ABOUT US

Our Start

The journey of SumLogix started in 2010 with a desire to help children understand math rather than learn it through rote memorization of processes. We started teaching a handful of students of different ages using concrete materials, encouraging them to think through the concepts behind the math they were doing. When we saw the Aha! moments as they started understanding math, we knew that we were onto something.

Our Journey

Over the next few years, we taught hundreds of students from Grades 2-10, who came to us at different stages in their understanding of math and who studied math using various curricula. As we worked with each one of them, we saw their attitudes towards math change, and experienced the joy as their confidence and abilities grew. Now, we are continuing our journey with our online programs.

How can I help my child who is struggling in math?

A child who is struggling in math quickly becomes fearful of math, starts believing he or she is incapable of doing math and enters a negative feedback loop.   As the loop shows, a bad performance in math tests or a math class leads a child to lose confidence and believe that he or she is not smart enough to do math. This leads to the child avoiding math. The situation might be made worse by a parent or someone else berating a child for his/her bad performance. However, since concepts of ma ...

Are Multiple Choice Questions Good For Assessments and Learning?

Multiple choice questions or MCQs are used very frequently for assessments and learning. This is mainly because MCQs are easy to grade. Many math websites use MCQs for practicing basic math skills. While MCQs are convenient, we believe that their use as an assessment tool might not reveal the true picture of a child’s understanding of concepts and their use as a learning tool does not do much to enhance a child’s learning. The three major issues with MCQs are: 1. Ability to guess and use ans ...

How can I help my child improve in math?

The simple answer is, “Practice, practice and practice.” While the key to getting better lies in these words, these words just scratch the surface of what it takes to become good at math. The key lies in the answer to this question, “What is your child actually practicing?” Math problems help develop three key skills. These are: 1. Computation Skills – These are skills where you learn a process for doing something. For example, learning to multiply large numbers, doing division or ...

Is my child in a growth or a fixed mindset?

This is a follow-up blog to our previous blog on growth and fixed mindset. You can read that blog here. As a recap, according to Dr. Carol Dweck’s research, children with a growth mindset believe that their intelligence grows when they challenge themselves. They believe that extrinsic factors that they control, such as, hard work and persistence, lead to success. On the other hand, children with a fixed mindset believe that they are born with certain attributes and talents, such as, intelligen ...

Math and Growth vs. Fixed Mindset

Do you know that your child’s “mindset”, which affects the way your child approaches challenges, is more important than his or her intellectual abilities in determining his or her future success? Dr. Carol Dweck from Stanford University has conducted extensive research on the mindset of children. She has identified two types of mindsets: “Growth” and “Fixed”. Based on Dr. Dweck’s research, the following lists contrast some of the characteristics of children with growth and fixe ...
