Unit of Inquiry(UOI)- Transdisciplinary Learning:

WAIS PYP focuses on the inquiry method for students, within a framework guided by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance. We integrate the core knowledge of Language, Mathematics, Science and Sociology into a whole unit of inquiry. This programme breaks the boundaries of traditional teaching, using the world as teaching material. Problem driven concepts lead students to develop disciplinary thematic inquiry.  IB schools around the world have a common educational philosophy of improving teaching and learning for students of all cultures by offering challenging international education programs.
