As we close the book on the 2013 - 2014 school year, at Mathnasium, we're excited about the possibilities for our students once summer rolls around! Here are a few reasons to seize every opportunity this summer - the perfect time to get ahead.
• Everything kids do during the summer helps them get ahead
. According to a recent study
, at summer's end, students perform one month behind their progress in the spring. Because new school material is at a standstill, everything kids do during the summer to build their math skills helps them get ahead!
• Summer is also the perfect time to revisit and fortify math foundations. Math concepts build over time, and often, we find that students fall behind because they didn't fully understand topics taught in earlier grades. While filling in these gaps is a primary objective of the Mathnasium program 365 days a year, without school stress or homework pressure to worry about, kids have even more time to step back and master these skills over the summer.
• We love helping our students prepare for next year's challenges.
Another summertime perk: more time to get a head start on material they'll encounter next school year. And the more prepared students feel, the more excited they'll be about challenges that lie ahead. Third party studies show significant increase in grade level skills
after three months at Mathnasium!
