Math Way Program
Math Way to Excellence "programs" can be started within schools, afterschool programs, daycares and other educational establishments. Each program will be designed by identifying what the key areas are that need focusing on in math. Then the school will select the students that it wishes to incorporate into the program. The students will be given pretests to identify individual areas for improvement in math and to determine their math level. Lesson plans will be geared for the individual child, at their level, during the duration of the program. From here a curriculum will be given and followed. Every program will differ because it will be uniquely designed to each student, school, afterschool program, daycare and other educational establishment.
