CMA's curriculum is Unique
CMA curriculum is known for its two-hand, four finger abacus training. It integrates online practice and multi media learning to enhance student progress.
Our ability based programme means students can start anytime and be promoted to the next level at their own pace.
Our courses also take into account children and adults of different age groups so that their learning curve will be further enhanced.
Courses are categorised from Grade 13 down to the highest Grade 1 Level. Thereafter, students can further challenge themselves to the DAN level from 1 to 10.
On every Quarter, students will be assessed by CMA on exams where they must score at least 70% to pass and receive a Certificate of Recognition. They can continue to sit for higher Grading papers as they progress on.
We conduct events to celebrate student success such as our National Arithmetic Competition where parents, students and teachers from 23 centres gather to promote closer bond and learning experiences.
Courses offered by CMA include:
PROGRAMME OVERVIEWKindy Programme seeks to uncover and groom potential students in mental arithmetic from a very young age. They will indulge in songs and physical activities, where they can be affirmed positively to build up their confidence in learning mental arithmetic. The learning process is fun and stress free in a conducive environment. Class is conducted on a weekly basis where they will learn to write numbers, basic abacus fingering techniques and others. This programme will lay the foundation to stimulate their creativity and visualization abilities.
PROGRAMME ELIGIBILITYThe programme is for children from 3 - 4.5 years old. This may include children who may not be ready to adapt to a Kinder Class programme.
PROGRAMME OVERVIEWThis programme builds the cornerstone in the mental mind of pre-schoolers to use two-hand four fingers to perform mental calculations. They will be trained to do a series of simple addition and subtraction through the use of CMA methodology. This is achieved by the use of abacus and creative visualization to capture the images in their mind. This is the start where they can eventually accomplish speedy calculations using mental arithmetic at the higher levels.
PROGRAMME ELIGIBILITYThis ability based programme is for children below 6 years old. They must be able to write numerals from 0 to 9. Children below age of 5 will also sit for an assessment test to ensure they can be fairly adaptable when doing basic abacus training.
PROGRAMME OVERVIEWGiven our ability based programme, different age group will start off with some difference in their training programme. However, they will get to the same platform as they advance to the higher levels. This programme is for primary schoolers who can start off at a faster pace. They will be trained similarly to build up their foundation in mental calculations.
PROGRAMME ELIGIBILITYThis ability based programme is for children aged 7 to 13yrs old.
