Optiminds’ Math Strategies Training

Optiminds offers Math Strategies training for students ranging from kindergarten through high school.

Our focus is on helping students process critical information and learn how to retain it. We utilize techniques designed to stimulate targeted areas of the brain, including:

  •     Computerized drills
  •     Mental exercises
  •     Visualizations
  •     Cause and effect
  •     Sequencing
  •     Bloom’s Taxonomy
  •     Learning to answer the question “Why?”

A key part of this training focuses on logical thinking skills—an important foundational skill of math.

Learning mathematics is a highly sequential process. If you can grasp a certain concept, fact, or procedure, you then will be able to grasp others that come later, which depend upon it. For example, to understand fractions you must first understand division. To understand simple equations in algebra requires that you understand fractions. Solving “word problems” requires knowing how to set up and manipulate equations, etc. Students are also taught time concepts, numerical reasoning and strategies for solving story problems.
