Baggin' the Dragon - Maths Content

At the heart of Baggin’ the Dragon is a comprehensive bank of Questions that have been skillfully hand-crafted and sequenced by experienced teachers.

The EdAlive educational team created the core teaching sequences at the heart of Baggin’ the Dragon Maths Online by deconstructing the curricula from many jurisdictions around the world including Australia, New Zealand, Key US States, United Kingdom and Ireland. These fine-grained educational elements were then sequenced to form the EdAlive Curriculum. The result has been the creation of a matrix of Questions that is both broad and progressive in its scope.

Once formed the EdAlive content creation team set about building a diverse, broad-ranging set of Questions to teach and illustrate each of the identified outcomes. By this process the rich resource that is the EdAlive Question Bank was created. It is this carefully crafted matrix of instructional material on which the EdAlive curriculum correlations, content selections and the automated Adaptive Learning system draw.
