Bazalt HCO Singapore Math in The Netherlands

Utrecht MasterClass by Bazalt & HCO

This is the first course we offer to teachers. This course is designed to change mindset about what mathematics is and what roles teachers play in the class. Mathematics is a platform to develop thinking. It is not about memorization and following procedures blindly. In this course, teachers get to learn the key roles of visualization, patterns and number sense, plus all the human qualities that children develop when they are in our mathematics class. In Marshall Cavendish Institute, we believe that helping teachers change their mindset about teaching and learning is key to transforming the classroom into exciting places for learners.
