Thu, Mar 23, 2017

Success at maths is essential for your child’s future

Thu, Mar 23, 2017

There is no doubting the importance of mathematics in everyday life. It is a subject that promotes reasoning, creativity, abstract and spatial thinking, problem-solving, and communication.

The learning of mathematics is analogous to building a wall. Starting in primary school, the foundation goes in and each row of bricks is placed on top. Without a solid foundation the wall begins to wobble as the student progresses up through third, fourth, fifth, and sixth class when more complex concepts and more demanding skills are encountered. This will result in a student, who although perfectly capable of mastering maths, begins to lose confidence and starts to doubt his/her ability to keep up with his/her peers.
