The Daily Beast's Kristina Dell recently posted an article  about the increasingly difficult time students are having getting into highly ranked universities. Some of the most prestigious private institutions, like Harvard, accept as few as 6% of applicants. Even some state schools' acceptance rates are as low as 20%. What's a concerned parent to do?
Peaksmart parents are doing their part to ensure their kids are learning the math they'll need to increase their chances of doing well in advanced-placement math classes in high school, their chances of passing entrance exams, and of doing well on the math portions of the SAT or ACT.
Peaksmart can help kids with more than their math skills. Once a child feels comfortable with their ability to master increasingly difficult math topics and concepts, at their own pace, their overall confidence grows.
One of the best ways to develop math confidence  is to practice math frequently. Whether or not it’s quiz day for your Peaksmart student, our adaptive practice is always available for a quick refresher or a sneak peak at the topics coming on the next quiz. Frequent exposure to small doses of Peaksmart's math problems, tailored specifically for your student's skill level, helps ensure that math anxiety doesn't have an opportunity to take hold.
So don't fret, Peaksmart parents! You're taking the first steps in helping your child beat the college admission odds. But more importantly, you're helping build a confidence that will drive your child to find their passion and succeed, despite the odds.
