Learning at Yup
Our Learning Fundamentals are how we drive students to develop the skills and mindset for long-term understanding.
Framework for Problem Solving
Yup tutors teach students to use a set framework for solving problems called UPSCR: Understand, Plan, Solve, Check, and Reflect. Based on the work of mathematician George Pólya, UPSCR is a set of habits students can apply to math—and beyond.
Visible Student Thinking
Yup tutors ask questions to draw out student thinking and see what they know. Before a session starts, students share any progress and explain what is confusing them. Once in the session, they continue to share pictures of their work and answer questions. To round off each problem, tutors ask students to summarize how they solved it because synthesis reinforces learning!
Our first two fundamentals push students to engage in “productive struggle”, which, according to Dr. Carol Dweck, strengthens students’ growth mindset. A growth mindset emphasizes embracing challenges and appreciating the learning process. Students with this mindset have a more positive outlook on learning.
