math-tutoring-2Did you know about Math…?
A 2008 study on international benchmarks in mathematics found that out of the industrialized OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) countries, U.S. fourth graders performed at a level of math proficiency 9% higher than the average while U.S. eighth graders dropped to 2% below the average (Phillips, American Institutes for Research 2008).

math-tutoring-3This progressive drop in math proficiency, however, is not across the board for all students. There are many students who continue to maintain their above average proficiency in math throughout their middle and high school years. This has led to a growing gap between mathematics ability levels in high school students: some students in public high schools have the ability to skip up to three grades in math, whereas some students are held back one year. In comparison, most public high schools do not allow students to skip grades in subjects such as English or History.

The comparison shows similar results even at the upper-echelon of performers:

“Looking only at the top 5 percent of test-takers [on the 2003 TIMSS examination], American fourth-graders beat the average of wealthy nations by 13 percentage points. By the eighth grade, however, the tables have turned, with America’s brightest students falling 10 percentage points behind their foreign peers. If we carry this comparison to the final year of high school using the 1998 12th-grade TIMSS results (the most recent available), we discover that America’s top students placed last in combined science and math achievement among all the industrialized nations for which data were available.”(Coulson, Education Report 2005)

These results indicate that American fourth-graders have mathematical capabilities well above those from the average industrialized countries, while performance and interest levels in mathematics drop below the average as results are conducted for students of higher grade levels.

We believe there are some key lessons to be learned from such alarming statistics:

  • Fourth grade is a key milestone in ensuring our children maintain their trajectory in math proficiency
  • Middle and High School teachers must teach a class of students with widely varying math proficiency (one class, one curriculum, and in some cases, up to 2-3 year variance in math proficiency levels)
  • Many students tend to lose focus in mathematics particularly later in high school
  • There still exists a certain social “stigma” among middle and high school students about being “good in math”
  • At a certain point for most parents, math homework exceeds the parents’ understanding of mathematics (how many parents can effectively help with their children’s calculus homework?)
  • Even our brightest math students are being affected by these trends

 

Ivy Bridge Academy’s Math Tutoring, Math SAT Prep, and Math Camps in Alpharetta | Johns Creek | Suwanee provide an interactive learning environment that is fun, challenging and educational.
Our goal is to promote and maintain the students’ interest in mathematics, prepare them for the Math SAT and Math Advanced Placement tests, challenge the brightest with new interesting math concepts, and offer an interactive, fun, learning environment for math…and of course, to help with their math homework!
