Academy details

Live lessons

Our Maths Academy teaching is done via online live lessons which are held weekly for each grade. In each lesson, learners will be guided by their Maths Academy educator as well as a technical support team member. Before each lesson, learners will be given notes for their upcoming session to enable them to download and print them or have them available on their devices before the lesson. 

Lessons, delivered by our expert teaching team, are made available to Academy learners via their personal online learning environment. Here, learners can access all lesson worksheets and the recording of the previous week’s lessons. This is helpful in the event that learners wish to look back on a lesson or are unable to attend live in a particular week.


Weekly progress tests

Application of knowledge is key to learning success, especially in Mathematics. Therefore, in addition to the weekly live-online lessons and online video lessons the Maths Academy learners write a weekly progress assessment that tests them on concepts learnt in previous weeks and even previous years. This forced test repetition is a cornerstone of Trish Pike’s Mathematics learning methodology. It ensures that learners spend focused time practising. It also reveals gaps in their understanding to enable correction and excellence in school tests and exams throughout the year. 

Results on the spot tests are fed back to both parents and learners weekly to keep them informed and involved in the learning process. Additionally, our expert coaching team prescribes corrective and extension work from a vast collection of Maths learning resources to candidates who need it or want it.
