The new year ahead promises to be an interesting one in the mathematical world, particularly as the new Core Math and other Core Curriculum subjects are tested to their full. This is/was one of the most controversial topics of 2013, not just for math but for the entire American educational system. Students from the US were among the lowest ranked in the whole world when 15-year-olds were tested. Of course, Asian students remain some of the most affluent in the world, outperforming all other nations with ease.
Our BeijingMath program is tailored to be as rigorous as the Chinese national curriculum so any Core Math changes will be moot. However, we welcome any changes that make the curriculum more challenging, and maybe even more difficult. There have been arguments for both sides of the story, with a seemingly equal amount of opponents and proponents. Regardless of individuals’ views only time will tell if things have changed for the better.
Even if the new system fails to deliver, something needs to be done…..and fast
Performing poorly in almost every subject is not something to be taken lightly and at BeijingMath we feel this makes it more essential that Chinese students studying in America use our program. This will ensure that they are regularly challenged to their full potential, irrespective of their coursework. It’s no secret that Asian students take education more seriously than the rest of the world, and that hard work WILL lead to a prosperous future.
China has one of the strongest economies in the entire world now, thanks to their stringent educational systems and a go-to attitude that is second to none. We are not saying that the American educational system is flawed in any way; however, facts and figures don’t lie. The drastic overhaul to a Core Curriculum is a clear indication that something is wrong. Let’s hope that it does make a difference.
Our math program is tailored to keep students performing well in all aspects of mathematics, and those who use our program regularly have nothing to worry about when it comes to their school’s curriculum. It gives students questions based on their previous answers, with progressively more difficult ones when answering correctly and slightly easier ones when answering incorrectly. This has the advantage of keeping them motivated without being disheartened by too many wrong answers. More importantly, it allows parents/teachers to assess which areas of math each student needs further tuition in. Knowing exactly which areas of math each person is struggling in is vital for keeping them up-to-speed with the rest of their class.
Even though our program has been designed with the rigors of the Chinese curriculum, that doesn’t mean it’s targeted specifically at people from China. Anyone can use it with ease and those who do will notice significant improvements with their regular coursework. We guarantee that any student using our program regularly will ALWAYS outperform the rest of their class. Unless other students in the class are using our program too, then it will be a close call!
