Mathazone is a special program by which preschool students are taught mathematics with the help of stories. The children are given the problems faced by the members of Mathazone forest, and they solve these problems by associating them with their own lives and using mathematical concepts. The program aims to teach mathematics not as a sequence of calculations but as a way of thinking. Through Mathazone children learn the language of mathematics, improve their analytical thinking skills, and lay a strong foundation for their lifelong mathematics learning.
Each story in this program follows the curriculum of the program to enable the comprehension of mathematical concepts.
All members of the Mathazone Forest encounter daily problems and solve these problems by using a host of mathematical concepts. With the help of these stories, the children can easily associate the basic mathematical terms with their lives. For example, instead of learning how to count through ordinary methods or flashcards, the children learn how to count and numbers by being a rabbit in the Mathazone forest and counting the trees. With Mathazone, learning is always very fun, which is one of the most important features that differentiates this program from other methods of learning.
The Mathazone is developed as a way of thinking, and it aims to:
– Teach children the language of maths,
– Develop analytical thinking skills,
– Introduce the basic concepts that lay the foundation of lifelong mathematics learning.
