Inspiring Independent Thinkers and Master Problem Solvers
With Math Edge, Sylvan of Burlington's math mastery program for grades 1–8, a few hours a week are all it takes to give your child an edge in math. A favourite among kids, Math Edge uses a variety of brain-boosting activities to help your child solve problems in cool and engaging ways. (Say goodbye to mind numbing drills!)
With each Sylvan Edge lesson, your son or daughter develops problem solving skills, as well as math proficiency, speed and accuracy. You’ll love seeing your child learn to think independently, build math confidence and have a lot of fun.
Having a good math foundation is so important for developing higher-level thinking skills and for being successful in science and technology. Our Math Edge curriculum aligns with college and career readiness standards as well as what’s being directly taught in school, so you can rest easy knowing what your child learns at our centre in Burlington will make an impact in the classroom and far beyond.
Here are just a few reasons your child—and you—will love Math Edge:
It’s convenient and fun! You sign your child up for two one-hour sessions per week at our centre in Burlington, choosing the days that work best for your family’s busy schedule. Your child is welcome to sign up with friends (great camaraderie for the kids, easier carpooling for you). Each session, your child completes brain-boosting activities that grow more challenging with every assignment. Math Edge follows a proven, five-step approach:
We flex your child’s thinking skills as he or she works through a series of activities on each topic. This approach ensures your child truly understands and can apply math concepts, while building his or her math confidence.
Math Edge offers a low stress environment. Your child works independently at his or her own pace, while our math tutors offer coaching and encouragement. As your child progresses, our math tutors grade your child’s assignments, sharing personal feedback and helping your child understand errors.
During each session, your child takes a break from individual work and collaborates with a small group of kids to tackle math puzzles, fun brainteasers and other math proficiency challenges. The kids love it, and from a learning perspective, it ensures a deeper understanding of math concepts.
The math tutors at our centre in Burlington use Sylvan’s proven motivational system to bring out the best in your child. Your son or daughter earns rewards for working hard and achieving goals, including individual and group rewards. When your child achieves individual milestones, our math tutors recognize your child with Certificates of Achievement. (Make room on the fridge for some big honours!) With each session, you’ll love seeing your child’s math confidence, skills, and achievements grow.
