Year 7 HegartyMaths Home Learning Programme
St Clement Danes is part of 12 schools across the UK launching the HegartyMaths programme with all Year 7 students this year.
HegartyMaths is an online website created by UK Teacher of the Year and Global Teacher Prize Top 10 Finalist, Colin Hegarty. Colin received these awards for his contribution to Maths education and was last month named as one of the top 10 Maths ÍinfluencersÍ 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 in Year 7 so that, along with fantastic teacher-led Maths lessons in school, children will be supported at home with their Maths learning. Often Maths homework can be difficult to get right for Year 7s. At home students may struggle to remember concepts they learned in class and parents often find it difficult to help their child through the methods as they were different to those used when they were at school.
The HegartyMaths system will makes it easier for children to engage with their Maths homework. It teaches, assesses and tracks everything children need to learn in school. 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 promoting their child's Maths learning
