Maths-U-See’s goal is to help produce confident problem solvers who enjoy the study of maths. The reason we study maths is so we can apply what we learn in everyday situations. Using a single workbook for a 12 month period, the students learn their maths facts, rules, and formulas at home, and are able to use this knowledge in real life applications. The study of math is much more than committing a list of facts to memory. It includes memorisation, but it also encompasses learning the concepts that are critical to problem solving.
Maths-U-See provides a continuous sequential progression of material which is perfect for the home school environment. The curriculum has a multi-sensory format and a daily review of previous concepts. It includes DVD presentation, extra practice sheets, tests & word problems. Parents watch the DVD with the child and use the text to teach at Primary level. All concepts are taught using hands on manipulatives from Primary level through to High School level. High School students may need less parental input. Many of our home schooling families use this particular Maths curriculum with great success.
