My grandson came on leaps and bounds with SAMSON last school year.
Flipcharts have helped my mental agility; they are getting me to understand and I'm getting better and faster scores. I am quite confident at dividing and multiplying and I use Big Guy number bond.
I just wanted to say how fantastic I think SAMSON is. I am a parent and know very little about it but have a son in P7 at Troqueer
Primary who has never “got” numbers and “hated maths”. I found this difficult as I was taught arithmetic well and use “mental maths”
every day at 40. Since he has started SAMSON he has made huge progress with all aspects of mental maths - it’s quite unbelievable. I
only wish he had benefitted from it sooner! He’s even enjoying numbers and their challenges now which is great. I’m looking forward to
learning a bit more about the strategies and how parents can support the work at home soon. I think it’s a brilliant addition to kids
education and just wanted to thank you very much!
Early signs are that pupils really enjoy using the program, they like the characters and the successes they gain from the consistent practise and seeing their results improve.
The timed sheets were really good because they helped me improve in my mental maths.
