A maths study skills program to help students achieve their best possible maths results.

What if knowing how to study maths was just as important as knowing what to study in maths?

What if the most important maths lesson in your student’s life didn’t actually teach the any maths – but taught them how to learn maths and empowered them with mathematical self belief?

What if all of your students believed that maths was not only for the select few, but that anyone and everyone can succeed at maths?

Having strong maths skills is a vital part of every child’s education, yet many students struggle with low levels of confidence and high levels of anxiety in mathematics.

However research shows that having  positive attitude towards maths can actually boost maths achievement, independent of  IQ and other contributing factors.

That’s why our How to Learn Maths program was created.

Drawing on our expertise as one of Australia’s leading providers of study skills programs, including over 30 years experience in creating maths programs and in consultation with Jo Boaler, Director of Youcubed.org and one of the world’s leading maths learning experts we have created a program that can help students to:

  • Engage deeply with maths and find it more enjoyable

  • Build a growth mindset in maths

  • Enhance their maths study skills so they can achieve at their highest possible levels

  • Encourage students to continue with higher level maths subjects

We believe  that How to Learn Maths may be the single most important lesson in a students mathematical studies as it teaches them how to study maths while at the same time boosting their levels of confidence, engagement and enjoyment in maths.
