Foundational Math and Science is a two part course, starting with 50 minutes of introductory math, a twenty minute break and then 50 minutes of science. Most of the science lessons will include a hands on science experiment or practical inquiry. The maths is largely a verbal and visual exploration using tangible resources such as dice, play dough and colour, with an introduction to numerals and mathematical abstraction. It is suitable for younger children who are seeking to be inspired and have their curiosity for math and science grown and nurtured.

Example classes include:

- The golden ratio and plants

- Historical counting systems of the Babylonians, Egyptians and Romans

- Acids and bases, and pH testing

- The movement of the Sun. Earth and Moon and how these influence the seasons, night and day and the solstices

- Atoms and the periodic table

- Density, gravity, mass and volume

- Constructing graphs

- DNA and gene pools, natural selection and influences on the gene pool

- Neurones and how we learn

The science part will cover a broad range of topics for example:

- Acids and bases, and pH testing

- The movement of the Sun. Earth and Moon and how these influence the seasons, night and day and the solstices

- Atoms, the periodic table, electrons and atomic bonding

- DNA and gene pools, natural selection and influences on the gene pool

- Neurones and how we learn

- The curvature of space-time

- Cells and their machinery
