ASTEME LEARNING CENTER
Advancement of Science, Technology
& Engineering in Math Education
"Jobs in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields (STEM) pay an average
26 percent more than other occupations and grew three times faster during the past decade. - U.S. Commerce Department (2011)
Learning Center is a groundbreaking
enrichment program designed by Allan Yu who is a leader in progressive math education on the Westside. Allan Yu has worked
as a director and co-director of institutes with the UCLA Math Project for 8 years.
Allan Yu was
trained by Megan Franke and has been teaching teachers, parents, schools and districts how to successfully implement Cognitively
Guided Instruction successfully with children.
Center was created to help our children discover the answer to a question that many teachers and parents hear every day - "When
am I ever going to use math in my life?" Our unique program allows our students to not only learn math, but experience
math in fun and exciting ways in
the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and more. Our goal is to inspire children to live, love and learn math, and create life long mathematicians. From the child who is struggling with math in school to the one
who is ready for more sophisticated challenges, ASTEME Learning Center provides a safe and inspiring place from which to explore
the many roads in which math can lead us.
Preparing for the future ...
The traditional approach to teaching math overemphasizes the use of algorithm tricks
and shortcuts to find the answers. This approach is reflected in how math instruction is dominated by worksheets
and rote memorization of rules and steps. No Child Left Behind has created a math culture where a child's ability
to take tests now supersedes a child's ability to think.
Our individualized interest based activities allow students to
immediately apply what they are taught and actually see the math in action. This not only demystifies the purpose of learning
math, but also helps students develop confidence and a stronger sense of "math-esteem" both of which are crucial
in how one sees him/herself as a mathematician.
ASTEME Learning Center recognizes the importance of not just getting the right
answers, but also helping students develop a love and passion for math that will provide them with more career opportunities
in the future. We strive to make math meaningful by connecting the dots for the students and helping them understand how
math is used in everyday life, and thus why learning math is so important.
