What is it all about?
Maarit Laitinen, Mother of Emma, Inventor
Mathematical thinking is needed every day. It is important that from the very beginning, students see mathematics as a subject in which there are several different solutions and points of view. The aim is to strengthen the concept of numbers, build a sense of self-efficacy, and to spark curiosity.
With EMMA Math we can help students build a positive attitude towards mathematics and support the development of mathematical thinking. The EMMA Math tools especially develop the understanding of numbers, upon which later mathematical understanding is built on.
Students learn by interacting with concrete tools. The tools promote learning in all children, but are especially beneficial for students who have difficulties with understanding mathematics.
The EMMA Math method combines tangibility with deduction: students get to know phenomena related to numbers and counting in an active way. A key step is producing mathematical language, which means deduction, explanation and experimentation.
How do you implement it?
Get the needed supplies
You will need the physical product, meaning the quantity blocks, the manual, the practice templates and exercises.Read more ›
Use the manual to get to know the supplies
The manual is simple and easy to understand. Implementing the supplies will be quick and easy.Read more ›
Use the supplies as a part of your own teaching
The tools can work as part of a lesson or you can build your lesson around on them. They can be used with the whole group, in pairs or individually with a teacher.Read more ›
