When a child hits a stumbling block in math, quite often the focus will be on the current topic and their lack of understanding. This may be the case but the issue may lie further back in the child’s education.
So many Intervention programs promise to assess and diagnose the problem and then teach the problem area. Yet, as math is a complex language, and the building blocks aren’t always simple, there may be lots of math areas that are a bit shaky.
For this reason, numbercoach.com takes a step by step approach, filling the gaps in a child’s knowledge. During this process they gain confidence and knowledge, allowing them to access the topic that they’d had problems with. The program goes right back to basics, making sure all the correct building blocks are in place.
Our books and online program both work on the principle that, in order to develop, the foundations have to be solid. Often, it’s a case of not knowing which areas are wobbly, so we assume that it’s best to start from the beginning.
