Problem Solving/Constructivist Approach to Mathematics

Each child’s understanding of Mathematics is actively created and based on knowledge that has been developed by their own experiences and their continuously making sense of their world. It is not passively received from the teacher.

Children construct new Mathematical knowledge by solving appropriate problems, reflecting on their solutions and discussing their ideas with others.
Mathematical concepts are constructed and made meaningful when children integrate them into their existing individual structures of knowledge.

The success of this approach is evident in the excellent performance of our children in the various Maths competitions.
