MATH STORIES EXPLANATION
Remembering math facts, or questions like 5×7 or 8×9 is hard, very hard for most kids. Essentially these math questions are lines on a page. Writing the number 8 has no connection to what 8 things might look like. It is simply a symbol, an abstract symbol, that we chose to represent an amount. Just like some of us would wonder why the Chinese symbol for moon looks like a stepladder, it makes no sense why two circles on top of each other would represent the number of legs on a spider. Asking children to memorize the math facts is like asking them to learn a new language. Some, less than one third, will be able to. For most however, this is a very daunting task.
This program has been done with thousands of children, including an entire K-6 school of 600+ kids who on average became at least 5x faster at math.
KENZY METHODS | BASIC FACT COURSES
Here you will find unique, full programs to help your child learn the four basic facts of math including:
KENZY MULTIPLICATION and
KENZY DIVISION (BETA VERSION).
KENZY METHODS EXPLANATION
Kenzy simply means a 'shortcut' method. Kids around 8 or 9 years should know the times tables of by heart, which means a question like 6x7 should take them less than 3 seconds to answer. The reality is most kids will take more than 15 or 30 seconds and often even longer or cannot get to the answer at all. Counting fingers or drawing lines on the paper are traditional ways of solving that just don't work. Though these strategies seem 'out-of-the-box', they are incredibly effective. With a little practice kids can solve these same questions easily in under 10 seconds. With the right amount of practice they can reach the mastery level answer all the questions, not just the 2's or 5's, in under 3 seconds and many get to where they can answer in under a second. This is so important because it frees up so much energy and space in the mind that was taken up by unnecesarry mental calculation using slow methods. Students can focus more on the equations and problems with more accuracy and less effort. This leads to higher marks, more success and ultimately more confidence.
