Three-day in-depth course: Teaching Math for Mastery

Learn how to put decades of pedagogical theory into classroom practice

Why is it that big pedagogical ideas rarely translate into practical common-sense teaching techniques?

If you struggle with structuring effective math lessons, meeting the needs of every learner, or using research-based pedagogy in a practical way — this three-day PD course is for you.

Learn how to take decades of pedagogical theory and distill it into an effective teaching framework that helps children learn mathematical concepts in greater depth.

The Singapore method of teaching math for mastery is a proven approach that boosts teaching confidence, subject knowledge, and fosters an in-depth understanding of mathematics in students of every attainment level.

Now, this game-changing approach has arrived in North America!

This PD course is designed for anyone looking to make the right math changes in their elementary school. Wherever you’re at on your math teaching journey, we’re excited to have you.

Teachers, School Leaders and Educational Professionals can for only $850 CAD. Space is limited.

Students currently enrolled in full-time post-secondary programs can book for $349 CAD. Verification required.

Who should attend

This course is designed for anyone looking to boost math standards in elementary and secondary students. We’ve designed this course to progress from basic to advanced techniques, and to accommodate both math experts and non-specialist practitioners.

No previous experience with math mastery or Maths — No Problem! is necessary. This course is open to teachers, principals, math leads, consultants, and any other practitioner looking to make math better for everyone in their school.

Andy Psarianos: MNP Founder and CEO

As the founder of Maths — No Problem! and an expert in math mastery, it has been Andy’s mission for the better part of a decade to bring effective math education to as many classrooms as possible so that all children can succeed. When he first encountered the Singapore approach to math, he saw it as the answer to an outmoded system of rote learning that leaves most children behind.

MNP has since won the Publisher of the Year and Educational Publisher of the Year awards, two years running. The MNP Primary Series was selected by England’s Department for Education to pilot this new teaching approach in the UK. Since starting this movement, MNP has trained thousands of teachers in the UK and around the world as it continues to expand the reach of math mastery.

“I was a Math Lead Teacher for my school when we first adopted Singapore math and really enjoyed learning all of the new strategies. Math all of the sudden made sense to me and I had a better understanding of the ‘why’ behind what I was doing.”
