Recently I am always hearing fingermath method among the parents. I am so curious about it, coz never know it before. The parents said , it's the new method for teaching the children about mathematic. 'Really?? ' I said. 'Yes!!' They explain it as far as I remember here there are : for example , the multiply. 7 x 8 = 56, we symbolize the 7 as two fingers of left hand which are thumb and pointer are opening, and we symbolize 8 as three fingers of right hand which are thumb, pointer and mid finger are opening. So left hand we have 2 opening fingers and 3 closing fingers, right hand has 3 opening fingers and 2 closing fingers. Then we add the opening fingers 2 + 3 = 5 then we multiply the closing fingers 3 x 2 = 6. Put the opening fingers' result infront of the closing fingers' result, now we have 56 then. Unbelievable...... Right? You can try with other multiply e.g 6 x 6 or 9 x 9 or etc. FYI : this is only for multiply among this group of numbers 6,7,8,9. I think I will find out. I think I will learn more about this method. Perhaps if you read and and read again my post you will get what I mean.

We are a christian school that established in 1982. The education field that we focus in are kindergarten, arithmathics, and reading-writing, and we are also developing our childs' skill in drawing and coloring. Hopefully we do the best for the children.
