Every student has a Math Number- the number representation of the skills they have MASTERY* of.
Every class has a Math Number associated with it that will ENSURE a successful experience in that class.
It is very common for a student to eventually end up in a math class in which it is impossible for them to have a successful experience, NO MATTER HOW HARD THEY TRY, simply because they haven’t MASTERED the foundational skills required to support the new skills they’re being expected to learn.
While it is practically impossible to thrive in a math class when you don’t have the Math Number associated with guaranteed success in that class, it IS entirely possible to get your Math Number higher.
Math For Keeps is the GUARANTEED program for PRACTICING math in a way that gets your Math Number higher.
Come to one of our FREE Math Talk nights to get your Math Number and hear more about this tried-and-true method for learning Math…For Keeps.
*NOTE: this is NOT the number of skills a student has been exposed to; being shown something, and being given the opportunity, instruction and guidance to practice that something to MASTERY are entirely different things.
A word from a MFK graduate
Lacie is a phenomenal math teacher. Studying math with her is fun and everything I do with her is always challenging but do-able at the same time. Before I worked with Lacie, I was struggling in certain fundamental concepts that wouldn’t let me progress. After working with Lacie, things were a lot more solid in my mind. When I walked into my classroom on the first day of high school, I felt like I already knew what was going on, which was great because it was one less thing I had to worry about. - Margaret Azarmehr, Algebra student who did MFK for 2 months. Lacie does not just help with math homework, she actually has a different way of approaching the material, so essentially it is like a turbo reteach of things your student has probably covered in another class but didn’t get. She has broken down all math components into small “do-able” pieces. Each week, students work on those small pieces, and then by the end of the month, your student will have put the small pieces back together in such a way that they really understand why they are doing what they are doing, will have improved and faster recall for some basic facts, and will be able to use those skills other environments. Margaret responded well to Lacie’s methodology. It provided a fabulous “math bridge” from Margaret’s middle school specializing in dyslexia to the college prep high school she got accepted into. Besides, Lacie is cool, so studying math with her is cool. How else could I have gotten my 13 year old to agree to math tutoring twice a week in the hottest summer Austin has ever had? Margaret actually looks forward to working Lacie! Now in high school, she is not just passing math, but she is making a 96 in Algebra I. In fact, this is her best and most solid subject! Who knows, maybe my girl could make it into an AP math class…. - Heather Azarmehr, parent of Algebra student who did MFK for 2 months.
