A Model for Mastery


eMathMaster is a unique tool that helps schools, math teachers, non-math teachers and teaching assistants to teach math. It follows the principles and methodology of the Mastery Model that is used in international schools (like in Shanghai) that score highly on the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA).

Through blending the Mastery Model with the aims of the various K12 curricula across the US (including Common Core), we believe that we have created the most robust, effective, coherent and reliable method for teaching and learning math. Feedback from both teachers and students already using the system testifies to this.


What are the core elements of the Math Mastery Model that eMathMaster utilizes to achieve such excellent results?

Efficiency of learning

A key factor of the Mastery Model is that it ensures each student has acquired an understanding of the lesson before moving on. When students have gaps in their understanding from previous years or even from recent absences, teachers have to spend class time reviewing previous material. By ensuring that students have passed through each lesson’s assessments before moving on, eMathMaster saves time in the classroom. It eliminates the constant need to reteach earlier material and ensures that each student is ready for the next lesson.


Security of understanding

If all students are secure in their knowledge of previous topics, they have greater confidence in the subject and approach lessons with a more optimistic frame of mind. This fosters a positive learning environment. The high-engagement gamification of the eMathMaster system inspires confidence in both teachers and students.


Equality of opportunity

One of the elements that attracted us to the Math Mastery Model is how it enables disadvantaged students to achieve the same high standards as advantaged students. Everybody gets the same opportunity to learn, the same quality of math instruction and every single student works towards and reaches the same end goal. eMathMaster delivers a level playing field for all teachers and students, regardless of their background or current circumstances. We have already had a positive impact on the lives of students hailing from disadvantaged areas.


Unified and comprehensive curriculum

eMathMaster follows a thorough academic plan created by highly regarded teacher-trainers in both England and the United States. The lessons cover all material required by each state and by the Common Core. The educational process provided by eMathMaster ensures that every single student receives a consistent learning experience that, in turn, leads to consistent learning outcomes. This also provides a smooth transition through grades, allowing students to fill in any gaps in their understanding. Educators working through the system also work through each of the standards for the various grades, ensuring coverage of all topics they may be expected to teach.


Continuous assessment of teachers and students

Each individual lesson and teaching technique segment in eMathMaster contains assessments ensuring understanding, including 366 sets of math questions. The relevant assessments are the same for every school, every teacher and every student on the system. These questions offer immediate feedback to both the students and teachers. Teachers can view the progress of their students, spot trouble areas, and intervene when needed. Administrators may also track the progress of the educators in their district.


Continuous professional development for teachers

Teachers across the United States have been experiencing increased pressures to deliver higher scores on their students’ state-wide exams. With ever-shifting expectations, math teachers are often overwhelmed with the demands placed on them. Many are also disappointed at the inaccessibility of math-specific professional development. eMathMaster provides insight from a team of experienced educators in its collection of teaching techniques videos. These lessons offer advice on how to help students better understand why certain formulas work as well as warn where many students encounter difficulty. They help to build pedagogical content knowledge by providing insight that normally takes years of experience to accumulate. For educators seeking a boost in confidence, a deeper understanding of the material, or a fresh perspective, eMathMaster provides a wealth of information.


What else does eMathMaster do?

eMathMaster offers real-time teacher and student progress reporting plus the ability to access lessons, assessments and math questions, both inside and outside of school hours.

The software uses state-of-the-art gamification and hyper-engagement mechanics to engage teachers and students, ensuring maximum confidence.

eMathMaster allows for true differentiation in the classroom and helps less-able students to improve rapidly, as well as attain educational achievements beyond previous expectations. There are students currently going through the system doing exactly that.

It also allows for true differentiation in the classroom. The system helps all students attain content knowledge while boosting their confidence. It also provides a unique opportunity for those who struggle in the classroom. These students find that they improve rapidly and attain educational achievements beyond previous expectations, as shown in trials.

eMathMaster can provide a school with educational results almost immediately through its plug-and-play delivery processes.

News & Events

As a passionate mathematics educator seeking always to find better and new ways to teach my students, I really value what eMathMaster has to offer. The lessons are insightful and engaging and provide strong visual and auditory reinforcement of the material better than anything else I have seen on the market. The teacher training videos offer insight that normally has to be gleaned through years of teaching experience and introduce insightful ways of teaching the material. I can genuinely say that I have learned valuable tricks along the way, even though I have been teaching for 15 years. Some of the techniques have sparked conversations amongst colleagues and have provided us with alternative means of explaining lessons.
