##### KINDERGARTEN MATHS (K1-K3)

An interactive and fun class for young students to build up their foundation in maths from where they can develop important skills for their future.

The Kindergarten Maths course is designed to introduce very young students to the daily encountering of mathematics in life such as concepts like size, width, patterns, days in a calendar, plane and solid figures, informal logical reasoning and picture graphs. These topics set their foundation in maths and will provide a strong preparation as they advance into primary maths. The strand-based curriculum used in the course emphasizes introductory material on sets, arithmetic, fractions, geometry, measurement, logic and statistics. Students learn through interactive fun games and activities specifically designed to give your child a head start in their academic life.

##### Sample topics covered:
• Comparing size, width, height
