Through engaging, age-appropriate activities, MathRiders students begin to recognise mathematical models in their everyday lives.
In the classroom, students pursue a variety of activities to stimulate their minds and encourage a natural understanding of the subject. MathRiders students develop a strong grounding in maths through a combination of individualized attention and lively group sessions. MathRiders offers a unique approach to learning that ensures success.
The programme is built on the following concepts:
Appreciation: The beauty, patterns and logic of maths are all around us.Maths isn’t only formulae and equations, but another way to understand the world.
Encouragement: Students are encouraged to develop their ideas and learn to solve problems in new ways.
Partnership: Students work with the support of their teacher and peer group and develop confidence in their own abilities. The youngest learners are given an activity at the end of the lesson and a small task to execute with parents to reinforce learning. This engages parents to join the learning process.
Personalised assessments: Each Helen Doron MathRiders student receives level-appropriate, individual assessments, conducted by a certiﬁed MathRiders teacher. These assessments are intended as a tool to help teachers track student progress, identify strengths and weaknesses, and accordingly tailor specific instructional planning.
“The dynamics of a small group is an outstanding way for a child to learn maths. Add to this a specially trained teacher geared to helping the children interact with each other with fun and games, and they succeed—without pressure and through fun.”
Helen Doron, Founder and CEO
