Online math lessons for middle school students
Grade 5 - 9
In our approach to learning, we aim to be creative, bold, free-thinking and rigorous.
Many students approaching middle school experience certain gaps in their mathematical foundation. Our middle school program is aimed at helping students develop core mathematical skills in order to develop fluency in algebra and geometry.
Our curriculum reveals each student’s full potential, and our online center is on standby to connect eager students with inspiring peers and accomplished tutors.
Our program inspires opportunities for dialogue so that each student’s voice is heard in an environment specifically tailored to their needs. Above all, we seek to serve each student holistically. Our classes can help students hone their skills in a speciality area, from algebra and number theory to discrete mathematics and combinatorics.
Our middle and high school curriculums are taught by qualified, trained, and experienced staff. Each instructor’s passion about their subject matter is matched only by their motivation and energy to see every student in their care succeed.
Mathematical thinking is a whole way of looking at things, of stripping them down to their numerical, structural, or logical essentials, and of analyzing the underlying patterns.
We know how crucial it is to create a positive learning environment during an online class.
Our class size is an average of 5 students with an expert teacher leading an interactive lesson. All classes are accompanied by interactive activities: crossword puzzles, pair matching games, bingo games, jigsaw puzzles, memory games, and many more.
All our teachers have professional backgrounds in mathematics and are highly passionate about the subject. They go through extensive training to teach according to our specific methodology and curriculum.
Frequently asked questions
What topics are covered in the OMC Middle School Math Program?
Our classes can help students hone their skills in a specialty area, from algebra and number theory to discrete mathematics and combinatorics.
Is the OMC curriculum right for my child?
We ensure that each child is placed in an environment best suited to their academic level. Free diagnostic tests help us discover each child’s math experience, and the specific gaps in their knowledge. These tests help determine the best level for a student to begin within the OMC curriculum.
What is the average class size?
On average, there are five students in each classroom. With two difficulty levels per grade, we’re able to ensure that each child is placed in a class that is both appropriately challenging and academically nurturing.
What is expected when joining an online classroom?
Following our unique curriculum and methodology, the OMC teacher conducts a live interactive online lesson in a five-student Zoom classroom. All students and teachers can see and hear each other during the classes.
How long are the online classes?
Class duration varies depending on a student’s age and math level. For example, we mix activities with manipulatives (tools for active learning) to keep younger students engaged visually and mentally. Therefore, such a lesson might be longer than one for older students.
What about homework?
We strongly encourage parents not to do the work for their children. Homework helps students improve their problem-solving skills and get a better understanding of the class material. We believe this comprehension is more important than getting good grades.
Who are your teachers?
Our teachers have backgrounds in mathematics and are highly passionate about the subject. They go through extensive training to teach according to our specific methodology and curriculum.
