Flexible and Coherent Curriculum
We are in the process of designing our curriculum to solve two big problems we see with mathematics curriculum.
The first problem is that teachers, who have limited time to prepare lessons, are often forced to grab resources from Google and Pinterest. This leads to a potentially incoherent experience for children and more work for teachers.
The second problem is that many mathematics curricula are inflexible. One cannot easily substitute one lesson for another nor is it particularly straight-forward to insert lessons, selected in response to observed student need, into the middle of a sequence of lessons.
