## Course Contents

Module 1: The Joy of Numbers: Patterns, Observations and Logical Reasoning

In this Module, we go into different open ended Mathematical explorations, and make Mathematical discoveries. We play with numbers, observe patterns and try to find the underlying reasons for our observations.

• Playing with Numbers: Building number sense through games.
• Possibilities: Realising that there are many unique ways to do something.
• Strategic thinking: Playing Mathematical games and thinking Strategically.
• Explorations: How to think about a big open ended problem and discover an answer to it.
• Number Patterns : Observing patterns, performing Math experiments and making discoveries.
Module 2: The Joy of Problem Solving: Mathematical Thinking and Problem Solving

In this module, we will go deeper in the wonderful world of Mathematical Thinking. The focus for this Module will be building Problem Solving skills and mindsets through puzzles, interesting problems and Strategy Games.

Module 3: The Joy of Geometry

In this module, we will explore the beautiful world of geometry. The focus for this Module will be building a deep sense of beauty and understanding of core Mathematical ideas around shapes, measurements and geometrical patterns.
