Davis® Mastery for Maths

We understand...
Maths difficulties including Dyscalculia

Traditionally, maths is memorised. Davis makes maths memorable.

So they tried and tried to teach you maths. And you tried and tried to learn. But it’s just been so hard, right?

Would you like to finally get what it’s all about? To learn maths in a way that sticks? To start getting more and more right answers, and know that they’re right?

With Davis, you can.

What You Will Get From The Programme

Many maths interventions will try to tutor you in maths skills and topics without addressing the reasons why they have been difficult for you in the past.

This is like trying to build an upper floor of a building without putting in place the floors below or the foundations.

Building a strong foundation and getting to the root cause of confusion is our specialty! Typically, programme graduates experience enhanced confidence, clarity, accuracy, and resilience when working in maths. It is not uncommon for test results to increase 30-40% from their previous levels.

Davis Maths Mastery helps you to:

  • Master the powerful foundation concepts that enable you to think like a mathematician

  • Effectively retain maths facts using your imagination rather than your memory

  • Feel at home with both numerical and word-based maths problems

  • Enhance your sequencing and logic

  • Understand time, and take control of it in your life

  • Grow your self-confidence as a mathematician — or rebuild it if it has been damaged by previous negative experiences.

“The Davis Maths Mastery course matched the pace my child needed to learn. I witnessed my son grasp concepts with speed and clarity, growing in confidence and excitement to learn more. Maths very quickly became his favorite subject.

We were both blown away by how quickly years of lost learning were set in a foundation which became easy to build upon. He can’t remember the time he did not understand Maths.”

The Davis approach goes to the root issues that cause some people to have problems understanding and learning maths with traditional teaching methods. Visual-spatial thinkers are often confused by the words and symbols which describe maths functions. When the foundation concepts for understanding all mathematics are mastered, learning maths becomes easy.

Like Davis® Reading and Writing Mastery Programme, the first step in Davis® Maths Mastery Programme is to enable children and adults to control disorientation. Once students can be sure that their perceptions are accurate, they can resolve any confusions about maths with methods that build upon their creative and imaginative strengths.

The length of a Davis® Maths Mastery Programme varies, depending on the needs of the individual. Usually, the Facilitator will schedule 5 to 8 days. Less time may be required if the client has already completed a basic Davis Dyslexia Correction program. The programme is appropriate for children age 8 and over, and adults of any age.

Davis® Maths Mastery programmes address:

  • Foundation concepts for understanding and learning maths

  • Numbers, numerals, quantities, and counting

  • Place value

  • Arithmetic operations

  • Fractions and decimals

  • Word problem comprehension

  • Learning maths facts like basic addition or multiplication tables

  • Telling time or keeping track of time

  • Reading or using a calendar

  • Making change

  • Balancing a checkbook

  • Sequencing and Logic

Basic Outline of a Davis® Maths Mastery Program:

  • Davis Perceptual Ability Assessment and Symptoms Profile Interview

  • Davis Orientation Counseling®

  • Mastery of basic language symbols, as needed

  • Introduction to Davis Symbol Mastery®

  • Mastery of the foundation concepts underlying all mathematics: Change, Cause-Effect, Before-After, Consequence, Time, Sequence, and Order vs. Disorder

  • Davis Maths Function Exercises: Twelve exercises which quickly lead to competency with dividing three-place numbers including decimals.

  • Symbol Mastery practice on Story Problem Trigger Words: For example the word “by.” The common meaning in everyday language would be “close to.” There are two separate meanings which must be mastered for accurate comprehension in math — for multiplication the meaning would be “using as a multiplier,” and for division the meaning would be “into groups of.”

  • Comprehension practice reading story problems, as needed.
