WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE
1. We teach by Concept. This means that we teach more than just how to solve a math problem; we also teach why the problem is solved in this manner, and when to apply the concept. We believe that it is essential for a student to memorize basic facts and formulas, but the actual understanding comes from learning the concepts first, memorizing facts and formulas, and applying this to solving everyday life situations or word problems.
2. We are a mastery program. We want the student to understand each concept and be able to teach it back to demonstrate that mastery has been achieved. Math-U-See is structured with step-by-step procedures for introducing, practicing, mastering and reviewing concepts. This gives the parent clear understanding of when to move the student to the next lesson.
3. We are a complete K-12 skill-based, multi-sensory program. We use manipulatives from the Primer through Algebra 1 levels of Math-U-See, building each concept from place value through polynomials. We recognize that each student is unique and processes information differently. The more senses we can incorporate into our method of teaching, the more of these differences we can address. Also, the more senses we use, the more the student will be able to understand the materials and retain what he has learned.
