Mathematics course

Mathematics course at Lern-Forum Zurich for more success at high school

As part of our repetition and probation courses, we at Lern-Forum Zürich naturally also offer a mathematics course for Swiss students. More precisely, it is even several courses offers for mathematics at high school, so that we can optimally support your child on the way to real success in mathematics high school.

Especially if your child wants to fulfill the dream of great education or a special course of study at a good university, good math grades are indispensable. After all, the math grade not only affects transfer and the Matura, but also leaves an impression during job interviews. Whether it's fair or not; the math grade still stands for a quick grasp and high intelligence.

How important is high school math really for your child?

A good report card is still proof of above-average performance. Since corresponding performance is then expected not only in school but also in further training, it opens doors and facilitates the next step toward success. Many companies also attach importance to hiring employees who can solve problems independently and document their solutions in a comprehensible manner. Since the math grade usually best reflects this ability, as well as perseverance, accuracy, and independence, many Swiss companies pay particular attention to it.

Unfortunately, however, mathematics at the Gymnasium is a particular challenge for many Swiss students. In order to help your child in a targeted way, we offer our mathematics course at the Lern-Forum in Zurich. In our compact mathematics course at the Lern-Forum in Zurich, we not only repeat and consolidate the content learned so far, but also efficiently prepare the upcoming content. So enable your child to take a decisive step toward success by enrolling them in one of our math courses.

With our mathematics course at Lern-Forum Zürich, we want to provide your child with optimal support on their academic path.

1st year long-track Gymnasium

Mathematics in long-track Gymnasium asks a lot of the students. Mathematical terms, algebra, complex reasoning and a fast pace can push some students to their limits. In our autumn holiday course, we review and solidify the class material using modern learning techniques. We value efficiency over hours and hours of practice!

Work on skills - Solve problems

Mathematics requires a set of skills (repetitive practice to improve speed - the mathematical craft) and the ability to solve mathematical problems (complex, difficult tasks that require cognitive skills and intelligence).

1st year short-track Gymnasium

The student has passed the entrance exam—now they must complete the probationary period.

Many students struggle with systematical thinking and with the speed of the class. Every mathematical step must be validated—proven—before it can be used. Mathematics is no longer learned by boring, rote memorisation.

In the probationary period course for short-track Gymnasium, the students learn skills (binomials, compound fractions, etc.) as well as to take notes, reason along and listen to other students' questions—in short, systematical thinking.

Students receive a course binder with plenty of practice material, which covers the curriculum for the probationary period.

Mathematics pre-course

for short-track Gymnasium / tech. BMS

The probationary period is fast approaching, and mathematics is often a scary prospect. At Lern-Forum, students learn how to properly prepare for tests, practise learned skills, and solve advanced problems. We look ahead, not back. In our courses, we ready students for the coming school year so that they can continue to succeed academically.


The main goals of our course are to give students a solid foundation in the material covered thus far and to help them develop independent problem-solving skills. Students learn to work comfortably with difficult terms, equations, fractions and binomials, and also become familiar with the Gymnasium / tech. BMS teaching style.

The decisive year

The 6th year of primary school is when a child's next educational steps are decided. The goal is to reach the highest level of performance and enter either long-track Gymnasium of Secondary A.

It has been demonstrated that other classmates and the learning environment play a decisive role in influencing a child's motivation and determination to succeed.

Maths review, end of year 5

Students are divided into performance levels for the first time after primary school. Good students enter Gymnasium or the Bezirksschule, where all chances for further education remain open to them.

In order to achieve well in their last year of primary school, students must have a solid base of understanding. This is the only way to stay on the ball and increase self-confidence.

Preparation for Matura exam

The Matura is closing in! Do you want to give your maths skills a final polish? Then you've come to the right place! We offer professionally-led Matura prep courses to help you put the final touches on your maths abilities.

For a good Matura result - the decisive step towards a successful future.
