High-impact problem solving
We specialize in open-ended applied math problems, aka ‘math word problems’ with multiple possible solutions. Why? American students struggle with complex math problems.
MathTreks’ integrates the research of leading scholars into a comprehensive approach for developing problem-solvers. Every session is designed around mathematics Professor George Polya’s framework for problem-solving, psychology Professor Carol Dweck’s approach to cultivating positive mindsets, math education Professor Jo Boaler’s insights on task designs that encourage deep thinking, and education science Professor John Hattie’s research on effective practices for learning math.
