Maths Pathway was created to guide every child through their whole maths journey, from primary school onwards. Your child's unique learning path will fill in their gaps, extend their knowledge, and give them the feeling of joy that comes with success and growth. Because maths shouldn’t be scary, it should be something every kid can enjoy and be great at.
Your child begins by completing a diagnostic assessment that provides granular data on their gaps and competencies. This data forms a learning profile detailing what each student has mastered, what they are ready to learn next and what gaps exist.
At the end of a learning cycle, your child will complete a formative assessment that determines their progress and what learning should take place next. This component is essential for effective personalised learning to gather real-time data and enable timely feedback and intervention.
Maths Pathway also measures three very important areas during learning cycles — effort, accuracy and growth.
Effort is the number of content modules completed versus the number of modules assigned for the cycle. High effort can be seen when students are keen to work hard and see how far they can push themselves. Lower levels of effort might be due to disengagement, or if a student is struggling.
Accuracy is a measure of how many content modules a student has mastered, as a proportion of their total completed modules for that cycle. Mastery is an important part of the Maths Pathway model as we know that students learn maths on a continuum, so they must understand each concept before they can reach higher levels of maths.
The growth rate is a really important piece of feedback for students as it emphasises the value of continual development. A student’s growth rate reflects the new work that they’ve mastered over time.
At the end of the cycle, a tutor will take a look at your child’s work and provide feedback. We think it’s really important to have humans checking work as they can quickly identify misconceptions and pick up on silly mistakes in your child's work that machines would mark wrong.
When anyone learns maths, it’s common for them to have gaps in their knowledge. Maybe they were feeling tired and inattentive when learning about fractions. Or maybe they couldn’t quite grasp the concept of skip counting, but they didn't get the chance to ask questions. Regardless of how gaps form, they can have far-reaching impacts on learning (like the Place Value example below)
That’s why at Maths Pathway we identify every child’s learning gaps from the start, so they can work on filling them and creating a solid foundation from which more maths learning can grow.
Maths Pathway combines the latest in education research to create a model underpinned by best practice. But don’t take our word for it. Learn more about the science behind our model here.
At Maths Pathway, our purpose is clear. We want to build a future where every child leaves school unafraid of maths and ready to apply their mathematical toolkit to the challenges they face in life.
