Mathematics Enrichment with Eye Level

Basic Thinking Math ("BTM") enables students to complete the foundation of mathematics and covers the study areas of Numbers, Arithmetic, Measurement and Equations while Critical Thinking Math ("CTM") enables students to develop dept perception, problem solving, reasoning skills that covers Patterns and Relationships, Geometry, Measurement, Problem Solving and Reasoning. Because of the importance of BTM and CTM, Mommy Jane had registered 2 Little Angels, WH, aged 12 years old and WT, aged 9 years old for the combination of both concept with Eye Level since March this year. Do read up my previous post at  HERE. I think most of you will eager to know the results of this program which I will share it now.
WH hands-in his folder to instructor to start his class

An idea on what is Eye Level is all about. Eye Level is a systematic education program designed to help our children to develop mastery in Math. They emphasize on the importance of a solid foundation so that mastery of skills can continue as difficulty increases. Students are given a customized and individualized program to follow. Eye Level booklets are fairly self-explanatory and students are encouraged to complete as much of their work as possible through self-style and question exploration. Their instructor will be at hand to assist and guide the student, if necessary.
The Instructor is coaching the students with her lesson of the day

WT had started with Level 8 where he was exposed to blended learning. He used both the physical booklets and online learning room as part of his learning. Online Learning had encouraged him to improve on his mental calculation and as well as improve his speed. WT had done his level test last weekend and got a distinction of 91 marks out of 100 within the time limits. Congrats to WT for the achievement.

For WH, he started with Level 13 where he was exposed to multiplication of 2-digits with 2-digits and also multiplication of 3-digits with 2-digits. WH had sat for the level test last weekend too and if he pass, he will proceed to level 14 where he'll be learning division. The level test will also measure his timing and accuracy. He end up had a distinction too with 96 marks out of the full marks of 100 and had achieve it within the timeline.
WT is doing his assigned online work in class

I really can't believe it till I saw their results after attending the Eye Level Mathematics Program just for 3 months, their calculations had indeed improve so much. Both my Little Angels are more confidence now in doing Mathematics since they had a strong foundation after attending the program. 
WT's scored 100% and completed within 5 minutes 14 seconds for his online lesson. He also scored 100% for his assessment and managed to do it at only 24 seconds which is faster than the allocated times i.e. 30 seconds 

Eye Level assesses my Little Angels' mastery through evaluation of accuracy and speed. Accuracy is an indicator of my Little Angels' overall understanding of a concept and development of a skill, while speed indicates my Little Angels' comfort and confidence with the concepts as well as their ability to recall and apply previously mastered concepts. Mastery is important to ensure my Little Angels will have a smooth learning progression in future learning.
WH is doing critical thinking questions with his teaching tool

As both of my Little Angels' progress, they study and acquire knowledge for both the BTM and CTM elements. In addition to help them to improve their mathematical skills, the program also provides strategies that apply in all other subject areas.
WT is doing his critical thinking questions with his another teaching tools tool

The Eye Level program is designed to expand my Little Angels' perspectives by encouraging them to become self-motivated, independent and proactive learners and allowing them to be at the core of all the learning activities. Instructors offer support and guidance, while we as parents become involved in the program through maintaining frequent contact with the instructors to follow our child's progress.
Another student in the class is doing his critical thinking with a different teaching tool
At Eye Level, all the students receive personal attention from a trained and experienced Eye Level Instructor in a one-on-one environment with a small group of students sharing the classroom. Instructors are able to determine individual weaknesses through the Diagnostic Test which was taken before they started the program and it had provided a proven study solutions and tailored review assignments when necessary to strengthen weaker skills. The result is steady with an effective progress to master at each step along the way.  It had increase my Little Angels' concentration and their progress are more quickly through this concept. 
Some of the Motivational Quotes to inspire students as they are doing their work from "Did You Know" and the timer is provided in each desk so that students can practice timing  by themselves while they are doing the booklets. This is important practise so that the students will be able to complete their homework within a given time and it will also helps them to perform faster during the tests

Through Eye Level individualized coaching within a systemized program, it had encourage my Little Angels to study independently and to achieve a better result. Once they achieved a proven result for each classes, they were given a sticker as encouragement. With the stickers collected, they could redeem a gift. This will strengthen their skills and establish a routine of study and daily accomplishment.
The learning desk practiced in Eye Level is self-directed learning desk, where it has a closed structure and these desks will helps them to concentrate better when they are doing their work

The Eye Level curriculum is progressive. Subtle increases in difficulty in each level makes it easy for my Little Angels to learn. This allows them to become comfortable with all the necessary concepts before proceed to the next level. My Little Angels able to solve questions that are presented as variations of similar concepts.

The active use of learning materials creates a learning environment where my Little Angels had developed a critical and analytical thinking skills. This is accomplished through developing depth perception, location and spatial relationship skills, by utilizing their learning materials such as Numerical Figures, Blocks and Shapes, Clear Paper, Coloured Blocks, Mirror and Wooden Blocks. Difficulty and question variations are introduced systematically throughout all levels. It had helped my Little Angels on the power to think, analyze and apply what was learned not only in Maths but other subjects too at school.
The Class Flow
At Eye Level, students need to check-in using the computer system where we, parents will get an email confirming on the time and student's attendance to the class. Each student will then be assigned with an attendance code. They will then take their folder and hand-in their homework. The instructor will gave them some booklets to do and coach them before they start their work with the allocated times. Once completed, they need to key-out their attendance and take stickers. Stickers given will depend on their works whether they had submitted their homework, score 100% and complete work within time limit. If they pass the test level and during their birthday month, they will get 2 stickers instead. This will encourage the students to work harder to get the stickers so that they will be entitle to exchange a gift from Eye Level.
Key & World Sticker to encourage students to do their part to achieve the best result

With the stickers of a flag given, both my Little Angels, WH and WT will always compete who will get the most stickers by doing the work fast and accurate. They hope to exchange the completed stickers that they had stick around the world map with a gift that they had always wanted. They always look forward  to their Eye Level Math Program coz' the program was interesting and it is like playing games. Once they got the full marks within the allocated times, they'll feel very happy and show me the results that they had achieved. This had motivated them to work harder during the class and after their class.

You can also call them up at 1300-88-0909. Eye Level HQ is located at Bukit Damansara but they had outlets nationwide. Do check the locations near you at HERE.
See it to believe it. I never thought both my Little Angels could get above 90 marks in their Mathematics exam and they really did it after attending the 3 months program at Eye Level. I can see the significant improvement not only in the Basic Thinking Math but also on the Critical Thinking Math that helps them to be creative in everything that they did. It is recommended to start our child early as young as 3 years old but it is never too late to start the program to enrich our child and to build their confidence and self esteem in Mathematics with Eye Level.
