  Problem Solving & Critical Thinking - Challenging Word Problems, Pattern Solving and Much more!

  • Gradewise Challenging word problems!  
  • Bar modeling/heuristic approach is used to make complex word problems more visual and easy to solve (Heuristic is a mental shortcut that allows people to solve problems and make judgments quickly and efficiently.)
  • Develop strong understanding of number bonds, an essential concept in math
  • Learn Pattern Solving
  • Improves Problem Solving and Critical Thinking skills
  • Kids who participate in Perennial Math competition does this course according to their grade level.  Few of them have won the competitions locally and as high as 2nd place nationally

    P.S.: We do not train kids for any competitions but this course has been very helpful in competitions. 

Alert: Check the table of contents below to make sure you request an appropriate level for your child.  It is recommended that your child has completed a particular grade before doing the Process Skills for the same grade.  For example, child rising to 2nd grade needs to enroll in Process Skills 1 and child rising to 3rd grade needs to enroll in Process Skills 2 unless child really has the knowledge of those topics and are one grade ahead in his or her math. 

Teacher will NOT be teaching in depth topics instead teacher will teach how to approach different kinds of word problems and pattern solving for those topics.  Hence prior knowledge of those topics is essential. 

LOM's math is known for it's higher level of curriculum and it's methodology.
