Maths Pathway
Mathematics - Number and Algebra
Maths Pathway is a comprehensive mathematics learning programme with a teacher’s professional development program.

Maths Pathway uses a combination of individualised learning pathways, targeted direct instruction and rich learning to provide a holistic and engaging in-school mathematics learning experience for students aged 8 to 18.

Students learn mathematics based on what they need to learn next, and teachers can teach classes or groups of students using data to precisely target which students need to learn particular topics at the current point in time.

Learning Goals

The pedagogical analysis covers how the product supports learning of the identified skills. The student’s role is assessed by four contrary pair parameters, which are selected to cover the most essential aspects on the use of the product.

Math Pathways adapts to the needs of different types of learners. It provides good pre-curated material that is aligned with curriculum goals. There is a lot of material with various learning approaches; not only activities students complete in the platform, but also Mini-lesson plans and Rich learning project that the teacher can select.
Teachers can rely on the Math Pathways to meet specific goals, as the contents is the same for all users - they only proceed through it in different ways and in individual pace. When the learner is progressing in their path, the solution guides the user in reflecting their progression. Teacher can see with the help of excessive data the progresses of the class members, and will be able to help the pupils in right time if they are struggling.
Although each learner is on their individual path, the learning progress is directly comparable between users. Through data, teachers can really see and observe how the pupils have succeeded with classes and modules. Goals can be set individually with and by teachers, and rich learning can be provided for advanced pupils.
When working on their pathways, the solution allows the learner to make all the decisions individually. Ideally this happens in collaboration with the teacher and also parent; the student can inform the teacher, if they need more challenge, and the teacher can intervene, if the data shows that is needed. Teachers can set different goals for different groups, host mini-lessons and rich learning projects. The lesson plans and projects focus also on social interaction and learning together.

The following are the high educational quality aspects in this product.

Math Pathways provides a truly individualized and optimized way for learning math.
There is an extensive amount of content available, which utilizes various teaching and learning methods.
The professional development program supports teachers in taking up an innovative way of teaching. The teacher's engagement and competence is crucial in the process.

The supported learning goals are identified by matching the product with several relevant curricula descriptions on this subject area. The soft skills are definitions of learning goals most relevant for the 21st century. They are formed by taking a reference from different definitions of 21st century skills and Finnish curriculum.
