Location? Great Lawrence Technical School, 57 River Rd, Andover MA 01810

When? The Weekday Enrichment Program runs from Jan. 2018 to May 2018.

Who? Programs are intended to students from the 4th to 11th grades.

Why? IDEA MATH programs intend to help able and interested students develop systematic methods for problem-solving and build a solid foundation for their future studies. We believe students learn best by discovering, rather than simply memorizing, essential theorems and techniques. Our program puts students at the center of the classes, as students improve their problem-solving skills individually as well as in group settings. Our instructors lead this process by giving meaningful examples, guiding students through the problem-solving process, and assisting students to summarize critical points.

How? We apply seminar-style teaching in our classes. Class sizes are small (usually around 15, and rarely more than 18) to ensure that students receive plenty of individual attention. Students are expected to work as a group and present their solutions and ideas to the class.

Important notes for course availability/selection and placement:

The above lists consist of projected courses we offer in this program.

Please note: the schedule is subject to change based on actual enrollment and staff availability.

The IDEA MATH academic team will review enrolled students' background and work with them on placement and/or projected placement levels. The purpose of the placement test is to group students with similar backgrounds together, and our teachers will find proper materials to work with each group/section.
