“If there is a 50-50 chance that something can go wrong, then 9 times out of ten it will.” – Paul Harvey
Without a doubt, math can quickly become one of the most frustrating and depressing subjects for children, even for those who appear to be doing quite well. For many it has always been the belief that you are either good at math or you are not. Nourishing Minds Tutoring believes in reshaping these beliefs and building new attitudes to math. We will take existing frustrations and develop a confidence you once believed impossible. And believe it or not, the Common Core State Standards can help. The benefit to the Common Core is that it teaches various ways to understand math concepts and year after year the standards build on from each other. Herein lies the problem. If your child struggles with one concept the problem is compounded over and over again.
Nourishing Minds Tutoring is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and helps children understand the math that they are doing. It is simply not good enough to memorize a concept, this is why children struggle. Whenever possible, we will bring math learning alive by having children complete hands-on, practical, engaging tasks, rather than completing worksheet after worksheet.
Key Mathematical Concepts Include:
- + , − , × , ÷
- Basic Facts
- Place Value
- Whole Numbers, Decimals, and Fractions
