The Bright Minds Program
Bright Minds is based on the most successful mathematics programs in the world, including Singapore Math, Russian Mathematics, and Harvard Math Circles. It is developed and run by Aaron and Moses Renert, two of the best known mathematics educators in Western Canada. Together they bring over 40 years of combined experience teaching mathematics to over 25,000 students of all ages (kindergarten to university).

Different from School Math
The innovative curriculum emphasizes mental arithmetic, deep mathematical understanding, and creative problem solving. It breaks away from the typical “spiral curriculum”. Instead of teaching students a little bit about many topics, we teach each mathematical concept thoroughly, from beginning to end, with complete understanding.

The classes are highly interactive and students participate throughout, sharing solutions and ideas. There are many entertaining activities: thinking games, logical puzzles, and competitions. They all communicate the message that thinking is fun.

Bright minds students progress through mathematical topics ahead of grade level. When they encounter the same topics in school, they are very familiar with them and can handle them with ease. The longer students study with Bright Minds, the more advanced they will be in mathematics and analytical reasoning as compared with their peers at school. We expect that Bright Minds students will complete their Alberta high school mathematics courses years ahead of grade level.

Classes and Teachers
Children learn as a class and progress together to complete the learning assignments and objectives. Classes are held of weekend and evening at Renert Tutoring Centres in Calgary, and are 60-75 minutes long (depending on grade level). Our teachers are experts in mathematics. They typically hold university degrees in mathematics or science and are passionate about teaching mathematics to young children. Their deep knowledge and commitment to every child’s intellectual growth transform the ways in which children interact with mathematics and bring about amazing academic results.

Homework
Following each class, Bright Minds students work on their assigned homework for about 20-30 minutes a day. We believe that natural curiosity and a keen mind must be accompanied by a good work ethic, consistency, and focus. Students are welcome to receive help with their homework at Renert Tutoring Centres. We also instruct parents how to support their children’s work at home.
