Why Math @STEM54

There is no question that the new Common Core Math Standards (CCMS) are different. There is a need to assist students in learning and understanding the important concepts that build the mathematical foundations for future confidence and competence in the CCMS. Our research and findings indicate that the areas that require enrichment and practice are:


Enrichment Area 1
  • Basic Algorithms
  • Fractions
  • Decimals
  • Percent
  • Measurement & Geometry
Enrichment Area 2
  • Counting
  • Number Sense
  • Decomposing Numbers
  • Base10 Place Value
  • Mental Math


To accomplish these tasks our method consists of working with students on their current math coursework while scaffolding the fundamental concepts above that they have missed, thus moving students toward the conceptual understanding that is required for success in common core mathematics.


Early Childhood Math Development Preschool – Grade 3

The focus for these students are those items in Enrichment Area 1. It is during these important years that a strong foundation in counting and number sense must be developed.


Tutoring Services Grades 3 - 11

In grades 3-11 all items in Areas 1 and 2 are explored and practiced to fluency. These foundational concepts are integrated into the student’s current math coursework thus enhancing conceptual understanding.
