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.

I want to share with all of you the reasons that I decided to open a Mathnasium Learning Center in Cottage Grove. Last summer, I sent my son, age 10 and my daughter, age 7, to a Mathnasium Learning Center to cut down on their screen time, and they loved every minute of it. My son even asked me to take him to Mathnasium everyday, because, according to him, "The instructors are very nice, they don't yell at me when I make a mistake, they give me time and space to work through the Math problems, and help me when I need it. I also like the fact that the same concepts come back several times so I have more time to practice before the tests come." After more than 7 months enrolling at Mathnasium, my son, who is now in 5th grade, is working on Algebra 1, and my daughter, in 2nd grade, is working on Fractions. In addition to the academic benefits, their social skills have also improved, and their confidence is booming like tulips in spring.
So, I decided to bring the benefits that Mathnasium has given my children to all the students in Cottage Grove, Saint Paul Park, and the surrounding communities. I make it my goal to fulfill the Mathnasium mission statement: "Help every child to understand-and master-math. It will change their world."
