MathWiz for Elementary

Description:

MathWiz for Elementary courses broadens students' understanding of challenging concepts in a manner that enriches their investigative and reasoning skills. In this course, the study of numbers and their operations will be explored through interesting word problems and unique real-world applications. Student progress is strengthened through homework, quizzes, tests, and a cumulative final exam to reinforce their knowledge. 

Our Math courses adhere to the Common Core and Singapore Math Curriculums. Students will sharpen their math skills to have a fundamental knowledge of Pre-Algebra concepts. As a result, they will be highly prepared for middle and high school math courses and national standardized tests, including MCA, MAP, Aspire ACT, and Pre PSAT examinations.

MathWiz courses are offered in-person or online. Online courses offered by Academic Excellence deliver live instructions. Students will experience engaging and personalized learning and be supported by resources like videos, polls, online quizzes, notes, and practice problems. Our programs will use breakout sessions to facilitate student learning and engagement. Students will work closely with instructors to prepare for chapter exams and cumulative finals. 

Academic Excellence has plenty of teaching experience in both formats (In-person and Online) and is trained to deliver high-quality instruction to every student. Students will have an engaging and personalized learning experience supported by excellent instructors and technical teams. 

The classes will be offered online if the campus is closed due to unforeseen emergencies.
