Math Project uses proven curriculum and a unique neoclassical model that enriches a student’s understanding of core math concepts. Students are motivated to achieve program’s high targets, that helps them adopt the attitude of excellence.

HOW WE TEACH

Established in 2010, Math Project’s pedagogical approach has been rigorous yet rewarding. The qualified teachers offer a friendly yet disciplined environment where lessons are tailored to match a student’s learning style. Math Project uses proven curriculum and a unique model that enriches a student’s understanding of core math concepts. Students are motivated to achieve the program’s high targets, that helps them adopt the attitude of excellence and become independent learners.

Math Project, with its dynamic learning programs, fills in any educational math gaps by implementing a strong understanding of foundational math concepts in students. These learning programs are customizable, tailored to each student’s learning needs and style. With this personalized approach, our students are able to excel at math, using their heightened math competency and confidence to compete in international math contests.

Math Project emphasizes skill development and automaticity of basic number sense, while presenting the children with challenging real world problems that allow our students’ creative side to thrive. Research has proven that learning mathematics through problem solving is the most efficient way for a person to develop lasting mathematical skills. It is also one of the best ways to prepare students to meet the challenges of the future as it develops critical thinking and reasoning.

In addition to onsite math learning, we also provide accessible, live and online sessions. Typically, our students are mastering skills two to three ahead of their class in school. In creating an environment conducive to our students’ learning experiences, parents themselves have witnessed their child’s improvement not only in math, but also overall academics, study habits, time management and work responsibilities.

TROUBLING STATISTICS

At Math Project, we understand that there is no one better suited to talk about our strengths than our lovely parents and students!

Canada: The Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) is an independent provincial agency funded by the Government of Ontario. EQAO’s mandate is to conduct province-wide tests at key points in every student’s education and report the results to educators, parents and the public. EQAO measures students’ achievement in reading, writing, and mathematics in relation to Ontario Curriculum expectations. A standardized test from the Education Quality and Assessment Office (EQAO) in 2015-2016 revealed that half of Ontario grade 6 students failed to meet the provincial standards in math. The report also established that student performance in Ontario has been steadily declining since the 2009-2010 school year after the advent of the ‘Discovery Math’ curriculum.

U.S.A: The picture on the south side of the border (i.e. USA) appears to be bleaker. More than half a million 15-year-olds around the world took the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA for 72 OECD countries in 2015. The US ranking fell from 28th to 35th in math when looking at a comparable sample of countries that participated in the PISA exam in both 2012 (the last time the test was administered) and 2015. A more important finding was that the US performed poorer than the math average in the OECD.

Paulina graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics and York University with a Bachelor of Education. Alongside her working on a Master of Education, she tutors at Math Project and creates engaging lessons and assessments, motivating her students to strive for success in everything they do.

Bhumi
Math Project Teacher

Having graduated from the University of Toronto with a HBSc recently, Bhumi works one-on-one with high school students to help develop their foundational math skills. At Math Project, she creates lessons to help them ace math and teaches concepts beyond their high school curriculum to prepare them for post-secondary education.

Roman
Math Project Teacher

At Math Project, Roman guides high school and middle school students through the learning of fundamental mathematical concepts. With a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Toronto, he has demonstrated a high level of thinking in many subject areas. Understanding that practice is essential to many areas of life, he hopes to instil the notion that failure is an opportunity to do better.
