Devised and delivered by an internationally regarded expert in the field of maths learning difficulties.
I find your tutorials an excellent resource in my role in helping children who are struggling in grasping the basic concepts of Maths. A lot of my students have a diagnosis of dyslexia, and these children also seem to present with difficulties in Maths. This cohort of pupils are the ones which benefit from your excellently presented tutorials.
Each video uses carefully designed visual images, matched to the relevant maths vocabulary and concepts in order to enhance understanding.
The structure of the programme and the principles that drive it are based on research from around the world on how people learn, and fail to learn, maths.
The videos develop an understanding of maths by addressing and circumventing the barriers that handicap learning. They are about using that understanding to support memory.
The Maths Explained tutorials are based on Steve Chinn's decades of experience and research on how to teach children and adults who have maths learning difficulties. Some have had difficulties that were sufficiently severe as to be labelled as dyscalculia. Steve has written a number of books and learning materials on dyscalculia and maths difficulties, some now in 3rd and 4th editions. He has lectured on this problem in over 30 countries.
Typical symptoms of dyscalculia
- Difficulty when counting backwards
- A poor sense of number and estimation
- Difficulty in remembering 'basic' facts
- Difficulty in understanding place value
- Slow to perform calculations
- Addition is often the default operation
- Weak mental arithmetic skills
- High levels of mathematics anxiety
My 13 year old has just started your program and for the first time in his life is understanding math! I cannot come close to conveying the struggles we have been through with the education system, and so, now as a home-schooled student, and with 'maths explained', he is learning the explanations behind WHY we do something, not just being told to 'do it that way'. Thank you so much for this program. I wish it were mandatory viewing of every teacher in Australia, for the damage their lack of understanding of learning differences does is too great. With your program, I hope to not only help my son learn basic math, but restore his self-esteem along the way. Best 30 pounds ever spent!!’A Mum from Australia
