Middle School Math Program

Solve the problem of how to help your student have a great relationship with math.

Our Approach

For some students, learning math is what makes them happy. For others, not so much. Either way, between explaining key concepts and helping them see how math applies to everyday life, teaching math to your student can be a challenge. You know that math can help them cultivate critical thinking skills and mental horsepower in ways no other subject can, and you want them to enjoy and feel confident about this part of their education—not like it’s a grind. Our unique Middle School Math Program is on your side.

In live math courses, students meet four times per week with a highly-trained math mentor. During these sessions, mentors lead students through simulations and modeling workshops that show them the history and meaning behind the math. They also facilitate practice of hands-on problem-solving to help students master each concept. Students who are more independent or advanced math learners can enroll in the self-paced version of any course for a streamlined experience, without added activities such as group projects and math readings, and move ahead as quickly as they like. Students in live and self-paced courses practice math in CK-12, our math learning platform.

In the process of taking these courses, students transform their relationship with math. They open their eyes to the invisible, ordered world of numbers all around them. Most of all, they develop a growth mindset that allows them to tackle new problems with a sense of comfort and confidence in their ability to learn new things, in math and life as a whole.

Please note that program and course descriptions are subject to change as we continuously improve our curriculum throughout the year. Some courses require subscriptions e.g., Adobe software or online magazines that may not be covered by partner schools. Required books and materials are noted in this document, in SIS, and on individual course pages.
