Math Essentials Online

Introduction


Educational research shows that the most effective way to learn math is through inquiry, discussion, and a willingness to take risks and make mistakes. For these characteristics to be present, students must feel like they’re genuinely part of a community of learners. But many classrooms struggle to live up to these aspirations due to overly large class sizes and the social pressures that go along with them.

Math Essentials Online is for students who want more out of math. We connect students with each other in a true learning environment, nurture their confidence, and help them rediscover the joy of math.

The list of math skills that students in Virginia must master is lengthy and demanding. In Math Essentials Online, we have developed a list of the essentials, but we also know that every student comes in with a different level of prior knowledge.

New students take a diagnostic test, and based on the results are matched together with a small cohort of up to six peers who have similar needs. The group’s pacing is customized so that every student is challenged, and nobody feels like the pace is too fast or too slow.

As students begin to achieve mastery of the core skills, Math Essentials Online provides them with opportunities to develop additional confidence through carefully selected math projects. Over time, students start to understand the “why” of learning math, and not just the “how”.

Classes are taught by our small team of experienced and supportive instructors who enjoy watching students develop their full potential. Curriculum is developed by our experienced teachers with advanced degrees in mathematics curriculum and instruction.
