Growing IQ is a math-centric, enrichment program that allows a child to analyze; discover; examine; and take ownership of their mathematical learning through sensory-rich, inquiry-based, and collaborative learning experiences. Our unique curriculum allows students to connect material and ideas to abstract mathematical concepts extending beyond procedural understanding. We strive to create enthusiastic problem-solvers, big picture thinkers, and math lovers.

CREATIVITY

Research confirms that learning is enhanced when students acquire knowledge through active processes.  Growing IQ provides a hands-on, sensory-rich environment that enables students to hone their mathematical thinking skills.

our approach

At Growing IQ, students at all levels learn through discovery and explore those discoveries to become thinkers. Our teachers engage students in a mathematical inquiry and encourage them to collaborate, create, and come to their own conclusions by providing stimulating, sensory-rich activities. All classes are tailored to diverse learning styles by employing the three E's: Exploration, Examination, and Experience.

EXPERIENCE

Experiencing, modeling, engaging, and applying understanding of mathematical processes and vocabulary, demonstrating and deepening comprehension.

If we teach our children everything we know, their knowledge is limited to ours.  If we teach children to think, their knowledge is limitless.

Spatial Reasoning and Mathematics

While Growing IQ is a math-centric program, our methodology spans to subjects beyond math and the STEM fields. Our curriculum includes critical thinking, and spatial reasoning, along with problem-solving skills through the extensive use of experiential learning. Research shows that spatial reasoning is one of the most important predictors of achievement in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).

What OUR Parents in texas ARE Saying

“What a great way to engage the minds of kids to look at math in so many different ways! They make any mathematical problem seem so easy to solve. Thank you for strengthening and empowering them. I have not seen a single child yet that ever wants to leave your classes.”

 

— Neha, Growing IQ parent of 1st grader

"My children love it because it's hands-on fun & I love it because it's creative learning...what's not to love!"
