EXPLORE THE LANGUAGE OF OUR UNIVERSE
Math and physics have a bad reputation among students, but they shouldn't. The problem is how these topics are traditionally taught. Memorize a formula.....plug in some numbers.....there is no magic in that. Our universe speaks one language: mathematics. When you see math in all things, passion ignites.
BUILDING MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS BY MASTERY OF MATH AND PHYSICS
COMPASSION, NOT SHAME
We remember how intimidating math can be, and how it can make you feel. The struggle is real. Whether you're in elementary school or high school or beyond, we will meet you at exactly your level.
KNOWLEDGE, NOT MEMORIZATION
Memorizing a formula is ok. Deriving a formula is better. Seeing math in everything is best. We derive every formula we use, then show how the formula models nature. This is where the magic happens.
INSPIRATION, NOT INTIMIDATION
Wonder why your student isn't motivated? It's because they aren't inspired. By leading with inspiration, you tap into their superpower. Motivation and grades follow naturally.
CONFIDENCE IS KING
There is no such thing as being "bad at math." Anyone struggling in math has had a bad experience. A mean teacher, embarrassed in front of the class, etc. Once this happens, the student DECIDES that they are bad at math. This is what we call the "math narrative".
Our specialty is re-writing the narrative by:
"This school year is different, however, learning is not about the place, it's about the journey. Let's make it fun!"
