It’s that time of year again! Put the beach umbrella away, stash the surfboard under the veranda and get ready to go back to school. The holidays are over.
With the return of school, many kids dread heading into their maths class, where math concepts are often drilled in by rote memorisation, repetitive exercises, and pop quizzes. These sometimes tedious and abstract methods can create anxiety for some students and actually block the path to a fundamental understanding math which can linger for years.
Wouldn’t it be much more effective and enjoyable for students if maths was taught in a way that leaped out of the text book and off the board to capture their imaginations – in a way that was actually tangible and interactive, even fun?
Fortunately, there is a way… with Math-U-See.
Math-U-See is a highly effective, award-winning maths learning program for children of all ages and ability, from kindy to HSC and beyond. This interactive, self-paced math learning program helps students gain a solid foundation and understanding of math through sequential learning using the different learning styles – tactile, kinaesthetic, auditory and visual.
As Steve Demme, founder of Maths-U-See, explains, “Many people confuse memorization with understanding. For example, knowing how to divide is important, but understanding when to divide is equally important. Students must be able to grasp and apply the concepts that are critical in problem solving.”
Unlike traditional math learning, the Math-U-See program utilizes a series of coloured blocks which render math concepts immediately understandable, and includes a self-paced lesson DVD and work book, making it easy for use by children and adults alike.
With programs designed to suit any age, grade or level (from basic numbers all the way to calculus), Math-U-See has consistently delivered outstanding results, helping students achieve their grade level expectancy in math and well beyond.
Parents can also save money on tutoring fees while improving their child’s understanding of maths with the innovative Math-U-See program, which has been widely used in Australia over the past 12 years across various learning environments – from schools to tuition, home schooling, and special education.
As one parent said, “This learning program has helped my daughter gain such a good understanding of math. It has even helped me in trying to teach her. I can only recommend it to anyone, no matter how old your kids are, how good or slow at math.”
So, whether your child lags behind or excels, or could simply do with a more solid foundation and understanding of math, the learning on promise with the Math-U-See learning program, is a gift for life.
