MATH MASTERY SERIES™

Australia’s very own Direct Instruction (DI) model, the Math Mastery Series (MMS), has been especially designed by Dr Rhonda Farkota for the contemporary Australian classroom.

While adopting the concept of a scripted lesson popularised by Engelmann and the University of Oregon, the Farkota DI model has modernised the delivery process, and streamlined the script concept, in a manner that strikes a balance between teacher-directed and student-directed learning.

The role of the teacher in presenting the daily lesson is to deliver, diagnose and debug. Students record their responses, represent their data, and report their bugs in the prescribed workbook. Because MMS is data driven, the workbook is a crucial element; it acts as a GPS enabling teachers to specifically target and track student-identified bugs. It also allows the teacher to monitor their own performance.

MMS programs (JEMM, JEMM+ and EMM) serve as daily diagnostic tools incorporating daily assessment as an integral part of the learning process.

MMSanimation is a voice-over with animation complement to the MMS programs. This online resource is perfect for remote learning.
