Logic & Mathematical Thinking I (Age 3.5  4.5/5) Fall Semester
Overview:
Logic & Mathematical Thinking I aims to help preschoolers develop logic thinking ability through a fun and rich environment in which young children will mathematize their everyday life experiences. The course also aims to enhance young children’s observation skills, fine motor skills, as well as their mathematical language for the preparation of later formal school math learning. The 5 modules covered in Course I are:1) logic reasoning; 2) number sense; 3) observation; 4) fine motor; and 5) expressiveness.
Logic Reasoning:

Measurement in natural units

Strategic games I & II

Easy logic reasoning puzzles

Time in everyday life (rotation)
Number Sense:

Part & Whole

Number partitioning and regrouping

Equal partition of a number
Observation:

Labyrinth puzzles

The learning of point, line, & plane

The learning of parallel

Solid shapes I
Fine motor:

Equal shares of shapes (basic)

Origami (basic)

Comparisons between measurements (basic)
Expressiveness:

Classification & statistics (basic)
