The Matrix Method for MathsTM

  • Understanding
  • Step 1. Theory
    Developing a thorough understanding of concepts is the first step to mastering Maths. Learn from Matrix Theory Books that are carefully structured to help you understand even the most complex stuff!
  • Step 2. Application
    Memorising formulas will only get you so far. Consolidate your understanding by learning how to apply concepts and techniques to solve problems.
  • Step 3. Examples
    Work through examples that will actually be in your exam. You'll learn how to present your solution for maximum marks in exams.
  • Exam Skills (50% of Course Time)
  • Step 4. Concept Checks
    Learn the most efficient problem solving techniques with different types of exam-style questions.
  • Step 5. Workbook
    Practice sharpening your skills with hundreds of exam-style questions. It's important to keep practising as this is the only way to find the right balance between speed and accuracy.
  • Step 6. Quiz and Feedback
    Weekly quizzes and feedback provide you with opportunities to identify your gaps and address them ASAP.
  • Step 7. Topic Test
    Working under exam conditions will boost your confidence for the real thing. Learn from your mistakes and fill your gaps so you are continually improving.

How is Matrix different?


    Matrix Others



Vast classroom teaching experience, HSC and/or university teaching experience with an ability to explain concepts clearly


Have little or no actual teaching experience, cannot explain difficult concepts in a manner that students can understand



Teaching program that covers the NSW board of studies syllabus. Structured learning system that allows students to develop sound study habits every week


Most private tutors and other tuition centres do not follow a set structure; rather they have an ad-hoc approach without considering timing and outcomes



A full set of resources written by academics and education researchers. Online access to Supplementary exam papers / texts with top responses.


Only address content that students raise, use generic textbooks.



Short quizzes and topic tests held under strict exam conditions to ensure students have a solid understanding of the subject


No exam style quizzes and test that assess the student’s weaknesses, hence not being able to identifying their learning needs



Weekly tracking of Grades, Quiz and Topic Test results so student and parents can monitor their progress.


No measured tracking process so they cannot tell if the student is struggling or improving.

Learning Management System


Share information, academic resources and advice with classmates from over 220 schools.


Do not have the library of resources or past exams that can help students excel

One-to-One Workshops


Free workshops to target individual learning needs


No additional support outside the lesson.
