Gideon Math Program
The Gideon Math program is designed to achieve mastery of computational skills. Mastery equals confidence, speed, and accuracy. View the Gideon Math Site.
The program consists of over 160 weekly booklets arranged sequentially from beginning number sense through high school geometry.
Calculation skills are presented in a step-by-step manner. Each concept is practiced until real mastery is achieved. The student is required to not merely understand how to perform an operation, but rather must “own” or internalize each new concept before advancement.
Oral drills complement the daily, written work to facilitate memorization of the basic math facts. Finger counting, reliance on calculators, and other crutches make success in high school and college math very difficult.
Gideon also addresses grade level word problems and standardized testing preparation with each child. We want our students to be ready and confident.
Our goal at Gideon is to help your child build solid learning skills, disciplined study habits, and the confidence to succeed in school….and beyond.
