“Everything in nature is mathematics; everything in the world can be explained through mathematics.”

Math helps you to understand everything about life, from science and nature to art and sport. Furthermore, contrary to popular belief, math is not a subject in which only a small, exclusive group of people are successful. Children simply need to be kept away from the idea that math is a difficult, boring and frightening subject.

 

OBJECTIVES

Math helps you to understand everything about life; from science and nature to art and sport. Rather than a serious and frightening subject, mathematics is a way to help us understand life. This is an understanding that we try to instill in our students. Math is more than just information.


The math program at Üsküdar SEV Middle School has been designed in a way that, far from learning by rote, students learn to think analytically and use logic and discover the mathematics that exists within their everyday lives.

 

PROGRAM

The program is designed in accordance with the Ministry of Education curriculum for grades 5-8 and is enriched with various activities and materials.

Time is also given in lessons to the PASS Theory, smartboard activities and real-life contextual situations. When studying geometry students use the Cabri 3D program to help develop their understanding of geometry.
