Bust-a-Burpee is a Strength-Based Mathematics program, written around the Australian curriculum. The program flips maths education on it’s head, literally! The children are thoroughly engaged in their learning through a variety of physical activities that assist with the following:
- Learning needs
- Behavioural needs
- Academic stress
- Childhood obesity
- School engagement
The Bust-a-Burpee philosophy is a simple one to understand:
- Get the children out of their seats
- Remove the focus from the stress of academic performance/success
- Apply learning to everyday life for long term learning and establishment of strategies to cope in future, relatable situations
