Maths PLUS+ Cognitive Enhancement Program (Online)

Maths Plus+ is a brain training program designed to strengthen the cognitive functions used to excel in mathematics. It permanently improves abilities related to problem solving, logic, critical thinking, and processing speed. The program enhances the ability to quickly understand concepts and unlock mathematical potential. 

The Maths Plus+ training program improves more than maths abilities. Scientifically proven programming strengthens cognitive functions responsible for memory, attention, reading, writing,  time management, organisation, communication and decision making. Regular daily work leads to structural and functional changes in the brain. These changes are permanent and are often described as life-changing. 

Suitable for all levels. Ages 9+. 

How can the Maths Plus+ Program  help me?

  • Higher level thinking
  • Inferences
  • Problem solving 
  • Finding multi-step solutions
  • Deductive reasoning
  • Organization of knowledge
  • Processing Speed
  • Deeper understanding
  • Communicating ideas and concepts

How does it work?

The program requires 1 hour per day of online computer based training exercises. Five days per week for an academic year. The program focuses on brain functions that are responsible for higher order reasoning, problem solving and processing abilities.  Students who complete this program have been shown to exceed scores achieved by students in a gifted program. 

  • Training is facilitated by highly trained international instructors. Instructors are available for scheduled lessons, check ins, goal setting, coaching, and proactive support. 
  • Revolutionary cognitive training methods cause structural and functional changes in the brain. This results in a greater capacity to achieve full potential in mathematical ability. Improved abilities have benefits that can be applied across all academic disciplines.  
  • Daily online program time is facilitated by an instructor in a virtual learning environment. Enrolment is now open.  Our academic year runs from August to June the following year. No assessment is required.

Research

The cognitive training exercises in the Maths Plus+ program have been refined over the past 4 decades. Since 1997 there have been more than 20 research studies involving some 700 students across six universities and nineteen different educational organizations all evaluating the effectiveness of the Arrowsmith Program. Five of these studies have had control groups and eleven have been peer reviewed. There are another four research projects currently underway at three universities. 

The research involves Neuro-imaging and Behavioral studies using multiple designs recommended by the American Psychological Association. Significantly they all show very similar results– that the methods used are effective to improve student learning. 

Studies show that the training exercises used in the Maths Plus+ Program lead to structural and functional changes in the brain as well as significant improvements in academic and cognitive measures. Significant improvements were measured in comprehension, mathematics, vocabulary,  processing speed, attention, cognitive efficiency, reasoning, and working memory. Participants and their families report better mental health, emotional resilience, and a more positive self-concept.

Maths Plus+ targets critical cognitive functions to improve performance in mathematics. It helps to improve logic, processing speed, understanding of concepts and problem solving skills. It also improves the ability to perform complex mental calculations. Participants often report greater understanding, increased enjoyment of learning maths, and greater confidence. Changes are permanent and often described as life-changing.

    • At-Home access to the Arrowsmith Maths Plus+ Program.
    • Use of the Symbol Relations cognitive training exercise that improves abilities related to logic, comprehension, processing speed, focus and general understanding.
    • Individual instruction and support from Canadian-certified Arrowsmith instructors. Our instructors are among the very best and have a track record of exceptional success.
    • Progress review and detailed reports from a team of experienced cognitive trainers.
    • Daily instruction, coaching, goal setting, communication and proactive support via the virtual classroom.

Students will receive a certificate of completion upon successfully completing their program.

Each student requires:

  • Access to a computer
  • An external mouse (Mouse pads or track pads are NOT sufficient.)
  • A numeric keypad (The numbers along the top of a keyboard are not sufficient. A full numeric key pad is required.)
  • Reliable high-speed internet
  • Google Chrome browser
  • Google Hangouts or similar communication app

Laptops are sufficient provided they have a built in or external numeric keypad. Larger Screens provide benefit in the visual aspects of the program.

Prior to beginning the Maths Plus+ Cognitive Enhancement Program, there are important prerequisite skills that will greatly aid success and accelerate progress in the program.

Counting Skills:

Many of the levels in the Maths Plus program are based on concepts found in a 2 handed analogue clock. The following counting skills are important in ensuring the best possible start to the program.

  • Counting from 1-60
  • Counting from 60-1 (reverse)
  • Counting from 5-60 by 5’s
  • Counting 12-60 by 12’s
  • Participants should have a basic understanding of a 2 handed analogue clock

Counting skills may require daily practice leading up to the start of the program.

Numeric Keypad Touch-typing Skills:

Participants will need to know how to type numbers on the numeric keypad. This is the keypad on the right-hand side of the keyboard, not the numbers along the top. Participants will be using the numeric keypad to enter numbers quickly and accurately, using multiple fingers. Advanced typing skills on the numeric keypad, without looking, will greatly improve the experience in the program. To improve proficiency at touch typing, daily practice is recommended. Some websites offer free typing programs, be sure to look for websites or apps that have a numeric keypad option.

Online Program Testimonials

I always struggled with writing. When we moved online using Google docs Robert could see what I was typing and how quickly I was typing. He picked up that I write one sentence, think for another two minutes and write one sentence, instead of formulating the whole idea in my head, then writing. He really sat with me over Facetime, coaching me through this writing process. Keep going, keep the ideas flowing. I was running this marathon. One day was really hard, and I was so frustrated, but I had this insane breakthrough. Now I can formulate a whole story of what I want to say in my head and just type it.”
