Pearson Mathematics is becoming Maths Aotearoa

written by Charlotte Wilkinson. A new edition published by Edify

 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. Maths Aotearoa makes the links to the learning progressions as well as to the curriculum document. This allows for planning to meet the learning needs of each student in each unit rather than just working through one particular textbook.

The series encourages a range of pedagogical practices with an emphasis on problem solving as well as students developing sound mathematical knowledge

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

What teacher say about the:

Pearson Mathematics Textbooks, Cards & Teacher Guides        

The Primary Mathematics Assessment Tool also published by Edify 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.

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.


 

The Teachers Books are the centre of the programme:

- Level 1 is referenced to Wilkie Way Resources.

- Levels 2-4 is referenced to Wilkie way resources & M.O.E. Figure it Out Resources

- Concepts and key knowledge

- 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

Designed to be used in both traditional and playbased classroom settings.

Maths Aoteroa Teacher Book 1a & 100 Activity Cards

Four integrated units of work covering all strands of the curriculum document.

Maths Aotearoa Teacher Book 1b & 100 Activity Cards

Four more integrated units of work covering all strands of the curriculum document

 

 

 

At Level 2
Maths Aotearoa Teacher book 2a and student textbook 2a

Maths Aotearoa Teacher book 2b and student textbook 2b

Covers Number and Algebra, both knowledge and strategy in the number and algebra strand of curriculum level 2.The books also cover Geometry + Measure and Statistics strands at Level 2 using mathematical thinking and number knowledge from level 2. 

 

 

 At Level 3
Teacher Book 3a      Student textbook 3a      Student write on maintenance book 3a

Teacher Book 3b      Student textbook 3b      Student write on maintenance book 3b

These books cover number + algebra in both knowledge and strategy in the number and algebra strand of curriculum level 3. The books also cover Geometry + Measure and Statistics strands using mathematical thinking and knowledge from Level 3.


Maintenance Workbooks

 
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
Teacher Book 4a      Student textbook 4a      Student write on maintenance book 4a

Teacher Book 4b      Student textbook 4b      Student write on maintenance book 4b

These books cover number + algebra in both knowledge and strategy in the number and algebra strand of curriculum level 4. The books also cover Geometry + Measure and Statistics strands using mathematical thinking and knowledge from Level 4.

Primary Mathematics Assessment Tool

This assessment tools is to assess students ability to use their mathematics to sole problems and uses the curriculum levels and the learning progressions as the measure.

Sections 1 and 2 covering level 1 are conducted as an interview.

Sections 3 and 4 covering level 2 are conducted with a group under guidance.

Sections 5 and 6 covering levels 3 and 4 the students work on the problems individually followed by teacher conferencing.
