Mathnasium @ Home Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is Mathnasium@Home?

Mathnasium @home is an Online Tutoring tool that gives us the power to provide real-time face-to-face Math instruction with students via an online collaboration platform. The Learning Experience is strikingly similar to how they would study normally, at our Center.

Please visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRGnwUlJxKA  for more information.

How do login for my sessions?

Families will receive a link to be used to logon got all sessions. Please save this URL in your favorites for ALL future sessions.

What systems are supported by Mathnasium@home?

Any Laptop or desktop with a Windows operating system or Mac with internet access can be used. Currently, the application will not work on iPad, Smart Phones or Android tablets. It may also not work on certain Chromebooks for security reasons.

What browsers can be used for Mathnasium@home?
Currently, the application will work only with Google chrome or Firefox browsers. Internet explorer is not supported at the moment.

Do we need any other equipment?

Not at all mandatory, but we may recommend the following for an enhanced online learning experience for your child.

  • Headphone, Mic, and Webcam - In order to reduce distraction, we recommend students using any basic or noise-canceling headphones with mic. Webcam, if not built-in, is recommended. These will help them to interact with instructors in a holistic manner while working on math problems
  • Digital Draw Board - Only for non-touchscreen laptops/ desktops, we recommend using WACOM board (PTH-651, PTH-660) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-ZYte_UOVM) or Optical Pen Mouse (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbXH5FgYD84) for non-touch screen systems. Widely available in many stores like Staples, BestBuy, Amazon, others, these are USB based gadgets, that can help students write on the screen like with pen on paper.


Do students work on the same curriculum in Mathnasium@Home as we do at our center?

Yes, students will work on the same prescriptive (PKs), Workout Books and focus on's from the comfort of home. They will work with instructors in real-time in the same way they work at our center.

How will students get help with Homework and Test Preparations?
We will provide a shared folder where parents/ students can upload either scanned copy or picture of their school material and we will get that on the online screen where the student will work with the instructors online, similar to how they would work at our center. Alternatively, please reach out to us.

How will the student get their instructor's attention when needed while working online via Mathnasium@Home?
While instructors will constantly be checking each student similar to how they do in the center, if students need attention, there are multiple ways to seek that. They can use the wave (hand icon) inside the application (on the top right side). This will alert the instructors. Also, students could chat with the instructor when they have questions that instructors can reply to. Also, they are connected via headphones to explain things in detail.

Are students expected to complete the entire workbook in the same session in Mathnasium@Home?
No, similar to how the students work on pages at their own pace, they will continue to work online. They will have the ability to continue in subsequent sessions picking up from exactly where they left off.

Can students use Mathnasium@home along with learning at our center?
We recommend Mathnasium@home for any family where students will be away and not be able to come to the center for 2 to 3 weeks because of travel or other circumstances. This option will enable them to continue the learning process and not lose touch. Since we have the learning plan in one system, switching between an online and offline mode for any duration shorter than what has been noted above is not recommended. We recommend no more than 2 switches within a school year and not jumping back-and-forth within a shorter interval of time.

Do students need a separate email address to access Mathnasium@Home?
No, Parents can use their Gmail account login ID for their child/children to access Mathnasium@home. If they do not have Gmail, parents can create a Mathnasium @Home login ID with their own non-Gmail email address.

Can parents use the same email address for siblings?
Yes, when siblings are not attending class simultaneously, the login can be the same. The student should exit the session and logout using the menu below their Name showing Online Status.

How do we schedule Mathnasium@Home?
All appointments can be scheduled using the current appointment scheduling system available on the "Schedule" tab. Please reach out to us for any additional queries on this.

 

  

My child already excels in math.  Will Mathnasium address their needs?

Absolutely.  Since Mathnasium is customized to the needs of each individual student, we can help advanced students stay engaged and stimulated by introducing them to more challenging math topics.  More importantly, we can also help your child to develop even stronger numeric fluency and critical thinking skills, which are essential for continued success in math. 

Why do children struggle with math?

Have you ever watched a foreign film without subtitles? You can usually get a good idea of what is going on, but do you really understand the point of the movie? If a student is missing key foundational math skills, it makes it very difficult to keep up in class. They feel confused and frustrated...much the same way you felt while watching that movie and not understanding the language.

Most schools treat kids the same because it is assumed that all kids learn the same way and at the same rate. The teachers are expected to cover vast amounts of material in a short period of time, not to mention the common core testing. If your child doesn't get a chance to master a skill for whatever reason – that's too bad. Teachers must move quickly to stay “on schedule". As a result, we see too many kids fall behind in math.

What happens next? The class moves on! Here come multiplication facts, fractions, percentages, decimals, mixed numbers, exponents, ratios, x=?, divisibility rules, algebra, geometry, equations. It never slows down so your child can catch up! They feel overwhelmed, embarrassed, and all alone! They begin to expect and accept failure as the "new normal" and think "I'm just not good in math!" They lose all confidence in themselves and all of their other grades begin to suffer. 

Is it any wonder why you have to fight with them to do their homework? With many kids, it is easier for them to fight you and not do the work than to put the effort into it only to see failure again. After a while, it just doesn't seem worth the effort for them.

Will a private one-on-one tutor work?

Unfortunately, in most cases a private tutor is a temporary fix for a long term problem. Private tutors only help children "survive" tonight's homework, but they don't address underlying issues. In most cases, private tutoring is not going to be a meaningful long term solution.  Your child deserves to have that long-term impact in their math education!

How is Mathnasium different?

Great Question! The very first thing we do is give your child a skills assessment. We give them both a written and oral assessment so that we can get a deep understanding of not only what they know, but how they think!

We sit down with them, put them at ease, and give them an assessment that doesn't feel too easy or too hard. Most importantly, we find out HOW THEY LEARN! Then we build their trust by giving them a few ideas and strategies that they can use immediately. We then build a customized learning plan that targets skill gaps and quickly shows them success. In many cases “success” in math is something they have been craving!

Why is confidence in math important?

It's not just important, It's critical! Kids need to see that they can do the work so that they can feel confident! This fresh, new confidence will spill over to many other areas of your child's life. At this point you will start to see peace at home! You won't be having to fight with them to do homework. Not only will they have the confidence and the skills to attack it but they'll start bringing home better grades from school. How do we know this? Because we have seen it over and over again with hundreds of our students!

Are you doing one-on-one tutoring?

Another great question! Our instructors are not just average math tutors. We have brilliant, engaging, inspiring math experts that work one on one with your child long enough to get them started and make sure they understand what to do. Then the instructor steps back and lets your child work independently to give them the time to process this new information without the pressure and stress of being watched. It also prevents a "learned helplessness" where the student feels that they need the instructor sitting in front of them all the time in order to be successful.

Our instructors quickly come back after a minute or two in order to make sure they are doing the problems correctly, give them encouragement, and praise them for their efforts! If the student needs more help we simply teach the lesson again in a different way without judgment or ridicule until they "get it." This enables your child to become a "confident, independent learner."

How does Mathnasium address Common Core?

We hear this question a lot and find that parents are frustrated and confused how they are suppose to help their child with common core. Learn more about how Mathnasium addresses the core issues here.
