Dynamo Maths identifies and supports pupils at risk of developmental dyscalculia and pupils who are performing significantly below their peers in math.
Dynamo Math has two seamlessly linked core components:
- Dynamo Assessment – Standardized dyscalculia assessment baselined at ages 6 to 9. It provides a profile of strength and weakness, supported by an Individual Support Plan, signposted di Dynamo Intervention.
- Dynamo Intervention – for ages 6 to 8 and incorporates a purposeful triple-pathway remediation.
Inclusive program with a range of SEN Support Tools.
Dynamo Maths is underpinned by a researched and evidence-based NumberSenseMMR®framework
Dynamo Maths aims to support pupils at risk of developmental dyscalculia and pupils performing significantly below their peers in maths.
The program uses a graduated approach using four important stages:
The assessment informs the intervention and delivers:
- an individualised Number Sense Developmental Profile
- an Individualised Support Plan
- Scheme of Work signposted to a purposeful intervention
- standardised score and percentile rank
The easy-to-use process and layout mean that teachers, parents and specialists can follow the seamless approach from assessment to intervention. The personalisation feature offers a Global Intervention Pathway based on the assessment recommendations and this pathway can then be auto-customised.
The Program uses the researched and validated NumberSenseMMR® framework to identify:
- symptoms of dyscalculia and/or
- maths developmental delays.
The profile shows the pupil’s strengths and areas of challenges so that a bespoke approach to re-positioning the development of the pupil’s number sense can begin.
This profile is supported by an Individual Support Plan that pinpoints the small-step areas of development. These areas of development are signposted to Dynamo Intervention.
The Class Report provides a quick glance at the entire class or group and gives the teacher a snapshot of the pupils’ assessment status and progress over time.
Standardised score and percentile rank are also included. The percentile rank describes the pupil’s rank or position when compared to other pupils who are of the same age.
Dynamo Intervention takes a developmental approach, where the learning of specific skills takes an integrated approach using three pathways: Lesson Plans, Online Activities and Worksheets. Each pathway is structured in small, cumulative steps of number development ensuring consolidation and confidence building before higher numbers are introduced.
Its strength lies in the way it offers multiple engagement routes so that the same skill is learned and consolidated in different ways whilst harnessing the pupil’s senses, emotions, verbal, visual, auditory and kinaesthetic skills.
