# Discover the Math-U-See Program

### The Math-U-See Program focuses on enabling students to achieve maths mastery at every stage before progressing to learning the next concept.

Students learn maths concepts one-at-a-time at their own pace. The learning is hands-on and multi-sensory, focused around our innovative manipulatives. Retention is improved through our 4-Step Method and cumulative reviews.

Through these tools, engaging lessons and the step-by-step curriculum, maths becomes concrete, useful and relevant to their everyday lives.

Math-U-See is entirely adaptable to every learning style and level, making maths accessible to anyone. It’s straightforward to teach too, with clear plans and video demonstration are provided for every lesson.
