The RAMR cycle is at the heart of YuMi Deadly Mathematics resources. It advocates the use of four components as a cycle for planning and teaching mathematics lessons. It proposes:
- working from reality and local culture (prior experience and everyday kinaesthetic activities)
- abstracting mathematics ideas from everyday instances to mathematical forms through an active pedagogy (kinaesthetic, physical, virtual, pictorial, language and symbolic representations, i.e. body → hand → mind)
- consolidating the new ideas as mathematics through practice and connections
- reflecting these ideas back to reality through a focus on applications, problem-solving, flexibility, reversing and generalising.
