Enrichment Programme – Heymath

HeyMath! was developed in 2000 in collaboration with the University of Cambridge and by infusing proven practices from Singapore’s high-performing education system. Our mission is to upskill teachers and enable success for every student – through engaging teaching methodologies, adaptive practice and personalised learning paths. Over the last 23 years, HeyMath! has impacted more than 1 million students and 5000 teachers in Singapore, India, Malaysia, UAE, USA, South Africa and Latin America. Our pioneering and innovative work has been recognized by the BBC, The Economist, Mail & Guardian, and all leading newspapers in India. In Oct 2021, HeyMath! was rated exemplary on content quality, pedagogical alignment, technology & design by IIT Bombay and Central Square Foundation, based on an evaluation index (EdTech Tulna) that they co-developed. EdTech Tulna* is a multi-dimensional, rigorous, comprehensive and usable index.

HeyMath! teaching and learning method uses interactive lessons and online support with the aim of helping students strengthen their understanding of mathematical concepts and enhance their problems solving skills. The system uses a library of animated online lessons, interactive activities and assessment modules to help support teachers and to foster student learning. The lessons contain animated visuals that aim to remove the abstraction underlying math concepts, providing students with the opportunity to understand concepts in a ‘hands-on’ manner with connections to real-life contexts so that learning becomes relevant. This is a strategy designed to enable students to become creative thinkers and increase their understanding of mathematical concepts, and their application in the real world. The video lessons, focus on essential math skills and concepts, using a heavily pictorial approach to bridge the abstract to the concrete and explain the ‘why’ rather than just the ‘how’. The program provides a unique learning path for each student depending on their strengths and weaknesses while ensuring that all problem types are covered and nothing is missed. Our question generation algorithms ensure that a student cannot ‘master’ a topic without having understood all possible types of problems found in the curriculum. Each student will be provided different questions, with different numbers and contexts, in a different order. Extensive reports are available for teachers to analyze usage and student performance. Based on the performance teachers will develop a plan and work schedule to ensure every student makes progress all through the academic year and achieves his or her best potential in Maths.
