## Beat the Summer Learning Loss at Kinetic Math

Does your child tend to forget what he learned from the past school year after his summer vacation? Studies have shown that two-thirds of the achievement gap can be attributed to summer learning loss in elementary school. Since these losses accumulate over time, some students tend to get further and further behind. This achievement gap, however, may be closed by effective summer learning programs.

This summer, Kinetic Math will offer varied engaging and effective Math summer programs designed to help children REALLY understand Math. The Kinetic Math Summer Programs are designed for students who:

• Failed Math
• Almost failed Math
• Hate Math
• Feared Math
• Did not understand Math
• Love Math

You may choose from the following Math summer classes:

Math Wizards Summer Camp

(for children who are 3-5years old)

Math Wizards Summer Camp is a summer course for children aged 3-5 years old. This program aims to teach Math concepts in a systematic, engaging and fun way! Exciting games, enjoyable activities and written drills will help them master the necessary skills needed to prepare them for the next school year.

Topics:

1. Match and Sort                            8. Comparing Sets
2. Counting                                      9. Comparing Numbers
3. Shapes                                       10. Number Bonds
5. Length and Size                        12. Subtraction
6. Weight                                      13. Time

Mental Math Masters Program

(for children 6 years old and above)

This program aims to teach children PROVEN strategies to compute mentally with accuracy and speed. This will empower the students to calculate mathematically in their heads without using paper and pencil.

In this course, children will develop the fluency flexibility and strategic thinking in mental computation by addressing the following:

1. WHAT: Children will learn the basic number facts and other math concepts.
2. WHEN: Students will have the ability to recognize the demands of a problem and choose the best strategy to solve it.
3. WHY: Each strategy is anchored to math concepts, making it easier forstudents to understand why a procedure works.
4. HOW: Various mental math strategies in addition, subtraction, multiplication anddivision will be discussed systematically and thoroughly in the course.

Bar Model Method Training Camp

(for children who are 7 years old and above)

This program 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.

Levels:

¨ EARLY BIRD LEVEL

¨ PROMISING LEVEL

¨ PROFICIENT LEVEL

Mastering Fractions Summer Program

(for children who are 8 years old & up)

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.

Integers & Algebra Summer Course

(for children who are 11 years old & up)

Algebra plays an important role in    preparing students for higher education. Students who do well in algebra are better prepared for college entrance exams and for college, in   general.

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.

Remedial Program

Kinetic Math Summer Remedial Program is geared towards helping students develop valuable math skills that are vital for learning higher level concepts and skills next school year. This could be anything from being able to compute mentally and communicate mathematically to being able to think critically and creatively.

Traditional Math to Singapore Math Transition Program

(for students from Kinder to Grade 8)

This program aims to help the child bridge the gap between the math skills that he/she has learned in traditional math and the required math skills for his/her grade level in Singapore Math curriculum. This course will equip the students with an in-depth understanding of mathematical concepts and with varied tools for solving complex multi-step word problems, the core of the Singapore Math curriculum.

## 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.

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.
