As the leader in the European Programme for International Student Development (PISA) report into the academic outcomes of European countries, the successful Finnish method of teaching maths to young children is attracting attention in other nations. This great value online collection of course material is designed to give UK children access to this ground breaking new way of teaching maths.
What’s Different About It?
Learning is made fun and relevant by putting the child’s individuality at the centre of the course content. Children learn through specially designed interactive puzzles and games that focus on the mathematical situations children encounter in their day to day lives. This ensures learning is practical and easy to relate to the real world rather than purely theoretical. With 321 math! 3A, the focus is on Addition and Subtraction with Numbers up to 100, Multiplication and Division, Numbers up to 1000 and Geometry.
How Does It Work?
Access to the content is online, meaning children can learn at their own pace at a time and in a place that works best for them. In addition to the engaging games and puzzles, kids stay motivated by receiving rewards when they successfully complete tasks.
