Rethinking Math Instruction for Children

Rethinking Math Instruction for Children

Codewizardshq Learning is proud to deliver the following elementary mathematics courses:

  • Primary School
  • Middle School

A discovery-based and project-based learning methodology is used in these classes. They inspire students to develop a passion for math and equip them with the foundational skills and academic abilities needed to succeed in advanced math classes and even the most math-intensive careers.

From our discovery-based learning approach to the method by which we pick our excellent teachers and pair them with students for 1-on-1 learning, you’ll hear what makes these courses so impactful in this article.

What Is Discovery-Based Learning and How Does It Work?

The principle of discovery-based learning is straightforward: students learn better when they are placed at the forefront of information acquisition and construction. This is why our teachers use organised exercises to help students discover their own mathematical intuitions.

Students in our courses take the lead in exploring new ideas by exciting, hands-on experiments and leading questions. Meanwhile, the teacher acts as a mentor, offering advice and correcting any myths that might arise. Students become specialists in each mathematical method they learn by adapting their findings to realistic exercises and detailed ventures.

Students will learn and develop the in-depth, conceptual skills they will need to excel in their more advanced mathematics classes and potential career areas in both of these courses.

Why Do Students Enroll in Our Elementary Math Classes?

Not all is suited to the conventional classroom.

In a typical mathematics classroom, children are often put in groups of 25 or more students and forced to find the correct answer to a given question. As a result, students learn early on that their mathematical abilities are fixed: they are either good or poor at math. With no space to appreciate the learning experience, most students become disengaged and never fully realise their mathematical ability.

These feelings are often reinforced by extracurricular mathematics activities. Instead of emphasising creative awareness, imagination, or hands-on exercises, such programmes emphasise “skill and drill” instruction. Fluency practise is an important part of learning mathematical knowledge, but it is far from the only one.

The Llearning Process is Being re-Imagined by Codewizardshq.

The conventional narratives are challenged in Codewizardshq Mathematics courses. Students are encouraged to investigate, think objectively, and ask questions. Rather than categorising an answer as correct or incorrect, we encourage students to inquire as to why.

Our teachers allow students the freedom to learn new ideas and make concrete connections by starting with these queries. Our students see their codewizardshq sessions as tools for infinite curiosity and possibilities as a result of this critical change in viewpoint.

Nurturing a student’s inherent motivation — their ability to study for its own sake rather than for a reward — fosters a lifelong interest in learning that leads to academic and professional achievement. Giving a student a sense of autonomy and influence over their learning experience, as discovery-based learning does, is a great way to encourage intrinsic motivation.
