Committed to build a mathematically-competent society

We bet on a competency-based learning of mathematical concepts founded on a solid teaching basis

For students…

The maths classroom should be an inspiring environment that invites them to learn and develop their full potential

To do so, it will be necessary to:


  • Present the mathematical contents and skills with educational discernment.
  • Respect the different learning paces of the students.
  • Give relevance to the mathematical processes: problem solving, reasoning, connecting, communicating and representing. Without forgetting the contents.

For Innovamat, doing maths is…

Problem solving

Being able to face unknown situations, design strategies to solve them, analyse their possible solutions and think about new questions.

Reasoning and testing

Being able to analyse the situations, make conjectures and check them, deduce and argue the statements we’ve made.


Being able to discover the existing relationships between the different ideas and concepts of the mathematical world, or between these and the world around us.

Communicating and representing

Being able to transmit and interpret the mathematical information through any channel: graphic, written, oral, with the help of manipulatives or by technology.
