Math & Magic.................amazing talent!

Why you should listen to him:
Arthur Benjamin makes numbers dance. In his day job, he's a professor of math at Harvey Mudd College; in his other day job, he's a "Mathemagician," taking the stage in his tuxedo to perform high-speed mental calculations, memorizations and other astounding math stunts. It's part of his drive to teach math and mental agility in interesting ways, following in the footsteps of such heroes as Martin Gardner.

Benjamin is the co-author, with Michael Shermer, of Secrets of Mental Math (which shares his secrets for rapid mental calculation), as well as the co-author of the MAA award-winning Proofs That Really Count: The Art of Combinatorial Proof.

"After his lively shows, students often rush the stage, eager for more tips and tricks."Reader's Digest

While we cannot promise such amazing results at the Kanata North Kumon Math & Reading Centre, we can re-assure you that your child is sure to develop confidence, improved mental skills & speed and perhaps even a love of Math! Not to mention the ability to move at a pace which is challenging, motivating and exciting. Every time they complete a challenging set on their own and move on ahead it is an empowering and exciting feeling. This is bound to have a trickle effect on every other subject and area in your child's life.

We know this is possible for every centre day I come across children that move up a milestone or two and as an Instructor I continue to be constantly and pleasantly amazed by the "Magical Powers" of comprehension and perseverance and winning smiles that my students have.

Enjoy Mathematics!!
