Five (5) Foundational Skills in Math (The Eurekan Way!)
1. Good foundation in Mathematics
One of the major reasons why students hate Math is the lack of good foundation. Teachers in Eureka are well aware of this, and thus try to eradicate this fear by instilling the right attitude among students. How? Well, practice makes perfect!
2. Advanced Learning
Tutors in Eureka come from the most distinguished universities such as University of the Philippines, Ateneo De Manila University, and other prestigious universities in the country. Thus, students are guaranteed quality tutorials from experienced and competent tutors equipped to handle students even from International Schools such as Brent international School, International School of Manila, Southville Inernational School, as well as exclusive schools such as PAREF Southridge and Woodrose, Xavier University and De La Salle Zobel to name a few.
3. Adoption of Singapore Math
Singapore is a country known to have the best Math program in the world.Singapore math is the teaching method used from pre-school to elementary in Singapore. It basically involves three steps: concrete, pictorial and abstract. Initially, the students are instructed to use concrete things such as match sticks, dice, or chips to be able to visualize better the concepts. Then, they are to express mathematical concepts through drawing. When they already grasped the concepts, they are to solve problems in an abstract way by using numbers and symbols.
Eureka adopts the Singaporean Math as an alternative to traditional Math programs in the country.
4. Effective Appreciation of the Field of Mathematics
Kids nowadays are proven to be more visual – they tend to learn more using images and videos. Eureka! offers Math tutorials not in the conventional “give-a-problem-then-solve” way. Teaches in Eureka! use technology in the teaching and learning of Mathematics. Examples of these are videos of Math applications, pictures of everyday Math problems, and graphs shown by software.
5. Development of Critical Skills and Abstract Reasoning
Laboratory classes are not only for Science classes. Tutors encourage students to find ways to answer simple real life problems using Mathematics. By recognizing that there are different ways of solving a particular problem, tutors encourage critical reasoning through engaging and challenging exercises that are open- ended.Tutors act as guides to help students discover answers by themselves. Ultimately, Eureka aims to impart passion in Mathematics among students while developing their critical and abstract reasoning skills.
