Primary Mathematics

At Canberra Learning and Development Centre, primary school students are exposed to a sequential, multi-sensory program that is aligned with the Australian curriculum. This includes practice with word problems and problem solving.

All students have access to an online program designed to practice basic facts which also exposes them to the relationship between numbers.

Explanations are clear and simple. We know how to develop deep, conceptual understanding of how numbers work. We offer an abundance of practice methods for students to learn effectively. The program used is designed to teach students specific skills that build as the student progresses. This systematic and cumulative approach uses a definite, logical sequence of concept instruction. The Math-U-See system is structured with step-by-step procedures for introducing, reviewing, practicing, and mastering concepts. Each lesson teaches using multi-sensory tools such as videos, manipulatives, and other resources, designed to appeal to any type of learner.

The program is effective when used in one-on-one teaching or tutoring situations. It can be used to supplement and reinforce math concepts with any student.

Mathematics Years 7-12

Our secondary mathematics groups cover the topics a student will be exposed to in their individual grades. Through expert help, clear succinct explanations, and the time needed to practice skills taught, students gain confidence in their ability to learn and do maths.

For junior high school, our purpose is to ensure that students have a correct conceptual understanding in critical areas such as times tables, basic math facts, fractions, decimals, percentages and a strong grasp of numbers.

All sessions are taught by a qualified mathematician or a skilled, experienced and passionate tutor. Work is tailored to each learner’s specific needs, that fills the gaps and develops them from right where they’re at.

Students are expected to complete enough work to develop automaticity with the topics that underpin and are necessary for further learning in mathematics.

Teaching and learning is dynamic and interactive. Students experience high quality instruction, employing questioning techniques so they learn to think and develop confidence in their own thought processes.
