## 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: Your MATH Homework Partner

Are you having a difficult time helping your child in his or her math homework?

Does your child find his math lesson more confusing after teaching him a “short-cut”?

Does your child give you a “…but teacher said…” or “That is not what teacher said in class.” statement when you help him with a math problem?

If your answer to the questions above is YES, you are not alone. Many parents get frustrated when guiding their children in their Math homework. This may be attributed to the changes in the Math curriculum these days. Gone were the days when a person is considered a Math whiz if he can calculate big numbers mentally in a few seconds. Since the calculator, computer or even the cellphone can do the calculation for us, Math these days is now more focused in honing the child’s critical thinking and problem solving skills. Thus, the objective and content of the Math homework has changed from procedural to conceptual understanding of the lesson.

Kinetic Math – Your TRUE Math Enrichment Center addresses this problem of parents as it provides math tutorial sessions to children from kindergarten to Grade 8 level. Since there are some students who need to have one-on-one Math sessions in order to master the math lessons in class, Kinetic Math BGC  is now offering ONE-ON-ONE math tutorial classes with their well-trained Math teachers. Located at the 3rd floor of Bonifacio Technology Center, Kinetic Math assesses and addresses children’s needs through an individual plan that is tailor-fit to the child’s math level, needs and goals.

Aside from the math tutorial program, Kinetic Math also offers Math Exam Review program, Singapore Math, Saxon Math, Mental Math and Bellwork.
