HIGH PERFORMANCE PROGRAMME
Since 1994 Einstein Maths has endeavoured to expose high achievers in primary school mathematics (Grades 2 to 7) to advanced ideas in mathematics but within their knowledge and ability range. Such material is generally not considered in the routine mathematics curriculum and is clearly directed at students with high potential in mathematics. Of course, it is not possible to judge potential accurately, therefore anyone may take part at the appropriate age and grade level as determined by the parents or guardians.
Usually the programme consists of 2 blocks of 4 lectures each year. That is there are 8 lectures per year for each level and no lectures are repeated. Lectures are about 40 to 45 minutes duration with some time allowed during the class for self-exploration. A guided self discovery and heuristic (problem solving) approach is followed by the Professor.
