On this call, Larry and Dave Peddie (Lake Forest, CA) will talk about what are appropriate materials and teaching strategies to use at different stages of development, and how they can help reduce the potential for ‘burn out’ and ‘boredom’ as students advance through the grades.

Next, Melanie Staus (West Roswell, GA) will provide some helpful hints for educating parents and students about the Mathnasium program. Additionally, she will address some of questions that she is frequently asked by franchisees.

Then Jeff Pudewell (Folsom & El Dorado Hills, CA) will talk about how he sets instructional priorities and objectives, and share how he explains ‘the Mathnasium Hour’ to parents.
