Origami Math

Overview

Why should kids join this program?

As we look around us, from buildings to mountains, from planes to birds, shapes are everywhere. As we can realise, shapes manifest their purpose either as functional or aesthetic or both. They appeal to the human mind very strongly. Kids, particularly, are naturally adept at recognising shapes and patterns around them.

In this course kids explore and understand the basics of geometrical shapes, particularly, polygons. They try their hands at Origami, a skill that feeds on creativity and patience, to help understand geometry.

Foundation is very important for kids to build up their knowledge. Without that your kid will have struggle throughout school years and there after. I feel all kids around the world should get opportunities to learn from Mango education.

Santhi Sugumar

Both my son and daughter enjoys attending the science and math classes conducted by mango education. It is more of active learning where the kids are more curious in knowing things. Obuli and Arumugam keeps the children more energetic and enthusiastic.

There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres.
