THE NEED

“Half of all Grade 6 students in Ontario did not meet the provincial math standard in 2016, continuing a steady decline in test scores over the past five years. The Grade 3 math results showed a decline too, with 63 per cent of students meeting the provincial standard, compared to 68 per cent in 2012. Grade 9 math results were steady compared to 2012, with 83 per cent of those in the academic math course meeting the standard and 45 per cent in the applied course meeting it. The previous education minister has said the persistently low scores in the applied program needed to be addressed.” The Canadian Press, August 31, 2016

 

OUR EXPERIENCE

High school students participating in our programs who show signs of struggle with mathematics have a history of struggle in elementary grades as well. To solve the problem, you need to address the root cause preferably from the beginning. Waiting till students reach secondary school level will only escalate the problem. It may also lead many of them to switch to the applied strand of math that will limit their choices in post-secondary education and where much lower results are experienced.

 

OUR VISION

By extending our programs to include elementary grades we are preparing the ground for the students to improve their math skills from an early age. Thus, gain the confidence as they grow up and perform better in subsequent years and eventually succeed in higher math expectations in high school and post-secondary education.

Math Plus Junior is a program for grades (1-6) with two sessions a week in math. Each session has 45 minutes of instructions, practice, and applications. This program is offered in either one-on-one or small group sessions. You have the choice to sign up in either one.
