Milk Before Meat, Addition Before Multiplication

Nov 2, 2021

If your student is biting off more than they can chew, they're setting themselves up for frustration. Because in math, sequence is everything. You can't build a solid math foundation by neglecting basic math and expecting to soar through the advanced stuff. At Mathnasium of Summerside, we teach math one. bite. at. a. time.

There's a reason we teach addition before multiplication. It's because multiplication wouldn't make sense without a primary understanding of addition. Similarly, verywellfamily says,

“Often, children develop math anxiety when they don’t master early math skills, and then are continually expected to learn additional math when they haven’t yet gained fundamental knowledge. Just as a solid building cannot be erected upon a shaky foundation, expecting a child to gain new math skills when they haven’t mastered the basics can lead to a lack of confidence and anxiety about math.”

Despite this, many students are learning math out of sequence. (Uh-oh) But, why? What's causing the sequence disruption?

  • Maybe the pace in their classroom is too fast
  • Maybe they've missed a lot of school due to illness or travel
  • Maybe they just didn't fully understand a preliminary math concept before the next one was introduced

Mathnasium of Summerside is ready to complete any partially-learned concepts your student may have, and in so doing, lead them to a brighter math future. We are helping students all over Ellerslie, Summerside, Allard, Walker Lakes, Aurora who attend nearby schools Ellerslie Campus, Ellerslie Primary, Corpus Christi Catholic /Junior High, Shauna May Seneca, Michael Strembitsky, Jan Reimer, Father Michael Mireau /Junior High , Father Michael Mireau /Junior High , Corpus Christi Catholic /Junior High , Ellerslie Campus.
