Core Maths Skills

Core Maths Skills

The Foundation curriculum covers core skills that enables students to confidently manipulate numbers, understand principles of maths and symbols. The scaffolded curriculum, a curriculum that builds upon prior knowledge, gradually builds full understanding of skills, allowing them to successfully complete their work.

Students can take risks, complete work and make errors in a totally non-judgmental and supportive environment. Their work and errors are followed up and explained, resulting in a huge boost in confidence, leading to significantly better outcomes. 

Primary & Secondary Maths Curriculum

Students are assessed for their current abilities and then work through an individualised program to meet their needs. Constant guidance, teaching and feedback is given throughout their program. There is a strong emphasis on methods and processes and every piece of work completed by a student is followed up.

Brainworks has developed their own comprehensive maths curriculum. Primary school maths tutoring and secondary school maths tutoring is available at all Brainworks tutoring centres.
