Math Training + Confidence = Success
The importance of education for today’s youth cannot be overstated, particularly where math skills are concerned. Tutoring or courses outside basic school work can be an excellent way to reinforce budding mathematical skills, but a Canadian math enrichment company takes this a step further.
Spirit of Math offers programs designed – not only to improve mathematical aptitude – but to teach students how to learn, how to face challenges and how to work with others. Former junior high math teacher Charles Ledger created the program to use a balance of drills, problem solving, core curriculum and cooperative work.
Showing His Work
His teaching method’s results are reflected in his students winning over 80% of Ontario Championships in 13 years of competitions. Spirit of Math students have earned more than 5,000 placements, medals and certificates in national and international math competitions in the past five years. Parents rave about kids’ increased confidence, abilities, and fascination with Spirit of Math’s programs.
Spirit of Math Resources for Students and Educators
Spirit of Math has campuses across Canada and expanding into the United States for grades K-12. Gifted and bright students find the shared experience of a classroom setting deepens their knowledge. Summer day camps are offered with themes like chess, engineering and robotics.
The program includes training for educators to put the methods to use in their own classrooms, parent workshops, a series of workbooks for homeschooling and additional enrichment for students called Releasing the Genius, and the Spirit of Math Drills app.
Crunching the Numbers
Spirit of Math Schools have been named among ProfitGuide’s Profit 500’s Fastest Growing Companies for three years’ running. This distinction in the Canadian publication is reserved for startups and entrepreneurs whose sales grew by 686% over the previous five-year period – proving that providing tomorrow’s leaders with exceptional mathematical abilities is a sound investment on multiple levels.
