MathAltitude School of Mathematics, in its 10th year, is the only after-school and weekend math enrichment program offering comprehensive mathematical education for preschool to high school age students in Worcester. The program was designed to augment existing math curricula in local public and private schools and to provide additional means for parents to extend their children’s horizons. The MathAltitude curricula were created based on the most effective Russian and European teaching methodologies that allow learning mathematics in a systematic, structured, and logical way. Whether a child needs extra help or math enrichment, our classroom setting and group-lesson structure create an environment that encourages students to delve into the theory of each topic they study so that they come away with a thorough understanding of both the conceptual and practical aspects of the material. This innovative method inspires a lively exchange of ideas for solving difficult problems and friendly competition among students of similar age and ability.
