In November of 2014, the world got a real treat. Carol Dweck was featured on TED talks and gave an eye-opening lecture about something we hadn't heard of yet.... she called it a "Growth Mindset". 8 years and nearly 13,000,000 views la..
Most kids spell Summertime like this: NO MORE HOMEWORK.
Summertime is a break from tests, a break from worksheets, and according to 37% of kids 13-17, a break from their least favorite subject.... math.
But it's not as simple as just hating math. According to Larry Martinek, the founder of Mathnasium, kids hate something entirely different.
"Children don't hate math. What they hate is being confused, intimidated, and embarrassed by math. With understanding comes passion, and with passion comes growth- a treasure unlocked."
So rather than avoiding math all summer (which only makes students forget what they've previously learned) Let's do something new.... something like Mathnasium.
Mathnasium of Thousand Oaks will keep your child's math skills fresh and thriving throughout the summer months. Here's how we do it:
1. We approach math education in an engaging way called "The Mathnasium Method". You can read all about the Mathnasium Method here.
2. We connect with our students by teaching math in a multitude of ways (Kinesthetic, Auditory, Hands-on, Etc).
3. We keep kids motivated by offering impressive incentives from our Rewards collection. Seriously, take a look at the Rewards cabinet. It's on point.
When kids keep practicing math through the summer, they gain the confidence needed to excel in their math classes this fall. Creating student confidence is something kids from all over Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Moorpark, Santa Rosa Valley are experiencing. One parent noted:
"Mathnasium of Thousand Oaks has given my daughter confidence! She is doing better than she ever has in her math class at school. Thank you!" -J. M.
