework, Loss of interest in math

 
 

THE CONSEQUENCE

Bored in class, Sloppy work, Unmet potential 

 

Assess their ability & enrich them with new math challenges!
