With summer in full swing, most kids won’t spend much time thinking about math. As a result, their skills can deteriorate over the long summer break to the point where they fall behind when the next school year starts. Mathnasium of New Haven, in Woodbridge, Connecticut, suggests taking advantage of summer math programs to ease your child’s transition into the next school year.
Summer Math Programs Can Help Maintain Your Child’s Math Skills
According to a Johns Hopkins University study, kids can lose up to two months’ worth of math knowledge over summer break in a phenomenon called “summer slide.” Because much of mathematics education is built on previously learned concepts, this summer learning loss can have a cumulative effect that builds throughout a child’s education.
To prevent summer slide, experts recommend enrolling your child in summer math programs such as the ones offered at Mathnasium of New Haven. While many Mathnasium customers seek out year-round tutoring at the Mathnasium learning center, they also offer summer-only tutoring services for parents who are specifically concerned about the loss of learning over the summer.
Mathnasium refers to its most intensive summer math programs as “power math workouts.” These are full summer programs designed to keep your child’s study skills strong for the next school year and prepare them for what they’ll be learning next. Mathnasium also offers hourly enrollment packages for summer for those parents who want to give their child more modest math help over the summer.
All of Mathnasium of New Haven’s programs are led by professional, expert math tutors who are trained in the well-respected “Mathnasium Method.” And Mathnasium tutors tailor their programs to your child’s needs with an individual skills assessment and a customized learning plan designed to help your child achieve measurable progress.
