What is Pearson Mathematics

written by Charlotte Wilkinson. Published by Pearson NZ.

Pearson Mathematics is a series of textbooks and teacher guides that provides teachers with consistency and continuity in delivering a comprehensive mathematics programme from level 1 to level 4. The books are designed in units of work as set out in the teacher guides that build up through and across each level. This allows for planning to meet the learning needs of each student in each unit rather than just working through one particular textbook.

Teacher guides have references to Figure it Out Activities at levels 2, 3, and 4

Planning Templates available on the members content area are populated with Pearson Mathematics, Wilkie Way resources and Activities from NZMaths.

See the overview chart to see how the units flow and fit together.

See the Powerpoint The Complete Pearson Mathematics

The texts are written specifically for the NZ Mathematics and Statistics curriculum covering the content as set out at each curriculum level. The series encourages a range of pedagogical practices with an emphasis on problem solving as well as students developing sound mathematical knowledge.

Pearson Mathematics Assessment Tool

The Pearson Assessment tool allows you to confidently use the correct text level to meet individualised learning plans.

Challenges:

Open ended extension activities intended to challenge children’s thinking – to take the activity one step further

Mini Projects:

Open ended mathematical applications to allow children to:

  • Develop problem solving strategies
  • Demonstrate use of mathematical knowledge
  • Build further mathematical knowledge
  • Experience meaningful contexts for mathematics

These mini projects can also be used as assessment tasks with assessment criteria set out in the teachers guides.

Using the Pearson Mathematics Assessment Tool (an assessment interview) enables teachers to find the most likely starting unit for each of their students. this tool is specifically designed to provide information for teaching and learning purposes. As it uses the same stage numbers as the GLOSS tool it can also be used as a summative tool.

- Teachers Guide (includes BLM for Games and Activities)

The teachers’ guides are the centre of the programme:

- Level 1 is cross referenced to Wilkie Way Resources.

- Levels 2-4 provide references to M.O.E. Figure it Out Resources

- Learning outcomes for each chapter or stage of learning.

- Tips on how to introduce and teach specific topics.

- Background information on why certain areas need to be taught.

- Suggestions for further activities.

- Photocopiable record sheets to track children’s progress.

- Answers to pupil text and maintenance book questions.

At Level 1

 There is 1 teacher guide and 4 sets of activity cards

CD included with 80 activity sheets and a more detailed teachers guide including learning objectives.

At Level 2
There are 2 pupils books and 2 teacher guides

Covers Number and Algebra, both knowledge and strategy in the addition / subtraction, multiplication / division and proportions and ratio domains at curriculum level 2. The books also cover Geometry + Measure and Statistics strands at Level 2 using mathematical thinking and number knowledge from level 2. 

Book 2a stage 4 – 5

Practice workbooks available from Wilkie Way Members Content Area - for an annual subscription print as many copies of as many workbooks as you need.

 At Level 3
There are 2 pupils textbooks, 2 pupil workbooks and 2 teacher guides.

These books cover number + algebra in both knowledge and strategy in the addition / subtraction, multiplication / division and proportions and ratios domains at curriculum level 3.
The books also cover Geometry + Measure and Statistics strands using mathematical thinking and knowledge from Level 3.

Book 3a stage 5 – 6.

Maintenance Workbooks

maintenancebook_3a.jpg maintenancebook_3b.jpg
These books are intended to provide students with opportunities to consolidate prior learning by revising key knowledge and using their mathematics to solve problems.
The books are set out in weekly assignments (9 each term). Each assignment revises some key knowledge to remind students of what they already know.
The problems are designed to make students think mathematically and use problem solving strategies rather than simply recall set procedures.

These write on workbooks can be used in class or as homework assignments.

 

At Level 4
There are 2 pupil textbooks, 2 pupil workbooks and 2 teacher guides.

These books cover number & algebra knowledge and strategy. Students must have good additive strategies and will further develop their multiplicative and early proportional thinking strategies.

Work in Geometry and Measurement and Statistics will also demand multiplicative and proportional reasoning.

Book 4a stage 6 – 7.

Assessment Tool

This is an assessment interview giving a strategy stage for each of the three domains: Addition & Subtraction, Multiplication & Division , Proportions & Ratios.

This support booklet makes it a very easy tool to administer and provides in depth analysis of student responses to provide information for teaching and learning as well as strategy stages and summary assessment statements and where next statements 

The student strategy stage achieved will direct you to the likely place in the Pearson Mathematics the students should be working from for their next stage in learning.
