Question 1: What is Math Monkey?
Math Monkey is an after-school enrichment program designed for highly motivated children and parents who understand the importance of math excellence. Math Monkey boosts children's logic, reasoning and mental agility through our game-based curriculum inspired by Vedic math, an Indian math philosophy.
Logical & Reasoning
5 X 10 = 10+10+10+10+10
12 X 7 → we can halve 12 to get 6 X 7 = 42 and then double the answer to get 84.
We teach many different techniques of the 4 operators, and there is always more than 1 way of solving a question. We encourage students to suggest and use different methods.
Thru this, our students also learn that such creativity in solving question is applicable not only in math but in all aspects of life. This nurtures their creativity for future development.
At young age, if I know my compliments, 3+7=10, then 10-7 must be 3.
Or if I know 5 and 5 are compliments, then 5+4 = 9 as it is ONE less than compliment.
→ Seems easy enough for us, but this will bring your child a long way when problems in math becomes greater, such skills are applicable at all levels
Origination of Math Monkey
Math Monkey is a franchise education program from the US, with Professor Kenneth Williams on Board as the Chief Academic Officer. He has over 36years of research and teaching experience in the field of Vedic Math and is widely regarded as the GURU of Vedic Math.
At Math Monkey, we have combined the research based education of Vedic Math with the game-based lessons to encourage kids to enjoy and excel in math.
Most importantly, we believe that learning math should be a fun activity rather than conventional drilling commonly seen in other education centers.
We aim to instil the LOVE OF MATH in every child and take away their math-phobia
