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!
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 quite enjoy maths. I feel that the mental strip sheets have helped my speed and the mental agility has helped my techniques.
The SAMSON children stick out like a sore thumb.
Hope Scotland take SAMSON on and then start on the English market as education is so far behind Scotland.
