Japanese Math Academy Now Enrolling Grade 1, 2, 3 and selected 4
Japanese Math Academy is a new after school math enrichment program for grades 1 through 6. The JMA program is founded on high quality content and proven techniques in teaching problem solving based on “wa-san” or Japanese math developed in the 1400s. Without calculators and algebra, the students tackled problems by visualizing relationships of changing values and applied the technique to solve different problems of increasing difficulty. By the end of the year, your children will learn to solve seemingly difficult mathematical concepts with ease. The program is currently offered to grades 1 through 4. Spaces are limited. Visit us at www.japanesemath.org. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, call or text 617.396.0991.
