MickMath – A new approach to help children integrating into our multi-cultural societies

MickMath mediates the basic cognitive functions by implementing especially developed learning games without the need to perceive abstract numbers. The cognitive functions are the core of any learning. In addition games offer a platform to gather emotional and social experiences and strengthens them herein.

MickMath is an entirely new approach to arithmetic’s, only by playful perception of forms and colours implemented into numerous different learning games. This leads to an understanding of number values and logical thinking. This happens language-independent, as arithmetic’s is one of only two worldwide known languages, namely music and arithmetic. This frees capacities for learning other subjects such as languages, most important for integration into any society. Children love to play, independent of their language, culture or socio-economic background. This even shows with children having undergone traumatic experiences. Very often playing is the only possibility to make children laugh and to awaken their motivation to learn.

Two further instruments to positively process emotions is the “Emo(tion) Game” and “Poweralbum” (s. special column)
