Summer STEM Camp
Avoid the Summer Slide with Mathnasium's Summer Program
Did you know that kids can actually lose math skills while school is out? Studies have shown that students can regress by up to two and a half months over the summer — a phenomenon known as “the summer slide.” Avoid the summer slide by having Mathnasium customize a program for your student to learn at the center, but also participate in the STEM based project! We prevent the summer slide, give kids an edge for the next school year, and we make it fun!
Our Summer Membership Includes:
Customized Power Math Programs: We’ll help you choose the Summer Power Math Program that’s right for your child: fractions, multiplication, problem solving, algebra readiness, geometry readiness, and more.
Flexible Scheduling: Bring your child to our center on the days and hours convenient for you! We’ll work with your vacation schedule. Mathnasium is open Monday - Thursday (2-7pm) & Sunday (1-5pm).
STEM Hour: All Mathnasium students are invited to join us for 1 Hour of STEM from 2-3pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There will be no instruction during this time, just all the STEM based projects / games you can handle for an hour with our amazing instructors. Stick around for another hour of instruction afterwards, which means two hours at Mathnasium these days! (Enjoy a nap, grocery shopping, get some work done, or whatever else you want parents)
Tuesday/Thursday STEM Hour activities include:
- MAKE Slime, Catapults, Rollercoaster, Bridges...... etc.
- BRAINSTORMING and brainstorming games.
- CREATIVE thinking and creative thinking games.
- CRITICAL thinking and critical thinking games.

My child already excels in math. Will Mathnasium address their needs?
Absolutely. Since Mathnasium is customized to the needs of each individual student, we can help advanced students stay engaged and stimulated by introducing them to more challenging math topics. More importantly, we can also help your child to develop even stronger numeric fluency and critical thinking skills, which are essential for continued success in math.
Why do children struggle with math?
Have you ever watched a foreign movie without subtitles? It can be confusing and frustrating because you don't understand the language! If your child is missing key math skills, this is exactly how they feel in math class!
In school, they treat kids the same because it is assumed that all kids learn the same way and at the same rate. The teachers are expected to cover vast amounts of material in a short period of time. If your child doesn't get a chance to master a skill for whatever reason – there is no time to give the necessary time and attention that they need. Teachers must move quickly to stay “on schedule." As a result, we see too many kids fall behind in math.
What happens next?
The class moves on! Here come multiplication facts, fractions, percentages, decimals, mixed numbers, exponents, ratios, x=?, divisibility rules, algebra, geometry, equations. It never slows down so your child can catch up! They feel overwhelmed, embarrassed, and all alone! They begin to expect and accept failure as the "new normal" and think "I'm just not good in math!" If they lose confidence in themselves, we typically see all of their other grades begin to suffer.
Is it any wonder why you have to fight with them to do their homework? With many kids, it is easier for them to fight you and not do the work than to put the effort into it only to see failure again. After a while, it just doesn't seem worth the effort for them.
Will a private one-on-one tutor work?
Unfortunately, in most cases a private tutor is a temporary fix for a long term problem. Private tutors only help children "survive" tonight's homework, but they don't address underlying issues. Private tutoring is not going to be a meaningful long term solution. Your child deserves to have that long-term impact in their math education.
How is Mathnasium different?
Great Question! The very first thing we do is give your child a skills assessment. It is both a written and oral assessment so that we can get a deep understanding of not only what they know, but how they think!
We sit down with them, put them at ease, and give them an assessment that doesn't feel too easy or too hard. Most importantly, we find out HOW THEY LEARN! Then we build their trust by giving them a few ideas and strategies that they can use immediately. We use the results to build a customized learning plan that targets skill gaps and quickly shows them success. In many cases "success" in math is something they have been craving!
Does Mathnasium Really Work?
Read our Parent Reviews
We get 100's of reviews that are glowing about how struggling students come alive after coming to Mathnasium. Their grades increase and their confidence skyrockets! Take a moment to read what your neighbors have to say about us.
Why is confidence in math important?
It's not just important, It's critical! Kids need to see that they can do the work so that they can feel confident! This fresh, new confidence will spill over to many other areas of your child's life. At this point you will start to see peace at home! You won't be having to fight with them to do homework. Not only will they have the confidence and the skills to attack it but they'll start bringing home better grades from school. How do we know this? Because we have seen it over and over again with hundreds of our students!
Is this one-on-one tutoring?
Another great question! Our instructors are not just average math tutors. We have brilliant, engaging, inspiring math experts that work one on one with your child. They make sure your child understands what to do. Then the instructor steps back and lets your child work independently to give them the time to process this new information without the pressure and stress of being watched. It also prevents a "learned helplessness" where the student feels that they need the instructor sitting in front of them all the time in order to be successful. [We can't be there for their math tests!]
Our instructors quickly come back after a minute or two to make sure they are doing the problems correctly, give them encouragement, and praise them for their efforts! If the student needs more math help we simply teach the lesson again in a different way without judgment or ridicule until they "get it." This enables your child to become a "confident, independent learner."
