Snappet Math

Our mathematics teaching method has a proven didactic basis for good arithmetic learning and is in line with the ERWD protocol. The offering fully covers the core and supply goals of the SLO. With every lesson, you can directly see which SLO goals you are working towards. The mathematics lessons have a structured build-up that aligns with the latest didactic insights for the subject. Think of the action model, iceberg model, main phases model, and the three-stroke model. With each instruction lesson, we clearly identify which learning phases, mainlines, and action levels you go through.

Workbooks and concrete materials and digital course material

Our teaching method for arithmetic offers an optimal balance between digital course material, workbooks, and concrete materials. Thanks to our collaboration with 2500 schools, we know precisely where and which strategies and exercises work best. And when you can work best in a workbook, digitally, or with concrete materials. Because your students record the intermediate steps of an assignment in the workbook, you can see precisely where you can correct a possible strategy error. With group 3, you can, if desired, work entirely in workbooks.

Three or four instruction lessons per week

Each lesson week there are three or four instruction lessons ready for you. You can spend the other lesson days on repetition, automatizing, memorizing, enriching, or deepening. In each lesson, the focus is on one learning goal. After the first instruction lesson, important learning goals regularly reappear in repetition lessons. In this way, every student gets time to master a goal or strategy.

Step-by-step instructions

The instructions from Snappet Mathematics align with direct instruction models such as EDI, IGDI, DIM, and ADI. If another form of instruction works better for a learning goal, we offer that. You gradually present the core of the learning goal to the class, at the different action levels. This way, students are challenged to establish relationships between the levels, thus developing mathematical concepts and procedures step by step.

Proven strategies

We based the range of arithmetic strategies on scientific research and the development experience of our education professionals and arithmetic experts. We first offer the basic strategy to all students, which is always clearly explained to the student. Difficult learning goals contain a short step-by-step plan. You first demonstrate this to the class, then you do it together with your group, and finally, the student practices independently (in line with the EDI model).

Lessons with a fixed structure

Lessons with a fixed structure

  1. Instruction and guided practice
    The lesson always starts with the introduction of the learning goal and the activation of prior knowledge. Then you give the interactive classroom instruction and let the students practice guided. During the guided practice, you receive direct feedback and see immediately whether your class has understood the lesson material.
  2. Extended instruction
    Based on the guided practice, you can well estimate which students still need extra help in the form of extended instruction on the same learning goal. We have already set this up for you.
  3. Independent processing
    After the (extended) instruction, the students independently work on the learning goal. After the first ten assignments, they continue to practice adaptively: we challenge them with assignments at their own level. When they have sufficiently practiced the learning goal, the students can continue to work on other, personal learning goals that you have set up for them in their work package.
No more tests needed

With Snappet Mathematics, there’s no need for separate testing. Formative testing is fully integrated into your students’ daily work, thanks to effective feedback and extensive analytical options. By the end of each week, you can determine whether your students have mastered the material for the goals offered, making separate tests generally unnecessary, which saves significant time. If you still wish to administer tests, they’re available for each grade level.

Support in lesson preparation

We assist you as much as possible in preparing for each instructional lesson, with comprehensive lesson guides (digitally or on paper), tips on the exercises, expectations for you and the students, and information about your students’ progress.

Automation in your lesson plan

Quickly learning to calculate is a vital prerequisite for developing new mathematical skills. Hence, automating and memorizing is a fixed part of Snappet Mathematics. Using exercises that students have to answer within a certain time, you test whether the student has automated the sum or still has to calculate it.

Differentiation in class

One of the challenges of every group is finding the balance between the needs of your whole group and those of individual students. With Snappet Mathematics, we offer you everything to make this differentiation effective, intuitive, and especially easy on a daily, weekly, and long-term basis.

Ownership and feedback to the student

It’s important that students challenge themselves to become owners of their own learning process. We provide students with insight into their learning process, making it easier for you to guide their ownership.

Enrichment for strong mathematicians

For strong mathematicians, we have made special enrichment material. These tasks are more challenging than regular exercises, for example, by using larger numbers and requiring higher thinking skills.

Learning routes for weak mathematicians

On most schools, there are students who, despite extra guidance, time, and tools, do not reach the fundamental level (1F) by the end of primary school. For these students, we have separate lesson plans ready: learning routes 2 and 3.

Support with our teaching methods

Our school advisors are happy to advise on the use of Snappet at the school level. You can easily schedule an online advice conversation to get help with things like:

  • The analysis and interpretation of learning results at school and class level
  • Further increasing learning results
  • Creating a continuous line within the school team
  • The choice for a (new) mathematics, spelling, or language method

We also offer various multi-day and one-time trainings for school teams, teachers, and Snappet coordinators. Each training is led by an expert trainer. The content of the training is agreed upon based on the needs of the participants or school. All trainings are CRKBO-accredited. Some of the training includes:

  • Differentiation in the classroom
  • Feedback and ownership
  • Analysis of learning results
  • Learning routes and care policy
