A student has difficulty remembering math facts and struggles with computation. They are overwhelmed by word problems and understanding new math concepts. They may be labeled with dyscalculia (a mathematics disorder).
A primary cause of math difficulties is an inability to create a mental image of the concepts underlying math processes. Individuals often attempt to memorize facts instead of being able to think, reason, and problem solve with numbers through the use of imagery.
Individuals of all ages may experience an inability to create a mental image of the concepts underlying math processes.
This causes weakness in:
Learning math family facts
Grasping mathematical relationships
Following proper mathematical operations
Solving word problems
Estimating numerical value
The Think Smart Visual Math Program improves the ability to image and verbalize the concepts underlying math processes. Concept and numerical imagery are integrated with language and applied to math computation and problem solving.
There is emphasis on both mathematical reasoning and mathematical computation. Math fundamentals are reintroduced to the student using math manipulatives and special exercises to stimulate concept and numerical imaging. As a result, individuals of all ages learn to do and enjoy math.
Our Think Smart Visual Math Program is administered by Specialized Private Math Tutors using tailored programs that target the specific needs of your child.
*Currently accepting primary through middle school math students.
