NIMka Vs Traditional Math

Regular Math   NIMka Math
Uses Board & Chalk for teaching.   We have a laboratory method of teaching.
All diagrams are 2D.   All shapes are shown as 3D models.
Abstracts like "x" and "y" are taught as plain theory classes.   NIMka concrete 3D Models give size, shape & dimensions to 'x' & 'y'
Activity, at the most would involve some drawings.   Every class has activity time, where children experience touch and feel models.
Teacher's instructional Methodology in typically one-way communication.   A student experiences interactive learning 50% of the time.
Children are given regular practices on sums & home work.   All sums & problems are graded as Simple, Moderate & difficult.
Most Sums & Problems are routine.   Most sums/ problems require innovative thinking and sharpness to tackle.
Chapter heading themselves are confusing & curriculum mixes up various concepts.   Each Concept is tackled in a different chapter for clearer understanding.
Stress is on direct application of formulas & theorems.   Mastering the skill to apply mind, for simplification of complex statements.
Overall impression of Math is that, it's a tedious subject & requires lots of hard work.   Math is useful in Life ! And it's Pretty interesting too !

When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in 7 years.

Mark Twain

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

Albert Einstein

The second most important job in the world, second Only to being a good parent, is being a good teacher.

S.G. Ellis

Mathematicians are like Frenchmen: whatever you say to them they translate into their own language and forthwith it is something entirely different.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Children learn as they play. Most importantly, In play children learn how to learn.
