Students fear failure and, too often, math.
What are two things that can help?
1. A mastery-based approach to learning
The word “mastery” gets thrown around a lot, but it’s not just a word to us at Hawkes Learning; it’s the core of what we do.
This type of learning ensures students with different skill sets understand the same material by adapting to their needs and providing additional support for those who require more time.
A mastery-based program should set clear goals for students, hold them accountable for achievement, and reward them fully for success.

2. Detailed, error-specific feedback
Most students don’t see that mistakes are learning opportunities rather than evidence of not being a “math person.”
The Explain Error tutorial diagnoses exactly where students went wrong on a problem. It explains specific errors and allows students to learn from their own mistakes in real time, answering the most important question: Why am I wrong?
