Mathnasium Makes Fractions Make Sense!

Sep 12, 2019

If Your Student Struggles with Fractions, Mathnasium of Hendersonville is Here to Help!

 

There are endless ways that fractions are used in classrooms:

  • Identifying fractions
  • Ordering fractions
  • Adding/Subtracting fractions with like denominators
  • Adding/Subtracting fractions with unlike denominators
  • Multiplying fractions
  • Dividing fractions
  • Converting between Improper Fractions and Mixed Numbers 
  • Finding Equivalent Fractions
  • Simplifying fractions

 

After fractions are first introduced to your student in the third grade, they will continue to see them throughout math classes and in the real world, so it is essential they make sense. 

 

How does Mathnasium help?

The Mathnasium Method is designed to build off a student’s prerequisite knowledge to help them build confidence in math and start learning right away. Our process has three parts: Assessing your child, Creating a Customized Learning Plan, and Teaching them their customized curriculum one-on-one with our Instructors.

 

Assessments

All Mathnasium students start by taking a customized assessment which pinpoints their learning needs. We meet them where they are and take them where they need to go. Mathnasium’s unique assessment process determines (with great accuracy) exactly what each child knows and what they need to learn. Our assessment reveals each specific skill area that needs to be mastered so kids aren’t wasting time reviewing concepts they already know.

 

 

Customized Learning Plan

We then design a customized learning plan for teaching the concepts the student needs to master. The learning plan identifies the math concepts needed to meet the specific learning goals for your child. We use a combination of proprietary materials and instruction techniques to ensure your child masters these concepts.

 

Specially Trained, Caring People Who Teach

Mathnasium’s specially trained instructors implement the learning plan and work with each student to ensure they master the material. We want to be there when the learning happens—all teaching takes place during the Mathnasium session, and we don’t assign homework. Our math tutors foster a caring, encouraging environment that helps kids thrive and learn!
