PHILOSOPHY

KMIDS employs a variety of resources, including textbooks, online resources, and technical tools in its day-to-day instruction. The overriding philosophy of education of the KMIDS Mathematics Department is that mastery of mathematics is arrived at in the doing of math. To that end, our teachers ensure that students are continually developing their mathematics skills through constant working engagement in mathematical exercises. The process in an active one that ensures mathematical strength in our students and enables them to obtain acceptance to a multitude of mathematics-dependent courses of higher learning upon graduating from KMIDS.
