Our Learning Method
The Curious Dragons concept uses a ‘Touch it!, Visualise it! and Symbolise it!’ approach based on the Singapore Maths teaching method. Singapore is routinely ranked at or near the top in global comparisons of mathematical ability and boasts one of the most admired education systems in the world!
Singapore maths focuses on mastery, not just learning for a test, and supports the Maths Mastery method taught at school focusing on maths topics in greater depth. Based on the work of American psychologist Jerome Bruner, the Singaporean curriculum begins with hands-on activities with objects like buttons or dice. Next, students move onto the pictorial phase — looking at and drawing representations of concrete objects before moving on to using abstract concepts such and numerals and other mathematical symbols. Inspired by this our games take the same staged approach to learning mathematics.
