At Mathnasium, we help kids understand math by teaching the way that makes sense to them. Children who consistently attend sessions at our learning centers enjoy a transformative learning experience and make huge strides in the classroom.
Attitude: When math makes sense, kids develop a more positive attitude toward math.
Understanding: Mathnasium teaches for understanding, giving students the ability to succeed in any math environment. As Larry Martinek, Mathnasium’s Chief Instructional Officer notes, “It's pretty easy to forget things you memorize and near impossible to forget things you understand."
School Progress: When kids learn math in a way that they truly understand, they achieve greater success in the classroom.

Thank you! [My daughter] is having a total math turnaround this year at school. She hasn't scored under 92% on a single test - - last year I don't think she ever got above an 80%. I am very thankful for your program!... I think as a parent it’s been a valuable lesson for me that Mathnasium isn’t meant as a “quick fix” and to let your system work. It’s been a gradual increase over the past year and, really, we’ve all been a little surprised when test after test this year has been in the 90’s:)! She responds very well to the organization of her book and clear benchmarks she needs to reach to get a stamp, make a guess in the counting jar, get to the next level, etc.. Thanks. Mother of 4th grader
We're glad to see the positive progress made by [our son] over the last 3 months.
Thank you and your entire team for the guidance provided through the process. [He] is truly energized and motivated to come to Mathnasium. The approach you're adopting seem to have made a positive impact. Keep up the momentum. Thanks again. Father of 4th grader
"I think that it can be fun like the daily question and things like that. And I like the instructors." 5th grader
For you and your staff please receive a BIG THANK YOU! My daughter just got an A- in Math for the very first time in her life. She feels more confident in herself and math tests are not a worry time for her anymore. She likes to come to the center; she enjoys her time there a lot. She always feels better when your staff helps her with her homework's topics. I feel relieved because I found a great tutoring place. We feel more than welcome here.
Thank you again for all the hard work with my daughter. I am so proud of her improvement. Mother of 4th Grader
My daughter was accepted into the program for gifted and talented this year(2014-15)! ...[I]n 2nd grade, she got great numbers on the district test, and we applied for the [program], but didn’t get accepted. I asked her teacher about it, and she told me at that time, that she felt [her]math was not as strong as it needed to be. We started with your program, and 1 year later she was accepted. So I feel that is due to the results of your program. I watched [my daughter]become more excited and proud of math. Father of 3rd Grader
We really liked how Mathnaisum was flexible in working with our sons to help them prepare for math placement tests at their new school. Our sons really like math and wanted to refresh and/or learn a few new things in order to test into accelerated math classes. Mathnaisum created individualized development plans that which helped them reach their goals! Parent of 6th and 8th graders
We are so impressed with his progress. His math grade is headed in the right direction! We wanted to thank you for the impact you have had on our son this year. He has moved from a C to a B+ in math during this school year. His study habits and participation in class have both improved and this has all helped build his confidence in school. Parent of 6th grader
Our son has gotten a good handle on his math skills and is feeling comfortable in his pre-calc class and improved his math ACT score by 3 points. Parent of Hill- Murray Senior Parent of Hill- Murray Senior
Just want to let you know that my daughter loves Math now. Mother of 5th grader
We would like to say thank you to you and your staff. Our daughter increased her MCA score from 635 to 760 and 15% to 81% in Math!. She just started your program in February. Parents of 7th grader
Hi Deb and Crew, I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am for all you have done so far....(really after only 2 sessions of working out in math) Michael just took his math test for this last chapter and after months of receiving an "F" or at best a "D", HE RECEIVED AN A-!!!!!!!!!! Of course we are so very proud of him, but we want to thank you too! Sue W. mother of 7th grader
From crying to smiling - from quiet to yelling out math formulas for slope, the transition has been amazing, outstanding, and very beneficial. Thanks so much for helping my daughter believe in herself. Father of an 8th grade girl.
My daughter's improvement on her Math Olympiad Homework has grown by leaps and bound over the last couple of months! She is very proud of herself in regards to Math and I contribute that to Mathnasium. Thanks again, Randy G. father of 4th grader
She has done so well since she has been going to Mathnasium. Her teachers could not stop talking about how much improvement from January to the end of the year! Reva S., mother of 5th grade daughter who was moved to high math class.
Thank you for all of the help you have given me! The past year at Mathnasium has been a wonderful experience and I owe not only my B+ in math but also my 28 on the ACT to you! I've really enjoyed getting to know all the instructors and I really appreciate all the math guidance and help that I have received. It's made a huge difference in the way I understand math and enjoy it. High School Junior
Your math program has been an answer to our prayers. [My daughter] is receiving the help she needs and just received an A- in Pre-Calculus on her report card.
Thanks go out to you and your wonderful staff. Mother of High School Junior
To the Mathnasium of Woodbury Team,
We just wanted to thank you for the excellent service you have provided our family. In the last 10 months that our two daughters have attended Mathnasium, our third grader's Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) score went up 28 points placing her spring test score well within the range of a fifth grader. Our fifth grader's MAP test score went up 44 points prompting the school to move her ahead two levels in Math this coming fall. Since our family moved from out of state last summer, we had hoped Mathnasium would help our girls meet Minnesota grade-level requirements, but we have found that with your help they have far exceeded our expectations. Even more important, our girls love math class now and look forward to going to Mathnasium every week.
Thanks again and keep up the good work! Parents of 3rd and 5th graders
We wanted to let you know that our son has been selected by his school to be recognized as a 2012 Academic All-Star by the Center for Academic Excellence! He will be recognized at the 2012 Minnesota Gathering of Champions at the Mall of America in August. We are so happy at Mathnasium & really appreciate your patience with our son. It's been a long hard road for him, but this is really encouraging! …. the progress he's made since the beginning of the school year & now- is just amazing!
We really are so happy & impressed with your program! You & your staff have been so great! Thanks again for giving our son the chance to honestly really love math....because before we came to you guys, it really felt so hopeless...he just was so sad & felt like such a failure in math & now he really enjoys it- he still feels challenged & has a long way to go, but we're on our way!
I can't say enough how happy we are with Mathnasium! To see all the changes in our son from just the short amount of time we've been with everything....you guys are amazing! Thank you so much! Parents of 2nd grader
