We focus on maths Mastery, not just studying for a test

MathCode is a teaching method that helps students understand mathematical concepts and solve problems by following three steps: first, students start with concrete examples using manipulatives (such as blocks or base ten blocks), then they move to pictorial representations (such as drawings or graphs), and finally to abstract problem-solving (using numbers and symbols). This approach emphasizes active thinking and communication, encouraging students to develop a deep understanding of mathematical concepts.

Parents can track their child's progress through regular feedback and reports, ensuring that you are always up-to-date on your child's improvement. With the MathCode™ Mastery Method, children will learn to code while developing their math skills, giving them the tools they need to succeed.
Whether your child is struggling with math or simply looking to boost their confidence and grades, the MathCode™ Mastery Method is the perfect solution.

The system's to blame, not your child's teacher. 

Australian teachers are some of the best in the world, and they're dedicated to helping their students grow and succeed. However, large class sizes and an imperfect system can make it difficult for them to provide the individual attention that every student needs. 
We can help! We'll happily communicate with your child's teacher, so that we can tailor our program to match your child's needs.

Why Choose MathCode Mastery?

Maths Tuition in Eastwood

Deep Understanding, Not Just Memorisation for Maths Tests

Why Singapore's students lead the world in Maths Mastery

Singapore's students consistently dominate in both math and science , this raises the question of what makes Singapore students so successful in STEM subjects? The cornerstone of the Singapore method of maths mastery is the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract approach (CPA). It's also the same teaching method we employ in our MathCode programs.
Some feel that Australian students struggle because the information tends to jump from concrete to abstract without giving the learner time to fully grasp the ideas through pictures. The pictorial phase acts as a bridge, preparing the mind to think in more abstract ways. Mastery is easier to achieve because it occurs at each level, with the student building on previous skills.
The ability to think about numbers in your head without the use of outside tools is an important skill to have. What has been lacking for many Western students is a method that enhances their aptitude for creative problem solving. The MathCode method addresses all of this, allowing your child to build a strong foundation in Maths and problem solving.

FAQ

  • Why is the MathCode Mastery Method so good? Is there any research?

    There's a growing body of research that demonstrates the integration of Coding and Maths can boost student learning outcomes. In short, it helps kids see a practical application of mathematics, and is aligned to the things kids love... Gaming and technology. If kids are engaged, they are more likely to thrive. 
    The MathCode Method is based on the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract approach. A recent study found that the improvement of spatial sense ability (SSA) of students who received learning with the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) approach was significantly better compared to students who received conventional learning. (Putri, H. E., Rahayu, P., Muqodas, I., & Wahyudy, M. A. (2020). The Effect of Concrete-PictorialAbstract (CPA) in Improving Elementary School Students’ Spatial Sense Ability. Mimbar Sekolah Dasar, 7(1), 16-29. doi:http://dx.doi.org/10.17509/mimbar-sd.v7i1.19585.)
    Mathematics and Coding: How Did Coding Facilitate Thinking? Calder, Nigel. (2022). The teachers involved in the project identified that the use of unplugged activities and coding language facilitated mathematical thinking in students. ScratchMaths has been shown to be an effective resource for developing coding and computational thinking in primary-aged children in the UK. (Calder, Nigel. (2022). Mathematics and Coding: How Did Coding Facilitate Thinking?)
    The results showed that children with coding play experience had higher levels of computational thinking, self-regulation, and attention concentration. A positive correlation was found between computational thinking and attention concentration in children with coding play experience. The study concluded that coding play experience is an important factor in enhancing computational thinking in early childhood. (Kim, Mi-Jung & Pu, Sung-Sook. (2022). The effects of Self-regulation and Attention concentration on Computational Thinking according to Coding Play experience of children. Korean Association For Learner-Centered Curriculum And Instruction. 22. 571-588. 10.22251/jlcci.2022.22.12.571.)

    Placement testsA placement test measures a student’s cumulative knowledge acquired in their prior grade level, uncover gaps, and establish learning goals.
    Pre-testsA pre-test is given to assess the student’s level of readiness prior to teaching each new topic and unit. Gaps in student’s knowledge can be quickly filled with the lessons from the prior unit and grade.
    Instructional videosThese fun, engaging and kid-friendly videos provide high quality instruction for each topic, unit and grade. They follow the famous Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract learning progression that’s proven to help young students develop conceptual understanding of each topic and unit in every grade level. You can be assured that high-quality instruction is consistent in each grade.
    Assisted practice exercisesThe assisted practice exercises provide more visuals and guidance for students to acquire new concepts. It especially helps students who require extra support to acquire new skills. Our educators may use assist exercises to differentiate their instruction and to provide support to students who are still having difficulty understanding.
    GamesGames motivate students to practice in a fun environment. They provide a lot of additional practice to reinforce development of procedural fluency. Also, games provide visuals and guidance to support students who are still struggling to master a particular skill.
    Benchmark practice exercisesThe benchmark practice exercises enable on-level students to practice or reinforce concepts that they have already learned and develop procedural fluency. Students can review their answers to address any questions or correct misunderstandings.
    Post-testsThe post-tests are used to measure whether students mastered a particular topic and unit. The post-assessments reveal students’ depth of knowledge acquired after learning a particular unit as well as abilities to transfer that knowledge to solving other problems. The detailed results will help our Educators quickly identify whether students can proceed to learning the next topic in sequence and, if necessary, provide for the review of a prior topic.
    Intervention testsThe intervention tests allow our Educators to diagnose whether students need simultaneous remediation of a number of skills. They also help Educators diagnose if students require minimal or intense intervention. The detailed results will help us determine and assign appropriate lessons to fill in gaps in student knowledge.
    Grade TestsThe grade tests reveal students’ understanding of concepts learned throughout the grade level as well as abilities to apply that knowledge to solving non-routine and open-ended problems. Educators will get a detailed analysis of students’ achievements and can then take action to provide students with appropriate remediation or enrichment.
