## Kinetic Math’s Mastering Fractions Summer Program

Children gain some basic understanding of fractions when children come to school. They understand the concept of half or equal sharing by counting one for you, one for you… Then, in the early grades, they get to learn formally what a fraction is and how one whole, one-half and one-fourth looks like.

However, when they get to the third and fourth grade, they are taught more complex concepts and skills about fractions. They go beyond what a numerator and denominator means and beyond naming or identifying fractions. Children are now introduced to fraction arithmetic- addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of fractions.

Many students do poorly in this topic in Math. Children often commit mistakes on the procedures because they rely on rote memorization of the steps rather than understanding the underlying concepts. Other students view fractions as meaningless symbols. Some view numerators and denominators as separate numbers rather that a unified whole.

A deep and enduring understanding of fractions is an important stepping stone for learning other math concepts such as decimals, percentage, ratio, and probability. It is likewise essential for learning algebra, geometry and other aspects of higher math.

To help students excel in Fractions next school year, Kinetic Math Enrichment Center is offering Mastering Fractions Summer Program. This program will provide a step-by-step introduction to fractions through a visual and conceptual approach. It will help students visualize and conceptualize fractions and calculate and solve word problems using them. This course will tackle adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions. It will likewise teach the students how to draw fraction bar models which are powerful tools in solving multi-step fraction word problems.

## Kinetic Math’s Integers and Algebra Summer Course

Why do many high school students fail or get low grades in Math?

Why do some students have difficulty answering entrance test questions in Math?

One of the many culprits for the abovementioned difficulties is the poor basic foundational knowledge and skills in algebra and integers. Understanding algebra and integers are necessary to solve equations.

Algebra is a branch of Mathematics that uses numbers and letters that represent numbers. Algebra strengthens logic skills and introduces abstract thinking. In algebra, students must understand that symbols such as x and y stand for numbers that vary and that these symbols can be used in solving real-life and mathematical problems.

In integers, on the other hand, students deal with zero, positive and negative whole numbers. It is very important to learn this because we use integers in our daily lives- weather, finances, sports, geography and science. Since performing operations on integers involve signs of the numbers and signs of operations, some students struggle in remembering the rules and procedure for certain problems or equations.

This summer, Kinetic Math Enrichment Center will offer the Integers and Algebra Summer Course. Integers & Algebra Summer Course aims to help students transition from the visual model method to the abstract concepts of integers and algebra. In this course, students will learn about integers and build on the knowledge to develop skills in algebra. This will train the students to think and reason logically, orderly and abstractly.

## Kinetic Math’s Bar Model Method Training Camp

Did your child have difficulty in solving math word problems this school year or for the past school years?

Did your child do well in other items of the Math test except for those that involve word problems?

Is your child transferring to a school that has a Singapore Math curriculum?

Do you want to prepare your child for more complex word problems next school year?

Did your child get the correct computation but wrong bar models in the Math homework/quiz/ exam?

Do you want to help your child solve word problems using the bar models but do not know how to do so?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, Kinetic Math Enrichment Center, has a solution for your problem. This summer, Kinetic Math will offer once again its most sought after math summer program— the Bar Model Method Training Camp.

The Bar Model Method Training Camp will teach the students how to solve word problems using the bar model method. The bar model method is a systematic method of representing word problems and number relationships using rectangular bars. This helps children visualize the problem, know which operation/s to perform and view all problems from an algebraic perspective beginning in early elementary levels.

To register your child for the Bar Model Method Training Camp, you may contact or visit the Kinetic Math Center near you.
