An Explanation of the Math Pyramid

The Cottage Education Distance Learning System is available to anyone, who is willing to learn. If they have access to a computer and an Internet connection, students can study anytime and anywhere. Cottage Education Homepage has Online Tutoring and Online Exercises sections for students to practice at their convenience. The Online Tutoring section is based on a question and answer format. The Online Exercises section is based on a multiple choice, practice test format with immediate scores. Students always have access to the latest changes and improvements without any extra steps.

The Cottage Education Math Program is an academic course based on performance. Students study according to their own pace. The program is designed to respond to the needs of students from the sixth grade, to those in their second year of college. Each lesson, of each subject, is clearly identified and based on previous lessons. Students cannot start studying higher level sections without mastering the lower level materials.

Lessons have explanations, examples, exercises and quizzes. If students fail to pass the quizzes, they may not go to the next level, but must review the same lesson, repeatedly, until they master it. The pace of study, and testing, is based on the student's progress and achievements.

The first part of curriculum starts with basic arithmetic. This portion covers; mechanical addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. This part of the curriculum also contains simple word problems of these basic operations. In the second portion, of this curriculum, students will be shown how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide signed (positive and negative) numbers , and American measurements. The calculation of geometric perimeters, areas, volume measurements and calculating averages are also included in this level. Students who master these first groups are allowed to move to the second hierarchal group of subjects. This second hierarchy covers mechanical and word problems involving fractions, decimals, percentages, and ratios. In this portion, students must add, subtract, multiply and divide all types of fraction, decimal, percentage and ratio problems with multiple operations. The third hierarchy of subjects includes: exponents, radical numbers, graphing, and metric measurements. The next portion is a detailed study of algebra, and the final portion introduces geometry.
