Key Math Skills
In MJM, we provide our students, as young as four years old, with opportunities to discover mathematical knowledge and the ability to apply them correctly. We at MJM will help prepare our pre-primary students hone their abilities to classify, compare, analyze parts and whole, identifying patterns and relationships, induce, deduce, generalize, and spatially visualize problems which in turn, drastically improves their thinking skills as a whole. As we train and sharpen their thinking skills, we will also help our students develop strong connections, the ability to discern and identify patterns and relationships between interrelating ideas lifted from a wide range of subjects.
Older children at primary levels will be trained and exposed to a variety of key mathematical skills to improve their critical and logical problem solving abilities.
Firstly, we sharpen their Mathematical reasoning skill to demonstrate an understanding and analyze mathematical scenarios so as to build logical arguments from the situation given. It can be reinforced as a habit by learning how to properly utilize this basic mathematical skill in everyday situations.
After the students are able to properly reason mathematically, we will help them express mathematical concepts logically, precisely and accurately and, hence, teach them to communicate the mathematics language effectively.
Finally, for the students to see the bigger picture, we will teach them to wield mathematics as a tool, applying their reasoning and communication abilities in solving mathematics problems involving not only pen-and-paper problems, but also things that affect the world around them. This would give the students opportunity to innovate existing methods and technologies by studying a variety of problems, including open-ended and real-world problems.
When the solution to a given problem is not obvious, we will teach the students apply Heuristics methods. This allows the students to properly formulate inferences and hypotheses from any given situation, make predictions, and produce a valid conclusion. These include using a representation (e.g. drawing a diagram, tabulating), making a guess (e.g. trial and error or guess and check, making a supposition), walking through the process (e.g. acting it out, working backwards) and changing the problem (e.g. simplifying the problem, considering special cases).
