Methodology & Curriculum

Because We Kindle Imagination…

Interactive Math Academy is pioneering learning programs that leverage a unique combination of human interaction and visualization  to offer personalized learning programs. We emphasize on child’s thinking process in arriving a solution instead of looking at the final answer. This is what make us stand out from other after-school “learning centers”.

We believe that engaging the students including asking intriguing questions stimulates child’s thinking and reasoning ability.  We attempt to develop a habit of understanding “why” behind concepts, making them life-long learners and problem solvers. We demonstrate various methods and techniques to understand and solve the problem while visualizing the problem.

Our curriculum is based on Singapore Math curriculum. It aligns very well with our teaching philosophy, especially visualization and connecting Math with real-world examples. Visual learners retain more and longer. We selected the books which are uncluttered, aesthetically pleasing and have a logical ordering of topics.  Per results from OECD  and TIMSS, Singapore Math’s proven CPA approach has earned it top rank in the world. Many schools around the country are adopting Singapore Math Curriculum in pursuit of better quality education.

How it works?

1. Singapore Math Placement Assessment
Placement Assessment is designed to identify your child’s proficiency level and gaps in concept understanding.

2. Discuss Personalized Lesson Plan
An advisor will review the results and discuss your child’s personalized lesson plan with you and answer questions.

3. Meet Your Math Tutor and Start Learning
We’ll place your child with our math tutor that will be best suited for your child needs.

Connected Learning Cycle

1. Singapore Math curriculum is a super set of Common Core – state and country standards.

2. Our math homework is tailored to your child’s needs including homework help and test prep.

3. Your math tutor writes specific feedback daily to ensure learning focus at right areas.

4. Through one or more weekly sessions with your child, you math tutor explains concepts visually.

5. In addition to regular assessments, your child teacher periodically connects with you regarding your child’s progress.

6. Recurring tests and assessments increase your child confidence and re-enforce conceptual knowledge.
