This month Schrool officially released its controversial, no pressure, math learning course designed to help struggling middle-school students catch up on their math and cope better with homework pressures.
http://www.schrool.com methodology not only helps students to better understand concepts and learn how to solve math problems, but also boost their confidence and self-esteem, allowing them to progress with leaps and bounds in math over a relatively short time!
“It’s learning in reverse!” says Richard Pidial, CEO of http://www.schrool.com “It all started when I was conducting interviews for an educational company. While talking with parents, I came across students whose math levels were up to two years below their current grades. Their only solution: intensive one on one tutoring, which comes at a price.”
With the help of colleagues, Pidial conducted a survey to investigate the depth of this problem, with the aim of finding an effective and affordable solution.
350 students, 12 years old and up, were asked to fill in a questionnaire and sit for a quick test, which was a year below their current grade. Almost 70% couldn’t complete the test and gave up after attempting an average of 5 questions out of 10.
Data collected about students’ likes and dislikes concerning math revealed that most don’t complete their homework due to a lack of both confidence and knowledge.
"The reason for lagging behind in math is usually the pressure associated with homework. It’s not easy for children to remember everything they learn at school. And, math is not the only subject they study. When they get stuck doing their homework, they have no one to turn to; forget parents,” Pidial says.
“Students tend to think of homework as a chore with which they don’t want to spend more time than necessary to ‘get by’. If they have to, they would rather refer to already worked out solutions. So far, however, solutions have been only static, with not many ‘details’ shown. That can make a big difference to the already struggling student,” adds Pidial.
While working with a group of children, a clever tweak was accidentally uncovered that inspired them to further effort. During one session a flash explanation was presented to this group of pupils.
The step-by-step, detailed solutions helped the students to fully understand the methodology. After a few repetitions, they were able to reconstruct the step-by- step solutions and achieve to the answers, something they were unable to do before.
After using similar examples for other math topics, it was found that 9 out of 10 students could correctly answer questions on their own.
“The results were conclusive enough for all, and the group decided to create a complete series of lessons to help middle school students, where the problem is more pronounced,” Pidial says.
“This system is of tremendous benefit to parents who now have the opportunity to become more involved with their children’s math and assist them just like a pro,” says Pidial.
"http://www.schrool.com covers the core of math between 5th and 9th grade, and is also suitable for higher grade students for revision. It is complemented by a comprehensive English grammar course that comes with each enrolment,” Pidial points out.
"What sets us apart from others is our focus on middle to high school students where math starts to become more demanding. It targets those having problems coping with math classes rather than students already doing reasonably well. Our program was created for such students, so they can use it to finally understand and perform, with an easier opportunity to pursue math beyond grade 10,” Pidial adds.
http://www.schrool.com is a perfect backup for teachers in the classroom, as well as parents in search of help at an affordable price.
After trying many programs Bill Marlow, a parent who needed help for his children, had this to say, “I’ve been desperately searching the net for a program that would help my children with their math. I bought a few and also subscribed to some free courses, but not many had features that could help my already struggling kids. When I came across this learning method, I was impressed by its simplicity and the possibility it offered me to assist my children when needed. I subscribed and was pleasantly surprised! My kids are now doing a whole lot better and even excelling in class!”
"This teaching method has been painstakingly put together to make it a ‘complete’ learning package for the benefit of every user. This system is designed to specifically help any child understand math in the shortest possible time,” says Pidial.
http://www.schrool.com has already begun to revolutionize the educational industry in a manner never experienced before and will continue to do so in a much broader way as the internet continue to evolve.
