Can anyone comment on the quality of the magazine and whether it's suitable for kids? Any sample pages that I can refer to? Their website doesn't seem to have much info. Very poorly designed.

First, the company boass of high profile personnel like Dr. Rosalind Phang and Dr. Tang Wee Kee. They are educators and mathematicans. (view My Company) You can be sure that the content and figures are correct.

Next, many schools are subscribing to this magazine. (View Feedback on their website) This mass subscription in the schools has to be approved by the Math HOD in each school. So, this publication is recognised to be useful and helpful for the child's learning in Math.

Also, this magazine is reader friendly and attractive, content is pegged at the appropriate level for the mass Singapore Math students in that level. It has many interesting content which is not covered at all in the Math textbook. As a parent, it will be diffcullt for you to search for age appropriate reading cum enrichment Math material for your child. There are hardly such materials available at primary level.

For example,while textbook only covers adding and subtracting of numbers, number bonds etc, the magazine also covers how the numbers come about, a little about the history of numbers. A littlle about how and why we are using the Number system now. What number system were there before this etc.There are also games, Math in real life applications like using straw to fold shapes, which is like origami. All these serve to enthuse students' interest in Math and expose them to different aspects of Math Learning.
