At Emmaus our students are engaged in a minimum of five hours of mathematics per week. We explicitly teach the concepts and skills needed for students to be proficient mathematicians.
We apply the principles of Explicit Direct Instruction to our teaching and learning in mathematics. Ensuring that all students build upon their conceptual understanding and mathematical fluency.
An integral component of each mathematics lesson is our daily review. The gradual and prolonged exposure is designed to convert all key skills taught, into long-term memory and student mastery. By making the recall of number facts and maths concepts fluent and automatic, children’s working memory is freed up to focus on deep problem solving and mathematical reasoning.
