Math / Science Studio

The Math/Science Studio offers Elementary School, Middle School and Academy students personalized assistance in Mathematics, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry, as well as Environmental Systems and Societies. Students work individually or in groups at their own pace, guided by the Math/Science Studio team of teachers. It is often challenging for students to realize the beauty of mathematics, to realize the whole picture of this exciting discipline and how it connects with almost every other discipline. Thus, our main goal is to make students love mathematics and guide them to learn how to think in a mathematical way. Through that perspective, we insist on the conceptual understanding of the material taught. Additionally, students are given mathematical riddles and puzzles to work on, so as to cultivate mathematical reasoning, as well as interesting problems to enhance their skills, and extracurricular activities to engage them in learning. We often conduct interdisciplinary workshops to showcase the interrelation of mathematics with other sciences, music, and art, while at the same time inspiring students to broaden their horizons.

“Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding.”

– William Paul Thurston
