The old school year in the books … both literally and figuratively … for students throughout Schertz and Cibolo Valley. Now, thoughts turn to summer fun, camps and time with friends.

It’s also the time many will start asking -- *are we ready for the next grade?* When it comes to math, this question is multi-part.

*Is my child ready for more difficult material? *

*Will they have to deal with STAAR and EOC tests in their new class?*

*Are they prepared for the workload and increased volume of homework that advanced classes, such as Algebra, etc., require?*

If you’re curious to know your child’s math skills, we invite you to explore Mathnasium’s interactive math quizzes to see how they perform in their grade-level math topics. Try taking the quiz yourself, you might be surprised at how much you remember from your school days.

**Elementary School **

At Mathnasium of Schertz, we know how vital learning math is in elementary school. It serves as the foundation for your child’s future math studies. To make it understandable, we take an orderly, logical approach teaching it to our students.

We begin with computation and problem solving using whole numbers, and then move on to computation and problem solving with rational numbers: fractions, decimals, percent, and negative numbers.

Beyond teaching students important math concepts and skills, our math instruction program helps students build number sense by explaining how numbers work. We call this numerical fluency … the ability for elementary school kids to effortlessly recall addition and subtraction facts. This is a valuable asset when they face new challenges in math.

**Middle School**

Middle school math builds upon elementary math’s foundation and focuses on explaining why mathematical rules work in order for children to learn and understand the rules, not just memorize them.

Many students start middle school with gaps in their mathematical foundation. At Mathnasium of Schertz, our experienced Schertz math tutors work with kids to fill in those gaps while still addressing their current needs.

Middle school is also where many students will start Algebra and Geometry. At Mathnasium of Schertz, our math instructors work with middle school kids to forge ahead in math classes. Students are given a “preview” of math concepts and lessons that they will encounter in future classes to help prepare them for high school, college, and beyond.
