Staff have found that focusing on the single strategies benefits their pupils immensely.
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!
Maths is one of my favourite subjects. I have got better at maths by doing timed sheets and strip sheets. I now have a faster time and am getting more accurate and much more confident.
The maths challenges and flipcharts have helped with my speed and accuracy.
Hope Scotland take SAMSON on and then start on the English market as education is so far behind Scotland.
