Our Mission:

to help females learn the mathematics—and "numbers-related" disciplines—they need to achieve their academic and career goals.

Day of Remediation-Math

The Day of Remediation-Math is a daylong class designed to help participants acquire rapid and reflexive recall of the times tables.  Having such a command of the times tables is an essential component of the basic "numbers sense" people need to learn arithmetic, algebra, trigonometry, etc.

Participants spend the day focusing on related groups of times tables:  taking time quizzes, doing timed drills, playing Multiplication BINGO, and working on related mathematics exercises that reinforce the memory work.  (Cognitive psychologists call this elaborative rehearsal.). They not only learn certain invaluable math skills that have long eluded them (e.g., long division, reducing fractions to lowest terms, multiplying fractions with cross-cancelling, etc.); they also learn how important it is to construct and maintain a strong knowledge base of math facts and algorithms that is readily retrievable from long-term memory.

Attendance at the Day of Remediation-Math is a pre-requisite for most Helicon, Inc. courses and classes.

We're seeking space to conduct the Day of Remediation-Math; if you can help, please Contact Us.
