Why choose Winning With Numbers?

Winning With Numbers has been created by people who understand school leadership, curriculum design, teaching and learning and home-school links.  The Winning With Numbers platform provides engaging videos and online questions that replicate the fast-paced responses required in direct teaching, providing the perfect follow-up for independent learning in class or at home. When learning independently, children are able to easily access feedback and precision-pitched support. WWN is a fully-resourced platform for blended learning and staff training; designed specifically to be the perfect solution for teaching essential Number Knowledge in a daily whole class session, for intervention and for homework.  Some WWN benefits:

'Teach Me!' videos and Instructional Goal videos can be played in class, and watched again at home.

Every question is assessed online, with actionable feedback provided instantly.

Who we are and what we believe

Winning With Numbers is created by Ben Harding. The entire program is based on 4 fundamental beliefs:

  • We believe that basic Number Knowledge is best acquired through a systematic and synthetic (as in ‘putting together pre-existing parts’) construction.
  • We believe that the biggest driver for success is the accuracy, detail and sophistication held within the sequence of learning.
  • We believe that explicit and direct instruction is the most efficient teaching strategy for this curriculum domain.
  • We believe that digital technologies provide a crucial role in maintaining a ‘high press’ on multi-part cognitive processing speed in the absence of face-to-face teaching.
