Overcoming Math Anxiety the Kinetic Math Way

Does your child cringe when he/she is about to attend a Math class?

Is he/she always worried about being called to recite Math class?

Does your child fear Math test more than any other kind of test?

Does he/she tend to zone out in Math class?

Does he/she dread doing Math tasks?

Does he/she worry about not being able to keep up with the rest of the class in Math?

If your child has this strong emotional reaction to Mathematics, he/she might be suffering from Math anxiety. Math anxiety is an intense emotional feeling of anxiety that people have about their ability to understand and do Mathematics. People who feel tension, apprehension and fear of situations involving Math are said to have Math anxiety.

Math anxiety may start when children are quite young. This is usually caused by a student’s negative experience with math. This may be related to getting a low grade in math, being embarrassed in Math class, unpleasant experience with the math teacher, or being punished by a parent or teacher for failing to master a math concept.

Math anxiety is an emotional, rather than an intellectual problem. However, math anxiety interferes with the person’s ability to do math tasks, thus, leading to poor performance in Math. Because math anxiety can reduce math competence, it is crucial that parents detect and address this as soon as possible.

One way to combat math anxiety is to provide the child a safe venue to learn Math. Kinetic Math Enrichment Center recognizes this need which is why it offers one-on-one and group math sessions (1:3 teacher-student ratio) in a child-friendly learning space.

SINGAPORE MATH IN THE PHILIPPINES

The Singapore Math curriculum has created a name worldwide in producing students who are brilliant in Math. Many schools and educators around the world were awed by how the math curriculum of Singapore help their students to consistently land on one of the top ranks, if not the topmost rank,  of Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). TIMSS is a large-scale assessment taken by Grade 4 and Grade 8 students of participating countries to provide internationally comparative data about students’ achievement in Math and Science. These data inspired many schools all over the world to use the Singapore Math curriculum.

In the Philippines, many schools have adapted Singapore Math in their curriculum like Ateneo de Manila Grade School, Xavier School, Immaculate Concepcion Academy (ICA), KEYS Grade School, MGC New Life Christian Academy, Victory Christian International School, and Meridian International Learning Experience. Some students who study in schools which use the traditional math, on the other hand, go to after-school centers offering Singapore Math like the Kinetic Math Enrichment Center (link of about us page)  in Katipunan (link of contact us page)  and in San Juan (link of contact us page). Kinetic Math’s Singapore Math program uses energizing and engaging learning activities which help students develop numerical fluency, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills while enjoying math.

The Singapore Math program of Kinetic Math helps students develop not only their critical, creative and problem solving skills but also their positive attitude about math. It teaches students in stages, beginning with the concrete (using manipulatives), then moving to the pictorial (solving problems with pictures) and finally working in the abstract (numbers). It makes children learn not just the “how’s” but also the “why’s” of mathematics which strengthens the pupils’ conceptual understanding.
