Feb 4, 2020 | Ashburn

Here's a breakdown of the three most common types of math students: the signs, consequences and solution for each one. By the end of this short article you will know exactly which of the three types best describes your child and what steps to take to get them succeeding in math!

THE SIGNS

Lost in class, Overwhelmed by homework, Insecure about abilities

THE CONSEQUENCE

Low grades & test scores, Diminished self confidence, Math-avoidance throughout life

Find the math holes & fill them in so new math comprehension has a base to build off of!

THE SOLUTION

MATHNASIUM GIVES EACH CHILD THE MATH THEY NEED IN THE WAY IT MAKES SENSE TO THEM.

STUDENT TYPE NUMBER 1: MISSING FOUNDATIONAL PIECES

Can you guess the ONE THING that would make every math teacher's job (at least) twice as easy?

If every student had the same math background, same learning style & same rate of absorbing new math material.

Imagine it! Every lesson would meet the needs of EVERY student EVERYDAY. All would be sufficiently challenged and none would be left behind.

Dream on. :)

Real classroom needs are not easy to meet (which is why we at Mathnasium respect teachers so much).

A class of 24 math students means 24 unique math backgrounds, learning styles & appetites for taking on new content.

However, each of these 24 math students most likely falls into one of these three categories. In fact, you probably did too when you were in school!

By the end of this article you will know exactly which of the three student types fits your child, the frustrations she/he is dealing with and the SOLUTION!

STUDENT TYPE NUMBER 3: ALREADY MASTERED IT (YAWN)

STUDENT TYPE NUMBER 2: THEIR OWN WAY OF THINKING

If every student had the same math background, same learning style & same rate of absorbing new math material.

Imagine it! Every lesson would meet the needs of EVERY student EVERYDAY. All would be sufficiently challenged and none would be left behind.

Dream on. :)
