Corrective Mathematics

Corrective Mathematics is a series of four modules designed to teach basic mathematics skills: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Corrective Mathematics is for students in years three through eight who have not yet mastered advanced addition, subtraction, multiplication, and/or division skills but who have mastered basic counting and symbol identification skills normally taught in years one and two. It ensures that students will learn to work mathematics problems accurately and confidently.

Connecting Maths Concepts Level A (For Year 1 kids)

If your child is ready to begin learning maths for the first time, we have a tuition program called, "Connecting Maths Concepts." Level A (120 Lessons), is suitable for Year 1 students or even for some kindergarten kids.

  • Problem Solving
  • Applications of Maths: Money, Measurement, Estimation

Connecting Maths Concepts Level B (For Year 2 Kids)

Level B (120 Lessons), is suitable for Year 2 students or even for some bright Year 1 kids.

Kids learn:

  • Place Value for 2-digit and 3-digit numerals
  • Number Families for addition and subtraction
  • Facts for addition and subtraction
  • Number Line
  • Measurement: length, time (calendar), time (clock)
  • Column Addition: No carrying, carrying
  • Column Subtraction: No borrowing, borrowing

  • Solve division story problems.
  • Discriminate among addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division story problems.

Basic Fractions - 55 Lessons

The main skills taught are:
  • Writing fractions from pictures and drawing pictures of fractions
  • Writing whole numbers as fractions
  • Adding and subtracting fractions with a common denominator
  • Changing mixed numbers to fractions
  • Adding, subtracting, and multiplying fractions and mixed numbers
  • Multiplying fractions
  • Multiplying by one or a fraction version of one
  • Making sides equal
  • Changing a number into one

A typical lesson consists of a small amount of new material and practice exercises that require students to apply much of the previously taught content.

Tuition Details

Before starting, your child will take one of the Placement Tests. Results will show which module (Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication or Division) your child is ready for.

Later modules build on skills presented in the earlier modules. The Division module requires students to discriminate and solve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division story problems. However, all students need not start with Addition. For instance, a student who is proficient in addition and subtraction would start with the Multiplication module and then be taught the Division module.

Some kids may be accelerated through the program, skipping many lessons.

Your child can work with the teacher in a one-to-one learning situation, or within a small group.

Drop your child off before school for a great start to the day. Have your child come here again after school and pick him or her up after work. Our address is 18 Thornton Place in Melville, Hamilton.
