Maths = Fun: Logical Thinking Skills
Ages 6-12 years old
Mathematics is a separate world, which allows us to better orient ourselves within the reality surrounding us. It is also the source of complex logical problems and puzzles, successful solving of which leaves us with unforgettable emotions, feelings of a winner and encourages confidence in our own abilities.
The main objective of the group workshops is to develop and encourage, in children, an interest for the subject of mathematics.
The emphasis of the workshops will be on problem and puzzle solving, demanding and encouraging concentration of logical thinking, which is a very important component in mathematics, and which, unfortunately, the main stream school structure does not have the capabilities to allow enough time and attention for.
The children have an opportunity for homework (upon request), which possibly they may find quite challenging. That is a perfectly natural process of acquiring new knowledge.
