The 321 math programme has been developed in Finland, a country that has come to international attention for its proven methodology in successfully teaching young children maths skills. In fact Finland holds the accolade of coming out top in the European Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) report, which compares academic outcomes between nations.
What Does the Course Teach?
Early maths skills are learned with the child’s experience and individuality firmly at the forefront. Colourful, intuitive and interactive multimedia exercises make learning engaging and fun. Kids stay motivated by being able to work at their own level and pace and by gaining rewards on the completion of tasks. 321 math 1A focusses on Count and Compare Numbers, Numbers 0-5, Numbers 6-10 and Geometry and Measurement.
How Does it Work?
All learning takes place online, meaning the course content can be used both in schools and in a home-school environment. Children can access the course for 12 months, thus giving them a greater chance of success in their studies.
