ORIGO Education brings a conceptual understanding of mathematics to the forefront of teaching and learning. Their instructional approach builds on students' natural ability to develop understanding and number sense. It helps students avoid misconceptions and promotes confidence with efficient thinking strategies. Games and practical applications help to cement the concepts and skills.
ORIGO believes: Learning is a social process that requires language and discourse. Students who develop strong thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills grow into productive, innovative members of society. Content taught conceptually, and in a logical, learner-friendly sequence develops deep understanding and success. Technology empowers rather than replaces educators. ORIGO is proud to make learning mathematics meaningful, enjoyable, and accessible for all, across a milestone of 25 years and counting.
