# EMMA Math

## 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.
