At Mathnasium of Murphy-Plano, we know how vital learning math is in elementary school. It serves as the foundation for all your child’s future math studies. To make it understandable, we take our proven, time-tested, and logical approach to teaching it to your child.
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. (Interesting fact: In math, the word “rational” comes from the mathematical term “ratio.” It has nothing to do with being reasonable)
This foundation we give them is essential for pre-algebra and algebra, which they will encounter in middle school and high school.
Elementary school students work with our instructors in a unique combination of mental, verbal, visual, tactile, and written exercises. These do more than just meet State of Texas math standards, they surpass the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
Beyond teaching students important math concepts and skills, our math instruction program helps students build number sense by explaining how numbers work. As it progresses, children get more and more comfortable with numbers. 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 with math.
Customized Learning Plan
Each child is evaluated with a written and verbal assessment unique to Mathnasium. Based on your child’s assessment results, we create a custom program designed to focus on your child's individual need. This helps address educational gaps, if any, or establish the right starting point that makes it easier for them to jump ahead for new, advanced math challenges.
Additionally, we help kids understand their school homework, as well as help them prepare for school tests.
