Approach

PROVEN SUCCESS

Brodie developed the Aussie Maths Masters approach over many years as a classroom teacher. 

She first implemented this approach in her Year 6 classroom. In its first year, while the program was still in its infancy, students achieved an average of twice the expected growth, with 32% of students achieving three times the expected growth, according to standardised tests.

Brodie saw equally impressive results when teaching a support class who, by the end of the year, 
exceeded the grade average of the two higher classes.

She continued to develop her approach, including using an online learning management system to create a fully
personalised program for each student in her extension class. Students recognised the benefits of this approach so much, they even requested their high school Maths teacher use the same approach.

 

If Brodie can achieve these results in a classroom setting, imagine what she can do one-on-one through the MASTERclass program!

MASTERY
LEARNING

Maths skills and content are taught through a series of achievable, sequential units, each with a clear learning goal.

Each unit is structured to promote a deep understanding of content and is fully aligned with the NSW syllabus. Students master content before moving onto the next unit.

PERSONALISED PROGRAMS

Each student receives a personalised program that is tailored-made for their specific learning needs. Students are assessed to determine their current level in each sub-strand and progress from there, so the level of difficulty is always just right. Activities are further differentiated within units to cater for an individual's aptitude.

MATHEMATICAL
THINKING

One-on-one sessions with a teacher are the perfect setting for developing Mathematical thinking. Beyond just teaching formulas, students are coached in how to use reasoning and logic to work out solutions and formulas for themselves. 

MATHEMATICAL
COMMUNICATION

Students learn how to explain their reasoning and understanding in a variety of ways. With a focus on Mathematical vocabulary, students become confident Mathematical communicators who can clearly explain their thinking.

PROBLEM
SOLVING

Problem solving activities are embedded within units of work, providing a relevant context for students to apply skills and understanding (their Maths toolbox) while also developing their problem solving skills.

HANDS-ON
ACTIVITIES

The benefits of hands-on learning, especially for building long term memory are well known. Whenever appropriate, students explore new concepts using their hands and are given a variety of experiences to manipulate concrete objects before moving on to abstract and mental processing

VISUAL
EXPLANATIONS

Concepts are explained and explored using a variety of visual representations to deepen understanding and broaden students' application of skills taught. 

Representing concepts visually aides in mental computation and is an important step in mastering units at an abstract level, especially for number topics.
