How Are We Different?

"We teach children to apply mental arithmetic into problem-sum solving in school"

While it is important for children to learn skills that are not taught in school, we understand parents’ concerns of their children’s performance in school. Our programme integrates school problem-sum solving with mental arithmetic. Children will be taught how to apply the skills they acquired during the course of our programme to solve Mathematics problem-sums questions.


"We provide children with a fun and collaborative environment to learn"
Children learn better when they are enjoying and having fun. Our classes are conducted using songs and games which motivate them and keep their spirits high. Music is well-known for its function of speeding up learning processes which keep children motivated at all times. There are also formulae songs and multiplication songs to help children remember number bonds of 5 and number bonds of 10, and the multiplication table. This will serve them well in school as it gives younger children a head-start as compared to their peers.

 

"Online game app – practise at your own pace"
Practice makes perfect! Children can download our online game app from Apple App Store and Google Play Store and happily practise at their own time and pace for great rewards!


"We are a part of the Taiwan National Abacus Association"
We are internationally recognised! Our grading examinations are set according to the standards governed by the Taiwan National Abacus Association.

 
WHY
Mentalmatics
  • We equip children with the important skill set of checking the answers in their Mathematics problem-sum solving questions with speed and accuracy.

  • We have produced students who have not only achieved academic excellence, but they have also progressed to be leaders in their respective schools

  • A child is trained to simultaneously use both his/her left and right hands in our programme. This means that both hemispheres of the brain are constantly stimulated.

  • Questions in our abacus arithmetic books are set in both vertical and horizontal formats, unlike questions in traditional abacus arithmetic books which are only set in vertical format. Children attempting our questions are required to perform the 4 mathematical operators horizontally and vertically, hence increasing their cognitive flexibility.

  • Our programme trains a child’s adaptability while faced with challenges, hence building his/her resilience and character.
