Our Current Small Group Classes
6th-Grade Mid-Year Math Booster
Sixth-grade students will have a blast in this hands-on math class all taught online with Adrianne Meldrum, the owner and head math coach of Math for Middles.
This booster class of 4 weekly sessions is all about FRACTIONS which is perfect for your 6th graders as they’re currently working on ratios at school this year.
HOW THIS CLASS WORKS:
- I’ll meet with your child and 4 others in a small group once a week, for 4 weeks.
- Each week, your child will watch 5- 10 short and highly engaging videos about fractions on their own time, totaling approximately 1-hour per week.
- We will discuss, explore, and practice these concepts when we meet together in our weekly small group.
- We work all online, but materials will be mailed to your house which includes a workbook and math manipulatives for our lessons.
- And in case you were wondering….students love working online!
Listen to What Our Students Say About This Class
HOW this class helps NOW and in the FUTURE:
In elementary school, your child was working on building their number sense. There is quite a bit of overlap on topics each year but once they reach middle school, new information is coming in at a much more rapid rate.
When your child doesn’t have a solid foundation in place, you’ll notice that their confidence goes down as they realize they’re not as good as math as they thought. It can be easy to “hide” in the early years, but in the middle school classroom, it’s easy to see where the gaps in knowledge are.
Spending time shoring up the foundation with a deeper understanding of fractions helps students not only to succeed now but at all levels of math as they advance in school.
Right now we can apply it to ratios and proportions. Then as they move grades they’ll encounter fractions in disguise…
Remember polynomial division from algebra?
Those are all fractions. When you understand how they work at a basic level, you’ll be able to tackle polynomial division with fewer battles.
My goal is to get your child to ask themselves whenever they encounter a fraction or decimal, “What do I know about fractions?” and be able to recall the 3 fraction rules I teach.

Even though we meet online, students use their senses as they manipulate math goodies like these foam stickers. In this featured lesson, we are working on making equivalent pieces.
These chunky math shapes are not just for younguns, we use them too! We explore relationships between the shapes and express abstract fractions in concrete ways.
Online learning doesn’t have to feel like working with software! Students are engaged, using their hands to explore math through a variety of lessons while also having access to our fraction videos inside of Fractions 101

Brain Sticky Math Facts
Try our focused class on math facts! In this class, we’ll be using multisensory techniques to make connections in the brain and also working on rapid recall of facts. We teach multiplication facts in conjunction with division/fractions. Student’s love working in a small group and gain the skills to FINALLY make those facts stick.
