The Maths — No Problem! programme is much more than just a series of textbooks and workbooks. Based on the evidence-based approach from Singapore, the teaching resources provide a proven structure with systematically varied examples designed for pupils to master maths. But to deliver the lessons effectively, teachers do need to have a strong theoretical understanding of the learning theories that underpin the teaching materials. In this interview, Maths — No Problem! series consultant Dr Yeap Ban Har, explains the five learning theories that are core to the programme; Piaget, Bruner, Dienes, Vygotsky and Skemp.
These learning theories are at the heart of all our professional development, from inset training to intensive Singapore Maths courses. To find out more about Singapore Maths professional development courses in your area go to www.mathsnoproblem.co.uk/events
