Arithmetic Solutions’ The “Skills” Workshop is for students who’d like to learn the tricks and short-cuts that will serve to make the mathematics on his or her grade level a bit easier. As with the Summer Bridge, this program is Common Core aligned and designed to develop problem-solving skills that will help your student be more successful when approaching Common Core Word Problems and performing specific calculations that are now required as part of a common core curriculum. Students will be introduced to and encouraged to memorize the Rules for Divisibility, Order of Operations, Rules of Exponents and much more. The program will consist of multiple Small-Group sessions for each grade level with not more than 4 students in each. Rules, important formulas, operations and theorems that should have been committed to memory years ago will be re-introduced and studied for understanding.
Although all online classes are conducted LIVE, each is recorded so that if your child misses a session he or she can always log on and watch the video of the missed class. We DO NOT offer “make-up” sessions. Missing a session is discouraged because students will not benefit from the luxury of asking questions while problems are being solved in real time.
If you are already an “active” Arithmetic Solutions member the The “Skills” Workshop is FREE to you. Due to the adverse affects School Closures, this past Spring, have had on the academic progress of students across the country we have reduced the regular cost of each workshop by more a minimum of 10% for ALL Non-Members who may want their children to acquire missed mathematical information. If you’d like to become a Monthly Member and pay the recurring monthly rate in lieu of the one time payment for the The “Skills” Workshop you may do so at anytime before classes begin July 20th.
