Enrolling into our SMART Academy program does not need any specific qualification other than your child should be between 4 - 16 years old. SMART Academy program is designed to accommodate all these age groups and everyone will start from the beginning. Since the SMART Academy way of learning includes new techniques on solving calculations, you will notice the improvement daily.
SMART Academy Mental Arithmetic and Brain Developement program is divided into Three programs: Kinder (boys and girls 4 to 7 years) ,Junior (from 7 to 16) and Senior (from 16 to 99)
SMART Academy Kinder designed to accommodate the children between 4 to 7 years of age. This group is divided into 10 levels which spreads over 2 hours a week. Each level may take upto 4 months to complete where as our experience shows that from level 3 onwards children successfully completes each level in 3 months time. Kinder is filled with Arithmetic related fun games and lots of interactive activities. Children enjoys the session and learn without realising. Most of the parents have noticed the improvements within their child's calculation solving ability.
SMART Academy Junior
SMART Academy Junior is designed for the children with the age between 7-16. It is structured into 8 levels, with a commitment of 2 hours per week. Levels 1 and 2 have a duration of 4 months and the other levels are 3 months. After 8 levels, students will be able to add, subtract, multiply, divide, do percentages, square roots, powers, fractions, decimals and combined operations.

SMART Academy Senior is structured into 8 levels, with a commitment of 2 hours per week. Levels 1 and 2 have a duration of 4 months and the other levels are 3 months. After 8 levels, participants will be able to add, subtract, multiply, divide, do percentages, square roots, powers, fractions, decimals and combined operations.
The Program Curriculum
The Finger Method - The child is initially taught to count from 0 - 99 using his fingers. This hands on experience makes the child understand the concept of numbers. It is then trained to do addition and subtraction using the SMART Academy concept. Once these calculations are learned by the child, only then, will he be introduced to the Soroban.
The Soroban:- The use of the Soroban is the next step in learning arithmetic. Here the child is taught to transfer the theory of the finger method to the Soroban board. The child is taught the basic movements of the Soroban beads. The child at the end of the term can now calculate addition and subtraction from 1 to 1000.
Mental Arithmetic:- Here the child is taught to visualize the Soroban beads in his mind and calculate. He is trained to do the calculations mentally by using the visual Soroban beads in his mind (FLASH ANZAN). The method of multiplication is now introduced to the child.
The child continues to master the concept of Mental Arithmetic. The division method of calculation is now introduced and taught to the child. The attention is centred on complex and challenging mathematical numbers to enable the child to acquire a complete mastery on his basic concepts.
Term 5 - 12
The visualization of the functions of Mathematics four basic operations method is established. The lessons are concentrated on larger and more complex numbers. The learner is required to complete it with speed and accuraccy.
