Maths Is For Everyone
Learning Maths Is Important
We believe young people should be given an education that will make them mathematically competent and proficient, and that will equip them appropriately for the future.
Everyone Learns At Own Pace
We believe that all young people need opportunities to explore maths at their own pace so as to enhance their understanding, and their reasoning and problem solving skills. We recognise that young people have different ways of learning, questioning and apprehending the world of maths.
Some Could Benefit From Extra Help
Schools endeavour to provide a good education to all students. They face significant challenges due to curriculum pressures, resource constraints and the wide range of needs of the students they teach.
We believe that some students need additional, personalised time and help with their maths learning. We are convinced that this is best provided within the school environment, in close communication with the students' regular maths teachers, and through one-on-two or one-on-one attention.
MathsMakers Is About...
Helping Each Other
We believe in the value of peer learning and peer education. Students teach and learn from each other. This way, learning becomes a co-operative and active process.
Stimulating and Encouraging
We believe that students can learn best when they feel relaxed and accepted, and when they are encouraged to overcome challenges and barriers.
We recognise that students' curiosity must be stimulated and that there must be aspects of their maths learning that are fun. We believe in the value of functional learning when students have opportunities to explore and learn maths through contexts that are relevant to them.
We believe in reminding each student of his/her fundamental value and his/her tremendous potential to learn and to grow.
