Middle School Math Program
In Math Project’s middle school program, students master arithmetic and begin to understand how and why numbers relate. Our middle school curriculum builds upon junior school math’s foundation and focuses on critical thinking rather than memorizing formulas and solutions. This program introduces students to more abstract concepts: negative numbers, percentages, probabilities and decimals. Students are also introduced to complex word problems that require both logic and mathematical reasoning. Our middle school program provides students with enough drills to master thoroughly the facts needed to lay a foundation for high-school level math. Students who complete our middle school program are ready to tackle competitive entrance exams.
Middle School students are evaluated with a written and verbal assessment unique to Math Project. Based on the assessment results, we create a customized program designed to help close math learning gaps they may have from their junior years, and make it easier for them to get a head start when they’re ready for advanced math challenges.
