Apr 15, 2020 | Westfield

The following is a Q&A for parents, guardians and students that explains the details for Mathnasium@Home, the two-way live interactive online platform for learning math: taught in real time by Mathnasium’s experienced math instructors over the Internet.


What is Mathnasium@home?

Mathnasium@home is our online learning platform through which our instructors provide face-to-face Math instruction in real-time over the Internet to our students. The learning experience is made to parallel how they would study in-person at our center through the use of video-conferencing and digital whiteboards. These are NOT pre-recorded lessons or videos. Rather our instructors are teaching your child during that live session

The program provides accountability and motivation through personal interaction with caring Mathnasium instructors.


Do students work on the same curriculum in Mathnasium@Home as they do at our center?

Yes, students will work on same customized study material that they would work on in-center from the comfort of their home. They will work with the instructors in real time, in the same way they work at our center.


What computers/tablets are supported for Mathnasium@home?

Any laptop or desktop with the Windows operating system or Mac with internet access can be used. Students may also use an iPad. Chromebooks are not recommended, but we can make do (potentially with a bit of extra troubleshooting) if that is the only device available to the student.


Do we need any other equipment?

Headphone, Mic and Webcam - In order to reduce distraction, we recommend students using any basic headphones with a built-in microphone, or the microphone built into their laptop/iPad. A webcam, usually built into the computer/iPad, is also recommended. These will help students to interact with instructors in a holistic manner while working on math problems.


How will students get help with homework and test preparations?

If your child has online homework, they can share their computer screen with us during their session through our web-based program in order to get assistance from instructors. If they have paper homework, they can upload a picture/scan of it to their Mathnasium folder to share with their instructors.


Can students use Mathnasium@home paired with in-person learning at our center?

Yes, our Mathnasium membership program allows for students to attend sessions both online and in-center at no additional cost.
