Outcomes

    1. In a few sessions, the student will be able to count to 100-septillion and will be able to interpret and encode very large and very small numbers. Example: The student will be able to understand the meaning of and will be able to write the number in this headline: "The asteroid contains diamonds worth 26.784 septillion dollars."
    2. Math Language Fluency is the ability to understand and decode and encode numbers in the news, school, in science, and everyday life (mills in property taxes, "a .7 mill tax hike", discounts, interest, taxes, penalties, debit, credit, rate, percentage, point 5, 1.2 million, fractions, etc.). Language fluency is very powerful and is the foundation for independent learning.
    3. Our sessions do not cover algebra, per se, but cover foundational concepts that form a framework for higher learning.
    4. New confidence and skills.
