As the leader in the European Programme for International Student Development (PISA) report into the academic outcomes of European countries, the Finnish method of teaching maths to young children is rightfully gaining popularity in other nations. This great value bundle of online course material is designed to give UK children access to this leading and innovative programme.
What Does It Include?
The child as an individual is firmly at the heart of the experience as the course content is visually appealing and easy to engage with. Children learn through specially designed interactive puzzles and games that highlight the practical mathematical problems that they come across in their day to day lives. This means learning is easy to relate to the real world rather than based on theory alone. In 321 math! 2B, the subjects covered are Measuring Tools, Multiplication and Division, Numbers up to 1000 and Investigate and Experiment.
How Does It Work?
Access to the lessons is online, meaning children can learn at a time and in a place that suits them. This makes the course content a flexible and enjoyable way for a child to improve their mathematical skillset either in an education setting or in the comfort of home.
