A unique approach to teaching
Four key pillars underpin Sparx Maths to create a completely unique approach to teaching and learning maths.
Research and data driven
Driven by research and data
Carefully and intricately designed content is of the utmost importance. Every single question is devised and handwritten by our Content Team which comprises mathematicians, scientists, teachers, tutors, graphic designers and grammar experts.
We have combined our individual experiences and knowledge with hours of development, classroom observation and data gathering to produce content that is high-quality, inclusive, designed to ensure maximum student engagement and that promotes genuine learning.
Questions are backed up by tutorial videos on every single topic that help explain concepts in different ways and encourage independent learning. Our Scheme of Learning maps to the English national curriculum and is aligned with every major exam board. Schools are also able to flexibly organise Sparx content to support their own Schemes of Learning.
Powerful, intelligent technology incorporating human-generated, research-based algorithms sits behind the Sparx Maths platform.
We understand that artificial intelligence (AI) can be a challenging subject, but for us it’s simple. AI is not about replacing teachers; it’s about using the very best of modern technology to work in parallel with the core skills of the teacher, supporting and augmenting what they do on a daily basis.
Whether that’s removing onerous and time consuming admin tasks, creating completely personalised homework, or providing real-time powerful insights into student progress, our adaptive technology provides teachers and learners with unparalleled support.
Support of a community
Support of a community
When schools sign up for Sparx Maths, they join a thriving community providing practical support, mentoring, training, CPD, peer engagement, access to a wealth of research and data, and some fantastic, fun community events too.
Collaboration with schools has been a core part of Sparx’ development. Our Product Team regularly visit our partner schools seeing what’s working well, looking out for anything that needs refining, and listening to Sparx Leaders, teachers and students.
