As Math Learning Gaps Threaten the “COVID Generation,” It’s Time to Act

By Joanne Helperin | August 14, 2020

When the global pandemic shuttered schools across the U.S. in March, the concept of the “COVID slide” became a new term in our vocabulary. It refers to a pattern of learning loss that typically happens over summer break, but more severe due to extended school closures. The COVID slide means that students may start the 2020-2021 school year substantially behind in their education and will continue to struggle this year — and potentially well beyond.

Students are struggling to catch up and keep up in math. Mathnasium’s Kickstart Program determines exactly which end-of-year concepts a student missed and addresses them with individualized learning plans.
