The brain of a child at any age is like a sponge, soaking up every new thing that they learn. However, if the teaching is done incorrectly, then it may hinder their learning later. At Math Monkey we can equip and help your child to learn mathematics, supplementing what they learn in school in a less stressful yet in a richly motivating way through the methodology of BrainThink Learning in achieving a Math Brain.
The Birth of Math Monkey
In line with the development of a child’s brain with respect to mathematics, a professional educator by the name of Kirsten Fisch founded Math Monkey in the US in 2006. What Kirsten did is to cleverly combine the coherence of Vedic math with a fun-based program to motivate children to form a genuine interest in math.
It was not long before Math Monkey began to gain popularity in other countries across the world, and now there are two centres in Singapore.
The Concept of Math Monkey
At Math Monkey, we believe that every child has the ability and potential to be good at mathematics. This will display through academic performance accompanied with parent’s support and partnership by developing what Math Monkey calls the “MathBrain”. Understanding the student’s abilities such as ‘Attention’, ‘Visual’, ‘Memory’, ‘Logical Processing’, and ‘Speed’ in an environment learning through fun, games and group activities, the primary objective is for the child to gain confidence and comfortable with their abilities in math. The child will find that she will be able to:
Gather information accurately
Be familiar with numbers and numerical symbols
Think out the best approach to solve a problem
Apply the relevant formula
Do all the above swiftly and accurately
The Math Monkey Way of Learning Mathematics
At Math Monkey, each teacher is committed to ensure that children are motivated and driven to use their best intellectual skills both in class and at home, so as to gain and exhibit a high proficiency in math. Each day is a new learning experience for your child, who will find that there is something to be learned from mathematics every time a problem is solved.
Each student at Math Monkey is encouraged to not only solve math problems mentally as well as to visualise the question carefully, to test and repeat in understanding what is required and determine which method to use for achieving the end result. This ensures that your child gets it right through curiosity, explore, test, repeat and master math.
To ensure that all primary school kids get the right stimulation and learning relevant to their age and capabilities, different groups are formed to participate in engaging the children through different games and fun activities. There are seven age-based groups, with the youngest comprising children between 3 to 5 years old, on up to the oldest group typically comprising of 11 to 12 years old children.
