that allow students, regardless of their learning readiness, to gain a deep mastery of concepts,
confidence in Maths and success in both academics and, in life.

Central to the MCE Maths Pedagogy is the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract (CPA) approach which helps students to make connections and develop conceptual understanding.

The CPA approach is adjusted to suit the needs of specific curriculums, i.e., the Cambridge curriculum in our Cambridge IGCSE™ and Cambridge Primary Mathematicstitles, or the U.S. Common Core in our Primary Mathematics series or the Singapore curriculum in our My Pals are Here! Maths series.
