Our Program Is Unique & Produces Well-Rounded Students
Spirit of Math offers math enrichment with a difference. Many programs tackle only a single part of mathematics by just using worksheets or by only teaching mental calculation techniques. For more than 30 years, Spirit of Math has been offering a uniquely balanced and comprehensive curriculum that captures the very essence of math (Spirit of Math), teaching DRILLS, CORE CURRICULUM and PROBLEM SOLVING while promoting cooperation, strategical thinking and inspiring confidence.
We also rock Mental Math – it’s competitive and fun, combining elements from our program such as drills, core curriculum and problem solving skills.
We integrate essential math skills that help promote fundamental life skills
WHAT IS MENTAL MATH?
Spirit of Math classes end with Mental Math equations posed to the class as a whole, by either the teacher or a student. The questions require students to use what they’ve learned in our math program, along with their sharpened listening skills.

DRILLS: Teach fluency and automaticity. In simple language, practicing our drills makes it easy to have math facts, like multiplication tables, ready in your mind so you can learn the more complex math material. Drills also help increase speed and accuracy when solving problems. Whether you’re in Kindergarten or in University, it’s a base that matters and stays with you. Our approach to drills is a complete system that we designed from the ground up, promoting students to work together to achieve new goals in the classroom.
CORE CURRICULUM: Delves into math from the earliest grades, by engaging our students and ensuring they understand the core principles of our mathematics the lessons. This in-depth of understanding is then put into practice with challenging problem solving and cooperative group work.
PROBLEM SOLVING: Spirit of Math is unique and hardly routine, students learn to read critically, to think creatively, to work cooperatively and to press on when the answer isn’t immediately obvious. In every grade our students complete a minimum of 400 competition level problems over the course of the year, and also apply their skills in international and national math contests.
With Spirit of Math’s unique teaching methods, our students become well-rounded and learn how to share their ideas while learning from their teachers and their peers. Students are encouraged to discuss their homework, collaboratively problem-solve in class and present their results to their classmates. By promoting strategic thinking and a cooperative classroom environment, students organically gain confidence and learn skills that go beyond mathematics, which will benefit them in all aspects of their academic and personal careers.
Spirit of Math promotes co-operation, inspires confidence, and releases the genius in every child.
