Part of the series Primary Maths - Teacher Resource Books.
Primary Maths breathes life into the Australian Curriculum by providing a series of mathematics activities that encourage students to think about situations and problems, talk to others about their ideas and develop their own strategies as confident learners. Primary Maths is based on the philosophy that students learn mathematical skills and concepts in everyday life as they interact with their environment and the people around them.
Primary Maths Teacher Resource Book
The Primary Maths Teacher Resource Book provides a wealth of information and ideas that can be used as a foundation for the year's work or as best suits your needs. The attractive, easy-to-use format is flexible enough to suit all primary classrooms and provides inspiration to help you develop your own activities. Each Primary Maths Teacher Resource Book has been carefully planned into 36 units of work, focusing on one substrand per week for deep and focused learning. The concise, yet comprehensive, lesson notes suggest a sequence for learning. Page references to the Student Activity Books and Practice & Homework Books are provided alongside these notes for easy reference. The program includes ideas to introduce each lesson and ways to relate to everyday contexts. The suggested activities support learners of all abilities, and over 70 blackline masters and assessment pages are included in each book. The Primary Maths Teacher Resource Book completely covers the suggested content of the Australian curriculum and also includes some additional topics that help introduce and extend mathematical concepts. Along with the three content strands (Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability), the four proficiency strands of the Australian curriculum are clearly listed and defined. While the proficiency strands are interrelated, clearly defining four separate strands helps you to think about what resources you might use in your classes.
