Maths Pathway for Home
Students get feedback
After each test, students see a summary of their progress. The aim is to maximize growth. A 100% growth rate means they learn are on track to learn a year of the maths curriculum in one year, but Maths Pathway students frequently get far higher growth rates.
Each module includes a video presented by mathS experts. These videos explain the concepts in simple steps with lots of examples.
This timeline sits prominently on the home screen. Students can see, at a glance, the work completed since the last test and when the next test is starting.
Students choose modules from a learning map. This map shows all modules that are ready to be learned. As the student masters a module, it turns gold on the map. When a whole concept has been mastered, it assembles into a jewel.
Regular testing for mastery
Every 2 weeks, students sit a test on the work they have completed. This gives them feedback on how well content has been mastered. Tests have an online component and a written component. The written component is marked by our teachers and students get individual feedback.
Parents have access to a number of reports on their child’s learning. They can easily see how their child has been progressing recently or against the Australian curriculum.
Work modules are designed by mathematics experts. Each module takes the student through simple steps with exercises to master the concepts.
Work modules are designed for students to work in a regular workbook.
No tutor required
This learning program is so well designed and thought out that nearly all our students find that they progress without the need for one on one tutoring.
This is the home user edition of the Maths Pathway Learning and Teaching Model. It is designed for families engaged in homeschooling, and for parents whose children require a more personalised approach to their mathematics learning.
You do not have to be good at maths yourself to use Maths Pathway Home. The role of the parent is important, but it is more about encouraging your child and making sure they are using good general studying strategies than being about to teach the maths content. Those strategies are encouraged through the Maths Pathway home and feedback coming from our online teachers.
How does it work?
The easiest way to conceptualise Maths Pathway for home is as a ‘virtual classroom’: – students access their personalised learning path via an online portal, and a virtual teacher at Learning About Learning coordinates the administration and management that a classroom teacher would normally do. Students learn in fortnightly cycles, with a test at the end of each fortnight. The flowchart below describes the simple process we follow.
