Five years ago, Ike decided to share his mathematical prowess with one and all, by publishing a book entitled '25

Math Short Cuts,' demand for which has been so high that it's now on its fifth printing.

The project includes a research component to address how an intentionally designed informal-learning environment affects adult perception of their own ability to support their children's

math learning.

Susan Levine, a developmental psychologist at the University of Chicago and study co-author, added, "With the app, math-anxious parents have a chance to see their children engaging productively in mathematical thinking, which leads them to change the way they think about their children's ability to achieve in

math."

For the past three years, Spirit of

Math has been selecting and training Team Canada that has won medals repeatedly in this global

math competition.

One teaching method that is gaining popularity among our

math teachers is the so-called Singapore

math.

Motion

Math is Curriculum Associates' second acquisition.

While educators desire that new national standards will make children more motivated for, and globally competitive in

math, one could argue that standards alone do not improve

math knowledge.

"If you wait until high school to attempt to produce accelerated

math learners," Loh said, "the latecomers will find themselves missing too much foundational thinking and will struggle, with only four short years before college, to catch up." The article goes on to say it's rare for a student to move from being "good at

math" in a regular public high school to finding a place in the advanced-math community.

Adds Susan Levine, Rebecca Anne Boylan Professor of Education and Society in Psychology: "Math-anxious parents may be less effective in explaining

math concepts to children, and may not respond well when children make a mistake or solve a problem in a novel way."

McKellar goes on to say that

math builds confidence, helps with everyday tasks such as cooking measurements and budgeting, and spawns logical thinking.

"Math-anxious parents may be less effective in explaining

math concepts to children and may not respond well when children make a mistake or solve a problem in a novel way," said Levine, professor of education and society in psychology.

"Sony Global Education's, mission to inspire a passion for learning right across the world resonates with ours and we are eager to work together, beginning with Global

Math Challenge.
