Happy Numbers is a research-based program and meets the standards of evidence in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), aligning with Tier 4 “Demonstrates a rationale.”
Our pedagogy is based on solid research in teaching math and time-tested approaches to instruction. We scaffold learning by providing just the right amount of guidance and practice to keep students in their Zone of Proximal Development, moving them toward ever-more complex math skills.
Our essential practices are:
We use a Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract model at each grade. Each student’s individual learning pathway involves different types of exercises that use the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract model of education.
We keep students in the Zone of Proximal Development. Our unique scoring system ensures students don't click through exercises without understanding.
We provide immediate feedback. In the case of a mistake, students continue working independently thanks to immediate feedback represented by friendly tips and color-coded hints. At the same time, we avoid over-instruction to keep motivation and interest high.
