How many times have you heard someone say, “I’m not a math person”? We often make the mistake of labeling our abilities in math as fixed entities, when in fact the skills that underlie math can be practiced and developed. A child struggling in math could be experiencing challenges with any number of skills from spatial reasoning to working memory to executive functioning.
Based on over 50,000 hours of research, LEAP 3.0 uses targeted exercises to strengthen the cognitive skills required for efficient problem-solving. Rather than simply addressing surface-level difficulties with math, LEAP 3.0 provides a highly customized and rigorous curriculum to train the brain and overcome math challenges at their roots.
Some students have a harder time visualizing numbers. This makes it hard for them not only to make a connection between numbers and symbols but to determine how long 5 minutes feels or what 3 feet looks like. In addition to struggling in math, students with difficulty visualizing numbers often experience challenges with time management, sports that require estimating speed or distance, and reading directions.
Students who complete LEAP 3.0 experience:
Beyond fundamentally understanding math concepts, efficient problem-solving requires fluency in operations and basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. Your working memory allows you to hold information in your head long enough to perform an operation, apply a concept, or complete a step in a problem.
LEAP 3.0 helps students to develop:
Even a student with strong comprehension and mental math abilities can struggle with breaking down the steps in a problem, showing work in an organized way, or double-checking answers. Thus, executive functioning often dictates whether a student can truly demonstrate his or her knowledge in math.
