A Summer Opportunity

Mar 31, 2021 | Redmond

It is no secret that many students are struggling due to school disruption during the pandemic. Standardized test scores are down[1], motivation levels are slipping worldwide[2,3], and even those earning A's may not be getting the depth of understanding they need for future courses.[4] Out of all topics, mathematics has been the most impacted.[5] As overwhelming as it may feel, this summer presents students the perfect opportunity to overcome any setbacks and gain that deeper knowledge. 

Typically, this is the time of year when we would start talking about how nearly three months without regular math practice can lead to learning loss. 

This year, students started behind due to shutdowns,[6] and without additional support, the gaps created are likely to cause future difficulty in class.

It is not an exaggeration to say that a student's experience in school can have lifelong effects. One study found that a student's math classroom experience can change their interest in pursuing STEM careers, with positive experiences correlating significantly with higher interest.[7] 

"My only regret is we didn't come here earlier! My then 5th grader was immediately convinced with their environment and teaching tricks and tips. They changed her perspective of Math from 'worried' to 'fun'."

According to their parents, 90% or more of Mathnasium's students see improvement in their attitude towards math, grades, and understanding.[8]

"Our two girls had an amazing time this last summer. The teachers truly made math fun for the kids and best of all, going back to school has been a breeze for them because they kept their last year skills sharp and got a head start on the new material."

— Tammy H., Mathnasium of Redmond Parent
