The Basic Math Program helps students learn basic math skills in three general categories: basic math facts, computation, and concepts & applications. The Basic Math Program encourages students to communicate in mathematical terms in all areas of instruction. Mastering these skills provides students with the math help they need for advancement to higher level math classes.
Basic Math Facts – Students learn and master basic single digit operations in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Our tutors provide the math help your child needs to develop accuracy and speed which translates into confidence and success as he or she progresses. These basic math skills provide the foundation for math comprehension that will lead to success as the student moves on to more complex math operations.
Computation – Core computation skills are learned in the areas of whole number operations, fractions, decimals, and at some levels, integers, percentages, and pre-algebraic expressions. With math help in these areas, your child is prepared to advance to the next levels quickly and successfully.
Concepts & Applications – This element of the program deals with concept formation, reasoning, and problem solving. The specific math skills areas learned include: numeration, fraction concepts, decimal concepts, estimating, basic measurement concepts, geometry measurement concepts, problem solving, exponents, graphics, probability and statistics, and ratios.
