Teacher Dashboard with updated resources

Series overview

Maths Plus is a whole-school maths program that offers explicit instruction, practice and consolidation activities, problem-solving tasks, and mentals and homework activities, for F–6 and K–6.

Practice, with a view to mastery, underpins the spiral approach used in the Maths Plus program, within and across year levels. Students revisit mathematics topics at different points in the year, and are supported by the extra practice offered by the Mentals and Homework Books. This helps students make connections over time, supporting their mathematical recall and fluency.

Features

  • Colour-coded pages to represent the content strands of Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability
  • ‘Find a topic’ index, which allows teachers to teach by topic
  • A dictionary of mathematical terms
  • Teaching resources, including curricula and planning documents, assessment and diagnostic term reviews, and answers
  • Student resources, including learning, support and extension activities
