We aim to be a fun enrichment class and develop both the left and right hemispheres of the brain of children through play, while improving the speed of their mental arithmetic calculations and accuracy of problem-sum solving.
- Trains children to perform mental calculations with ease, high speed, and accuracy;
- Applies this to problem-sum solving in school with accuracy.
- Provides a fun and collaborative learning environment.
Our vibrant and beautifully-decorated classrooms provide a happy and conducive environment for learning. Lessons are conducted in English to cater to local and international students. Our abacus and the mental arithmetic component of our curriculum are derived from the standards of the Taiwan National Abacus Association, while our Mathematics problem-sum solving component of our curriculum is in line with the syllabus from Singapore’s Ministry of Education.
The education landscape is changing rapidly. While it is important for children to perform well in school academically, children should also be equipped with the necessary skills to prepare themselves for tomorrow’s world of technology disruption. Children should be able to think out of the box, work well with teams, be analytical and be embrace change, while enjoying the learning process.
Parents who have researched into brain development know that the brain consists of both the left hemisphere and the right hemisphere. A child’s creative right brain is very active from birth and becomes less and less dominant as he/she grows older, while the logical left brain becomes more and more dominant as the child grows older.
Mentalmatics™ is a two-hand mental arithmetic programme which increases the flexibility of the brain while a child performs mental calculations involving the four mathematical operators – addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division – while also helping the child apply his/her mental arithmetic abilities to increase the speed and accuracy of his/her answers in the Mathematics problem-sums segment in school.
