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 (link to the main page) 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.

 

 

 

Kinetic Math is also known for its energizing and engaging learning activities which help students develop numerical fluency, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills while enjoying Math.

Make your kids experience MATH like no other this summer.

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 
  • Are ready for advanced lessons 

You may choose from the following Math summer classes:

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 

(for students from Grade 1 to Grade 8) 

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.
