The Online Math Center (OMC) offers online math lessons for middle students (grades 5-9). Our classes can help students hone their skills in a specialty area, from algebra and number theory to discrete mathematics and combinatorics.
Many students approaching middle school experience certain gaps in their mathematical foundation. Our middle school program is aimed at helping students develop core mathematical skills in order to develop fluency in algebra and geometry.
Our curriculum reveals each student’s full potential, and our online center is on standby to connect eager students with inspiring peers and accomplished tutors.
Following our unique curriculum and methodology, the OMC teacher conducts a live interactive online lesson in a five-student Zoom classroom. All students and teachers can see and hear each other during the classes.
On average, there are five students in each classroom. With two difficulty levels per grade, we’re able to ensure that each child is placed in a class that is both appropriately challenging and academically nurturing.
We ensure that each child is placed in an environment best suited to their academic level. Free diagnostic tests help us discover each child’s math experience, and the specific gaps in their knowledge. These tests help determine the best level for a student to begin within the OMC curriculum.
Our program inspires opportunities for dialogue so that each student’s voice is heard in an environment specifically tailored to their needs. Above all, we seek to serve each student holistically. Our classes can help students hone their skills in a speciality area, from algebra and number theory to discrete mathematics and combinatorics.
Class duration varies depending on a student’s age and math level. For example, we mix activities with manipulatives (tools for active learning) to keep younger students engaged visually and mentally. Therefore, such a lesson might be longer than one for older students. The number of lessons per week depends on the grade and the plan you choose. If a student is studying both algebra and geometry the minimum hr/week is 3 hours (2+1) for grades 5-8 and 9-10 - 4 hours.
Our teachers have backgrounds in mathematics and are highly passionate about the subject. They go through extensive training to teach according to our specific methodology and curriculum.
