About MATH IS MATH
Mathematics is not just a subject in school, but one of the most effective tools to establish the logical, reasonable thinking (what is so important in life management).
MATH IS MATH provides an open environment where students can explore mathematics with the leadership of a professional math teacher.
Making the learning process for students as easy as possible is important. At the same time, setting the goals low just to avoid challenge is uneffective. This is why establishing a proper objective in math education is one of the most important principles.
Also, it is really important to make sure, students understand that learning something is not a sign of "I'm not smart enough because I don't know this" but a natural process of improvement. Every one of us started somewhere. Even Einstein. Learning something from a teacher is just as natural as learning how to speak from our parents. This is why pedagogy and honest conversations are important parts of the MATH IS MATH method as mathematics itself.
When students face a new math problem, first, a teacher has to teach them how to understand it, then break the problem down into pieces, then discover different tools to find a solution. A solution that comes from their own understanding not just from copying. This is the way that will lead them to exciting learning discoveries of their own. This process can make mathematics fun and exciting, not just a boring subject. MATH IS MATH aims to foster the desire for learning, mistakes are not a proof of personal failure rather a sign that shows the space for possible improvement.
MATH IS MATH class structures are always dependent on the individual's needs. The teaching method always considers both the personality and the attributes of the student. There is no magic method that can solve each student's problem using the same process. Everyone is unique and requires a unique, personalized curriculum.
When a pupil sets a goal for her/himself, there is nothing else just her/his intentions! A teacher can help to realize these personal wills. The goal is always self improvement, the tool can be mathematics.
This is what MATH IS MATH has been providing for unique individuals. Using and improving the best teaching methods available, emphasizing the communication between parents, students and teacher, and keeping the fun part in learning.
