Exam week na!  How are you guys?  Deep breathing much?:-)  I know how taxing and stressful exam week could be not only for the students but for the parents as well (actually baka mas stressed pa tayo;-)).

Last week, when I attended the PTC of my daughter, phone lines were busy as I hear parents calling either their daughters or tutors listing the problem areas of their kids, math being the primary concern, as expected.  Lagot!  Cramming time!  And syempre math is a concept that cannot be crammed.  It takes time and lots and lots of practice to obtain understanding and mastery of the concepts.

If your child is having difficulty with Math, you might want to consider enrolling them in an after school program focusing on math, like Mathemagis.  Mathemagis is a Singapore based,  after-school enrichment program for children 4 – 12 years old.  It is founded by Mathematician, educator and mother, Joanne Sison.  I made an extensive write up on Mathemagis a year back (read my blog here) and my son has since joined several of their programs.

What I like about Mathemagis is that it focuses on conceptual understanding.  Kids are slowly introduced to the concept and are made to comprehend the why's behind it.  I believe this way kids would end up understanding the concept better.  As such,  kahit bali-baliktarin pa ang nakakalitong word problem the kids would more or less still know how to answer it.  After the concepts are understood,  they proceed with procedural mastery and mental strategies.  Ganda ng methodology, hindi ba?:-)

Of course,  methodology is one thing, the teachers executing it is another thing and Mathemagis prides itself with Math/Physics Majors who underwent rigorous training on how to teach Singapore Math through the tutelage of Singapore trained Teacher Joanne.

If you guys want to make math a little bit easier, put a stop to cramming or maybe put a stop to math wars at home (nakakaubos ng dugo!!!), please do check out Mathemagis.

I know some, if not most, of you would love to try it out:-) Mathemagis is giving away five (5) [Read more...]
