The conceptual learning series of topic-based courses help learners understand the concept and its application in the real world.

Pupils may learn procedures, memorize formulas and rules to complete math problems, and still many times do not understand the underlying concepts behind the calculations they just have carried out. This inevitably makes it difficult for pupils to progress or appreciate the connection between various mathematical topics.
Once the pupil has grasped a mathematical concept and can apply it to solve problems they begin to develop a deeper understanding and an appreciation for mathematics.
