How Math Classrooms Have Changed; Could Mathnasium Be The New Model?
Aug 23, 2021
Try thinking back 150 years. Picture an old brick schoolhouse with a brass bell on top of the roof. Come inside, and see chalk and blackboards on the walls. Notice how children of different ages are grouped together. You’ve just entered a schoolhouse from the early 1870s…
- Your child’s teacher might have room and board provided by a family with a child who attends the school.
- Students only attend school for about 130 days out of the year. (nothing near our current 180 day school year)
- Attendance was low, just about 59% of the students actually came to school. This was often affected by harvest time and the inability to come to school due to poor weather.
- There was no transportation to and from school. Most kids walked to school, sometimes many miles.
And that folks was a typical school scenario for that time period. You can read more here.
Let’s fast forward to what a Mathnasium Learning centre looks like in 2021:
- Mathnasium uses specially-trained math instructors to teach and tutor kids in small groups.
- The students are taught in whatever learning style works best for them. (Visual, Kinesthetic, Social, Verbal, etc).
- Our students get to use a multitude of Math manipulatives. (Think Rubik’s Cubes, Tangrams, Color Tiles, Base 10 Blocks, Geoboards, Clock Dials, Fraction Pieces).
- Our students can learn in person or virtually. Thanks to technology, our students can be tutored from the comfort of their own homes.
- Parents can schedule when they want to have their sessions. We offer flexible hours and weekend appointments.
