Coronavirus ended the school year early, and many students did not finish 6th grade math. It also looks like the virus will continue to disrupt education again this year.

If the student has unfinished learning from previous grade levels, the chance of becoming frustrated is likely. The available virtual learning may also not be enough to close gaps with 6th grade math.This also happens to be the time where many parents are not unable to help.

6^{th} grade math is a spring board to Algebra and high school math. It’s at this turning point when students begin using the skills taught in previous grades to make connections in Algebraic concepts.

Calculating Minds provides the math help needed to ensure 6th graders continue on the right path and maintain a love of math. We provide individualized attention and learning paths paced to your student. We use Singapore math methods to help 6th grade math students master a Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) progression.

We’re local Knoxville math teachers who know how to make learning fun and interactive.
