This structured annual program emphasizes spaced reinforcement and extension in weekly Friday lessons that are recorded live and are delivered to our online Academy via our virtual classroom live stream. This enables online learners to engage and ask questions just as if they were in the classroom environment.
Lessons, delivered by our expert teaching team, are made available to Academy learners via their dedicated online learning environment. Included in this course are all lesson worksheets and the recording of the previous week’s lessons. This is helpful in the event that learners are unable to make a lesson in a particular week or wish to look back on a lesson.
Application of knowledge is key to learning success, especially in mathematics. Therefore, in addition to the weekly lesson, learners are required to write a weekly 30-minute spot test 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 and reveals areas in which individuals are struggling and in need of support. 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.
