IDEA MATH provides extensive curriculum. Our courses are intended for able students desiring to expand their mathematics knowledge beyond regular classroom settings. We emphasize study skills (such as taking notes, oral and written presentations, and listening, observing, and organization etc.). We believe in studying math via problem solving as a medium to develop students' learning interests.
Including visual problem-solving activities, outdoor maths challenges, crack the code activities, number puzzles and more, our Year 1 and Year 2 Maths Problem-Solving worksheets are all teacher-designed and made to improve your student's analytical problem-solving skills. What are Maths Problem-Solving Activities? Problem-solving activities base mathematical development on what the students.
