High marks in mathematics are still seen as evidence of a quick mind and high intelligence. A good report is proof of above-average performance and opens doors to future success. Many companies prefer to employ people who are able to solve problems on their own initiative and can document their problem-solving methods. When choosing potential employees, companies tend to look for good marks in maths, which usually indicate determination, accuracy and independent thought.

Take the first step to success!

Join one of Lern-Forum's compact courses in mathematics to strengthen your maths skills in an efficient and practical manner.

Participation in a course is limited to a maximum of 8 students so that teachers can focus their attention on each individual.

Mathematics review

for Matura course


Long-term gymnasium first year

Long-term gymnasium mathematics can be tough. Mathematical terms, algebra, complex thought processes as well as a fast learning pace can push some students to their limits. During the autumn holidays, we offer a course that focusses on repetition and further practice of additional math problems. This course features modern teaching methods emphasising efficiency over hours of practice.

Problem solving skills

Mathematics requires both skills in repetitive practice in order to gain speed as well as skills in mathematic problem solving (difficult complex problems that require cognitive skills and intelligence).

Short- term gymnasium first year

Entrance exams have passed and now it's time for students to stand the test for the short-term gymnasium and get through the probationary period.

Many students have problems adjusting to the fast learning pace and the new systematic thinking process. Each mathematical step has to be proven before it can be utilised. Math is no longer boring practice.

The probationary period course for the short-term gymnasium comprises, on the one hand, mathematical skills such as binomials and complex fractions and, on the other hand, copying, thinking ahead and listening to other students' questions. The focus is on the systematic thinking in mathematics.

We offer a comprehensive course binder with plenty of exercises covering the topics of the probationary period is included in the course.

Mathematics pre-course

for short-term gymnasium / technical BMS

As the probationary period draws closer, students often fall prey to the fear of mathematics. Our course teaches students how to prepare properly for the exams and learn how to solve more complex problems. The course also includes comprehensive revision and consolidation of prior material. At the Lern-Forum we are always looking forward and prepare our students for the coming school period, so that they can more easily master the next step on the path to success.

Learning objectives:

The main goal of this course is to provide students with a solid foundation of the school material and for them to develop independent problem solving skills. Students gain confidence in the solving of complex terms, equations, fractions and binomials. Students also learn about the teaching methods of the short-term gymnasium / technical BMS.

The deciding year

Primary 6 is a very crucial year; it is during this year that the decision is made which secondary school the student moves into. The goal is to move into the most optimal school, i.e. long-term gymnasium or secondary school.

It has been proven that both environment and peers play an important role in the development of performance incentive and healthy ambition.

Mathematics repetition end of 5th grade Primary

After primary school, pupils are divided into performance levels for the first time. The good students move on to the gymnasium or district school, where they have every opportunity for further education.

In order to start as well as possible in the 6th grade, the basic knowledge must be well-founded. This is the only way to keep the student on track and gain self-confidence.

Preparation for the Matura

If you are about to do the Matura and want to put the finishing touches to your math skills, this is the course for you. The course is a professionally lead preparation course for the Matura especially designed to fill any holes in the mathematical knowledge required for the Matura.

The course for good Matura results - an important step towards a successful future.
