Our Mission: Math for Life
In Japan, educators believe learning math is no different from learning basic social skills, both of which are necessary in everyday life. Japan Math follows the lead of these instructors, offering teaching materials that utilize their methodology.
This type of instruction is based on the idea that math is all around us. Each day, we’re presented with situations that require us to calculate, measure, draw, or apply logic based on numerical data. Especially in today’s rapidly changing world, we’re constantly confronted with problems that don’t have clear answers. In these situations, math can be a powerful tool to help us think, investigate, test hypotheses and work in cooperation with others.
But more than necessary, math can also be made interesting. There can be joy in solving problems on your own. While solving problems, you may also stumble on some beauty or profundity expressed through mathematics. Japanese educators want children to experience these pleasures and use what they learn as a lifelong resource for enriching their lives, rather than dismissing it as one of many school curricula. As a result, our educational motto is: Math for Life — a solid foundation for a bright future.
