Mathnasium follows its own curriculum, which differentiate us from other learning centers and private tutors. We are the first center in Oman that provides such specialized curriculum.
Mathnasium curriculum is independent from any school curriculum (American, British, International, amongst others). Anyhow, we make sure that children do not get confused! A joint effort and collaboration between parents, students and Mathnasium teachers will better gear the design of each tailor-made learning plan and ensure a complete alignment with school materials and program.
The heart of the Mathnasium curriculum is comprised of Counting, Wholes & Parts, and Proportional Thinking & Change:
Counting is the ability to count from any number, to any number, by any number. It’s the times tables (counting by 1, 2, 3… all the way to 12). Ultimately, it is the prediction, interpretation, and creation of patterns.
Wholes & Parts
Knowledge of wholes and parts is the ability to “see” wholes and parts in a given question, and to utilize the ideas “the whole equals the sum of its parts” and “each part equals the whole minus all of the other parts” to answer the question at hand. It’s the basis for fractions, decimals, and all equations that are balanced parts of a whole.
Proportional Thinking & Change
Proportional thinking and change is the ability to compare numbers by division and by subtraction, and to use this knowledge to solve problems by “reasoning in groups.” Parts of the whole act in proportion to one another like the gears of a clock or geometric shapes coming together into a single form.
