When you want to get better at sports, you don’t start by jumping straight into the match. You learn more about the sport and build specific skills that will improve your game. Once you’re fluent and have precision with the basics, you are ready to take on the game.
Math is the same way. Learning the basics and practicing skills will help improve your math game and leave you with confidence! Bright Futures Learning Services is hosting a Mathletics Training Camp for children entering 1st through 8th grade who want to become a trained mathlete!
The Mathletics Training Camp utilizes the Morningside Model of Generative Instruction (MMGI). MMGI combines well-designed instructional materials, fast-paced classroom presentation, and focused practice to fluency. This model has shown to consistently lead to two years of academic growth in one school year for learners previously below grade level.
The camp runs for four weeks. The mathletes are strongly encouraged to attend at least two of the four weeks. Mathletics sessions run five days a week for two hours each day beginning July 9 and ending August 3. The cost is $200 per week, or $175 per week if you sign up for all four weeks.
What the camp provides overall:
- A diagnostic pre and post assessment report outlining grade and skill levels
- Carefully sequenced instruction in math foundation skills
- Fluency training in computation and reasoning
- Instruction in the award-winning Talk Aloud Problem Solving (TAPS) curriculum, which builds critical thinking skills
- Confidence and tools to monitor own progress
- Daily score card summarizing

Learners are placed on a team based on results of their initial assessment rather than grade or age. Assessments are $80 and will take place on June 27th & 28th at Putnam County Library’s main branch and may be done in one of three sessions on either day:
9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.
4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
If you can’t find a tryout time that works for you, contact us to discuss other arrangements. You must register for an assessment by June 26.
Learners will be placed on one of three teams based on the results of their assessment:
Team One will focus on building fluency with foundation skills – counting, writing numbers, adding, subtracting, responding in a group, and the award-winning Talk Aloud Problem-Solving curriculum. Team One will meet every weekday from 8:45 a.m. – 10:45 a.m.
Team Two will learn Talk Aloud Problem Solving and build fluency with plus/minus and times/divide. This course introduces learners to interpreting and solving word and logic problems. Team Two will meet every weekday from 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Team Three focuses on fast-paced mixed presentation of plus/minus, times/divide, fractions, decimals and percentages across auditory and visual learning channels, allowing students to generalize their knowledge quickly. This course also builds fluency with finding and self-correcting math errors and helps students learn fundamentals of algebra. Team Three will meet every weekday from 2:15 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.
