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.
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!
The mental Flipcharts are fun and helpful.
SAMSON children are streets ahead.
They have been a massive help because when I first came into P7, I was getting 15/20 in 4 minutes 30 seconds and I am now getting 20/20 in 2 minutes 6 seconds.
