At its core, Mathnasium is about not only teaching students formulas and problem-solving techniques but also showing them how to think on their feet mathematically, which is possible when students gain in-depth understanding of math concepts. “Learning math is just like learning an instrument and learning an art,” Withycombe said. “There’s muscle memory there, and we need to help kids learn fundamental skills.” Common Core curriculum is aimed at a similar thing, an effort to instill in students a higher level of thinking.
