“Pure mathematics, in its way, is the poetry of logical ideas.”
-Albert Einstein

Math teaches logic and order. The discipline of mind that children develop in a math class carries over into their everyday life.

A child’s mathematical power includes the ability to explore, conjecture, and reason logically; to solve routine problems; to communicate about and through mathematics; and to construct ideas within mathematics and between other intellectual activities. Mathematical power also involves "the development of personal self confidence and a disposition to seek, evaluate, and use quantitative and spatial information in solving problems and in making decisions."

Development, nourishment and enhancement of this mathematical power in a child is the aim of teaching this subject at our school. Students’ flexibility, perseverance, interest, curiosity, and intuitiveness are all ignited when he/she is given a math assignment to be done independently.

Children develop critical thinking skills and begin to appreciate that there are multiple ways to arrive at a solution to a problem. This vital lesson learnt in Mathematics is critical in developing a child’s attitude to real life challenges outside the classroom too.

The anxiety associated with mathematics is often associated with how math is taught. Knowing how children learn and understanding how the brain searches for, processes, and then organizes information, we aim to keep ‘mathphobia’ at bay.
