Parents are usually happy and satisfied when their children are doing well academically. When academics are involved, the top subjects where parents wanted their children to excel are Science, Mathematics and Language (particularly, English).
Many children though are having difficulty in these topic areas, particularly in Mathematics. The fear of numbers, which others refer to as fear of Math is actually not a myth. Arithmophobia or Numerophobia is the exaggerated, constant and often irrational fear of numbers (source: fearof.net).
Singaporeans have long discovered the method for learning Mathematics in a non-traumatic and actually enjoyable manner. They called the method Singapore Math or Singapore Maths and their adoption of this teaching and learning program led to dramatic improvements of students’ math proficiency.
The Singapore Math approach is advocated and introduced by Seriously Addictive Mathematics (SAM) which has centers all over the world, including the Philippines. The good news for Marikina folks — Marikina just opened its first and only Singapore Math Seriously Addictive Mathematics Center.
The SAM Center offers enrichment program specializing in Mathematics for children 4 to 12 years old. It’s curriculum is modeled after Singapore’s successful mathematics program. It veers away from teaching Math traditionally where children are immediately exposed to concepts, mathematical formulas and memorization of figures. Rather, it promotes development of skills in problem solving which encourages in children the love for self-learning and self-discovery; learning in increments which allow the children to learn according to their learning pace, beginning with solving math problems until they are ready for complex mathematical equations.
SAM tutors use the Concrete Pictorial Abstract (CPA) approach where learners are assisted to solve math problems by engaging with toys and learning materials they can touch and play with. This method makes learning math engaging, practical and fun. And to make sure the children are having their support system at home, their parents are also taught the benefits and basic strategy for using Singapore Math.
Start your children early with core fundamentals in learning Math the surest, wisest and adaptable manner for actual living. Inquire now with Marikina’s Seriously Addictive Mathematics (SAM) Center by calling them in these numbers — 09176563115 or 2097265.
