The Mathnasium Method™
“Children don’t hate maths. They do hate being confused and intimidated by maths. With understanding comes passion and with passion comes growth – a treasure is unlocked.” -- Larry Martinek
For more than a decade, the Mathnasium Method™ has transformed the way children understand and appreciate maths. Larry Martinek, creator of the Mathnasium Method, has spent 40+ years designing, developing and refining this approach based on his extensive experience teaching maths to children. We build maths knowledge upon what they already know - this helps them learn quickly and boosts their confidence right away.
How It Works
Our proprietary method consists of three key components which are closely monitored and adjusted to address each child’s learning goals:
Assessments: Students start by taking a customised assessment which pinpoints their needs, allowing us to meet them where they are and take them where they need to go. These assessments continue throughout their Mathnasium instruction to ensure progress and skill retention.
Customised Learning Plans: We then design a customised learning plan for teaching the concepts the student needs to master and use a combination of proprietary materials and instruction techniques to ensure your child masters these concepts.
Specially Trained, Caring Instructors Who Teach: Mathnasium’s specially trained instructors implement the learning plan and work with each student to ensure they master the material. All teaching takes place during the Mathnasium session and we don’t assign homework.
The Mathnasium programme provides the foundation and support to succeed at each stage:
- Primary School: Building maths foundation, mastering computation and problem solving with whole and rational numbers and understanding number sense
- Secondary School: Continuing to build strong maths foundation, mastering “the how and why” (algebra readiness), helping with homework and filling in gaps needed
Our goal is to enhance your child’s maths skills, understanding of maths concepts and overall school performance. At the same time, we build confidence and help families see measurable progress.
Our year-round programme provides consistency and flexibility.
- Flexible attendance
- Year-round programme with memberships that can start at any time
Along with working through their customised learning plans, Mathnasium students receive homework help to solidify their understanding of concepts that are being covered in their current coursework.
