PineconeMath Fun for Children

Math is Easy, when Taught in the Right Way

Make kids love Math and you'll soon find them excelling in Math skills. This takes quite a bit of time; but, at the end of it, it proves to be fruitful!

Fun Math at Home

» Start Teaching Early As a toddler, your child observes and learns fast. You can improve his/her number sense in many ways. Show him number blocks, shapes and read numbers aloud. These make lots of difference!

» Make math a game Let your child access digital games, apps and the also use a huge number of activity books.

» Make math a part of daily life. Ask them to check and compare prices at the grocery store, let them count the mail boxes on the street while you drive down or even try to measure food or drink at the dinner table.

» Math Competition & Rewards Once the kids become comfortable with Math, try to have a competition when the friends come over. Give a nice reward to the winner.
Pinecone Making Math Fun

At Pinecone Active Learning, we work with our children to help them to understand, apply and master the principle of mathematics. We do not just teach mathematics, we make it an enjoyable and challenging exercise in which the teachers are also participants.

For example, to many children this problem - may seem hard (even for kids in the 8th grade and above).
A water tank has the shape of a rectangular prism of base 50 cm2. This tank is being filled at the rate of 12 liters per minutes. Find the rate at which the height of the water in the water tank increases; express your answer in millimeters per second.
At Pinecone this is an enjoyable challenge, where students are able to find solutions and happiness comes alongside.

"Ever since I have been learning at Pinecone, I have very much seen an increase on my grades so far. I have advanced to Gold Honor Roll before but also AFTER I participated in Pinecone. Not only I improved, but I have kept the grades and kept my honor roll at the Pinecone Learning center. My name is Erica Nguyen and I am very thankful that Pinecone has lead me to many,many successes."

~ Erica Nguyen

"I am back in school again, senior year! It's pretty exciting to almost be done with high school. Algebra 2 went well this summer, I received a B+! I hope you are doing well, and thank you again! If it was not for your help, I know I would not have done too good."

Pinecone Learning - Where Your Children's Tomorrow Begin

childPinecone's methodology is to run the two foundation programs of Math and Reading at a pace which allows the child to assimilate the subject matter and apply the newly acquired skills to practical problem solving. The coaching is structured so that the child is able to reason for him/herself to achieve the highest level of comprehension. Regular practice and support instill self confidence and stimulate an eagerness to progress to the next level. Each student is guided to anticipate and surmount hurdles consistent with present day education. The end result is a happy and confident child who is justifiably proud of his or her academic achievements.
