Do you want your child to have a strong foundation in math? Does your child lack math confidence? Math is the ‘Jenga subject’ – mastering the fundamentals early on is critical to keep your tower from toppling. It’s a truly humbling experience when your child asks for help on a math problem and you draw a complete blank! That’s where we come in!
Math is cumulative, falling behind can make it difficult to catch back up. Fundamental math skills are also important to success later in life. Most importantly, repeated underperformance in math can seriously impact self-esteem.
Math doesn't have to be hard or intimidating.
Success in math requires a solid foundation.
We'll help you master the current level and get started on the next
As Singapore entered the 1980s their students were not competitive in math. They weren’t even internationally rated. At this point the country decided to make a change and adopted a new/innovative math approach.
After the introduction of what is now known as Singapore math the country has been consistently rated in the top 10. Compare this to the US math which struggles to reach the top 10 consistently.
What makes Singapore math different? Math is a cumulative learning process. Singapore math focuses on mastery of core building blocks at each level which are important for success going forward. The goal is to understand how the math works versus simply passing the next grade level test.

Most colleges use placement exams as a core factor in admissions — particularly for Math and English. A great academic record can be undermined with a poor placement exam result.
Placement tests are unlike high school exams that assess particular learning. Placement exams assess general knowledge, which can make it harder for a student to prepare. Fortunately, Calculating Minds offers personalized coaching and online resources to ensure the best result.
