ABOUT HEJNY METHOD:
The Hejny Method is a modern way of teaching maths and is increasingly popular in Czech schools. It allows pupils to learn mathematics with joy.
The method started to be more developed in the late 1980s by mathematician Milan Hejný, however the basics of the method had already been formulated by his father Vít Hejný in 1947.
Professor Milan Hejný continued his father´s work, and together with a group of colleagues fully developed a new teaching method that would allow children to enjoy the process of learning. The system is aimed at constructing a network of mental mathematical schemes, which are formed by each student individually.
Nowadays the method is being taught in 1/3 of all Czech elementary schools. You can find more about the method here.
