Making Maths Count
As educators, our goal is to prepare students for life beyond the classroom, and therefore the mathematics we teach must be relevant to students’ everyday lives. Making Maths Count is a practical resource for primary teachers, offering ‘low threshold, high ceiling’ activities in real-world contexts, with links to the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. The depth and breadth of these activities support student engagement and motivation, leading to further learning and deeper understanding.
Maths Sequences for the Early Years
Maths Sequences for the Early Years features original learning sequences designed specifically for teachers to use with students in Foundation to Year 2 (ages 5 to 8) and aligned with the content strands of the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. The learning sequences focus on problem-solving as the ‘beginning’ of learning and understanding – problem-solving leads to reasoning, then builds understanding, and develops fluency through application.
More Daily Workouts for Foundation to Year 6
Measurement and geometry are important skills for everyday living and form an important part of contemporary schooling for all teachers and students. More Daily Workouts is an essential and practical resource for teachers, designed to build students’ mental imagery skills, develop their learning strategies and support their mathematical understanding. It offers a comprehensive range of activities linked to the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics, Measurement and Space, across all primary year levels (Foundation to Year 6).
Challenging Mathematical Tasks
Challenging Mathematical Tasks supports the idea that students learn best when they work on problems that they do not yet know how to solve. Peter Sullivan’s research shows that many students do not fear challenges in mathematics, but welcome them. And rather than having teachers instruct them, these students prefer to work out solutions for themselves.
Open-Ended Maths Activities
Open-Ended Maths Activities discusses the features of ‘good’ mathematical questions. It provides practical advice on how teachers can create their own open-ended and problem-solving questions, and use them effectively in the classroom.
Building Numeracy has been designed to assist all teachers, at all levels, to develop expertise and confidence in diagnosing student difficulties and classroom intervention strategies.
Daily Workouts for Foundation to Year 6
Daily Workouts is an essential and practical resource for teachers, designed to build students’ mental computation skills, develop their learning strategies and support their mathematical understanding. It offers a comprehensive range of activities linked to the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics, Number and Algebra strand, across all primary year levels.
Building Engagement in Middle Years Mathematics
Building Engagement in Middle Years Mathematics provides teachers with a range of original learning sequences focused on the mainstream content of the Australian Curriculum. Each sequence has been developed in line with the most recent research into mathematical learning and is designed to have a low floor and high ceiling, with multiple entry points for Years 5-8 students of varying abilities.
