HegartyMaths is an online website created by UK Teacher of the Year and Global Teacher Prize Top 10 Finalist, Colin Hegarty. Colin received these his awards for his contribution to maths education and was last month named as one of the top 10 maths influencers in a recent Evening Standard Top 1000 Londoners list. The aim of this programme is to provide a top quality home learning platform to students so that, along with fantastic teacher-led maths lessons in school, your child will be supported at home with their maths learning. At home students may struggle to remember concepts they learnt in class and parents often find it difficult to help their child through the methods as they were different methods to when they were at school.
This HegartyMaths system makes it easier for a child to engage with their maths homework. It teaches (via 800 10 minute videos made by Colin), assesses (in small quizzes of usually 10 questions) and tracks everything a child needs to learn in school maths. The programme aims to have a positive impact in the following areas:
- Student intrinsic motivation for learning maths and their attitudes towards maths;
- Student attainment in maths
- Parental engagement and ability to assist in your child’s maths learning.
