Trimathlon Event at Mathnasium of Palatine Nov 2016
This annual math competition was a big hit with more than anticipated participants calling to register until the last day. The students participating were great sports and extremely smart. Two of the students went on to compete in the national tie-breaker. In all, one would have though we were having a party instead of a competition, going by the turnout and enthusiasm.

Summer Math Learning Keeps Students on Track for Success
By Damaris | Added May 13, 2016
Incorporating consistent, enjoyable, and meaningful opportunities for math learning into your family’s summer agenda could benefit your kids long after they bid summer break a fond farewell.
The reason: summer learning loss (or the “summer slide”). This refers to the loss of skills all students experience when they don’t participate in educational activities over summer vacation. In fact, summer learning loss has been extensively documented in studies dating as far back as 1906! According to researchers at Johns Hopkins University, math proficiency is particularly susceptible to the summer slide, with students losing “about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months.”
Additionally, a study conducted by the RAND Corporation states that summer learning loss is cumulative and can have far-reaching effects on a student’s long-term academic success. The good news is that it’s possible to stop the summer slide in its tracks and help your kids retain concepts they learned throughout the school year. The RAND Corporation report notes the advantages of attending summer programs and embracing summer learning opportunities, adding that “Programming needs to be high-quality, and students need to enroll and attend regularly.”
The fact is, summer presents valuable and often overlooked chances for kids to dig deep and explore concepts not necessarily covered in school while learning at their own pace. With regular school year pressures on hold, summer could be the season your child discovers how fun learning math can be! To get the most out of summer math learning, pick a program that…
- Ramps up the fun factor… while ensuring that kids make progress. Summer break was made for fun and frolic, so do your child a favor and pick a summer math program that specializes in creative, effective ways to teach math; really makes concepts come alive; and allows your family to balance math learning with non-academic summer pursuits.
- Provides individualized instruction in a comfortable, stress free environment.Summer is the time to break free of the constraints and limitations of a traditional classroom environment. Whether your child is far behind, performing at grade level, or in need of an extra challenge, a high quality math program meets your child where they are and helps them get to where they want to be—with a smile!
- Emphasizes regular attendance and goal setting. Consistent learning over time is key to staving off the summer slide! A solid summer math program will help you and your child pinpoint learning goals and develop a steady plan of action to ensure progress without causing burnout.
- Keeps you in the loop. Program administrators should be enthusiastic communicators eager to provide you with regular updates about your child’s progress.
Committing to the right summer math program can help your child start the next school year on the right foot and gain long lasting confidence and a love of learning along the way. Have a great summer!

Participated in Hunting Ridge Elementary School's Hawks Run
Mathnasium of Palatine had a great run at the Hunting Ridge Elementary Hawks Run on 19th September 2015. Kids were excited to play our math games after running the 3K, which worked out well since they had more blood pumping through their brains to compute faster. Parents meanwhile, had the opportunity to get to know more about our math enrichment and regular programs. A fun-filled exciting morning that we were honored and thrilled to participate in.
STEM Event at Pleasant Hill Elementary School
In November 2014, we set up a booth at the Pleasant Hill Elementary School. Kids loved the math games, math tricks and math gifts we gave away. It was encouraging to see students with so much engagement and interest in math. The math games especially involving mental calculations were a hit. We hope to repeat this excitement in more math events.
In October 2014, we held a Trimathlon Event in the center.
Modeled after a triathlon, the TriMathlon allows kids to test their level of mental fitness by solving math problems in an atmosphere that is festive, where every child receives a gift just for participating, and earns money for local schools!
Pi-Day Friday at Mathnasium Palatine
Saturday, March 14 was not just any ordinary Pi Day. This year, celebrated Super Pi Day which happens once a century! We had a rip-roaring time with students and their friends enjoying an evening of pi-themed fun, including food, activities, and prizes! We had math themed bingo, memorizing pi numbers, and many more math related games including a muscial chair round based on the pi song. Thanks for all the parents and kids who made this such a memorable event. We loved that kids departed asking, " When is the next math night"?
