Higher-Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) distinguishes critical thinking skills from low-order learning outcomes, such as those attained by rote memorization.
HOTS is based on various taxonomies of learning, particularly by Benjamin Bloom in 1956. The chart shows a revised version of Bloom’s taxonomy from Anderson, L. W. & Krathwohl, D.R., et al (2001).
HOTS is believed to better prepare children beyond the standard school maths curriculum, and empower them to interpret ideas, information, discover new solutions and improve their understanding in maths.
HOTS questions encourage your child to explore, interpret ideas and arrive at solutions by themselves.
Every topic at every grade level is specially designed to improve problem solving skills which can then be applied to real life situations.
