Oct 18, Launching MPT youtube channel

Math Plus Tutors officially launches  its youtube channel. This channel includes short lessons in Math, Science, and tips for parents. Our target is to provide short lessons for students looking for a quick look at how to solve a questions or parents needing a quick refresher to help their children. We will keep adding videos as time permits to grow our collection. As Math Plus Tutors team has many teachers with diverse backgrounds, we will be expanding our lessons to include as many topics as possible. 

Oct 10, Progress Reports Are Coming Home Soon

Progress reports are coming home soon. For most of our schools, progress reports reflect a first glance at how a student is performing in his/her classes.
What should parents watch for?
  1. Regular submission of assignments/projects
  2. Test marks and how their child is performing in the four main areas (Knowledge, Thinking-Inquiry, Application, Communication)
  3. Trends in grades being consistent
  4. Any missed work and it's effect on their total mark
As this is the first report parents receive it will give them an idea of areas of strength for their student's performance. It will also show them areas of need where they can provide some extra help for the student. At this point in time the grades are still pretty much able to adjust while the student receives help in a timely manner. While help provided after mid-term reports will always be harder as the student will be playing catch with his/her marks.

August 26, Get Ready for 2018-2019 School Year

As the summer holiday folds its last page, many of us are wondering what to do? Should we go away on last minute vacation? Sleep in for the last few days? Go for back to school shopping? Many questions, and plenty of spontaneous ideas. My best advice to you is to ask yourself this question: Am I ready for school? If the answer is yes then you can afford to spend your last week on relaxing and leisure activities. If not, then better get yourself ready first then relax/enjoy whatever time left. 
So, what do you need to get yourself ready?
  • Work on getting used to your school day routine (sleep early, rise early)
  • Get your school registration done
  • Check your time table and see if it needs any adjustments then act on it
  • Get your school supplies, your room, desk, and locker in order
  • Plan your daily routine based on your course load
  • Check out extra curricular activities/ work to see how to fit within your schedule

De-Stigmatizing Math Desperately Needed

For the second year in a row EQAO Math results show that 50% of all grade 6 students did not meet the provincial standards. Grade 3 Math results declined to 62% from 63% in 2016. Math curriculum, teaching methods and resources need to be critiqued and upgraded to improve students' comprehension of the subject matter. Hands-on activities, memorization of basic rules along side plain-language resources are desperately needed to de-stigmatize Math!

March 28, 2017: MATH PLUS JUNIOR MAKING PROGRESS
As a provider of tutoring services for high school and post-secondary education we weren't sure how our Math Plus Junior will be received in the community. As the program started; we got a number of inquiries regarding math help. Today we provide not only math help for the junior grades but also reading and writing in both English and French. Students enrolled in our program are making gains every day in their academics and self-esteem. It is heart-warming to see the progress they make day in and day out. That itself is our biggest achievement! To learn more about Math Plus Junior click here.

 

Feb 13, 2017: PUTTING THE RIGHT FOOT FORWARD
As the school year rolls on you start to learn new material in each subject and your binders accumulate more and more lessons. How can you make the best of your school and study time is what matters the most. You need to get organized from day one; have all your notes in one binder/notebook. Use a calendar to keep track of important dates through your term. Review your notes, solved problems and practice relevant questions on regular basis. Don't wait till last minute before your test/exam and don't cram. Cramming will put a lot of stress on you and won't help you on the long run. 

 

Feb 2, 2017: What's Next? Now that exams are over for the first school term. It's time you take a few minutes to think what you learned during that term? What are your areas of strengths and areas of need? What went well and what will you do different going on to term two. Learning from the experience that we go through is our best recipe to improve our performance. If waiting till last minute to work on your assignments was stressful, then you need to do it on time. Not paying attention to your marks/grades in the beginning cost you some dear marks; then avoid that. School is not only a place where you learn subjects; it's also a place for developing life and social skills that you will need for life. Make the most out of your time there! Enjoy!

Sept 19, 2016: How to get better at math?
A question many of us seek an answer to. Math is a subject that many of us look upon as a tough nut. Our own experience in elementary and high school will reflect on our feelings towards it and transfer to our children. The fact of the matter is, when it comes to math there is a clear answer to every question. It's a black and white subject based solely on facts and concrete information. Opinions and the whole grey area has nothing to do with solving a problem. So, you can count on it as one of the subjects that you can guarantee your mark. The question now is how to excel in math? Math relies on a systematic approach, solid information, and a number of well known/learned facts. Once you have all the above elements you will be able to navigate math without much difficulty. Here's a link to a nice article that will give you a few ideas on How to Learn Math?
