Why Maths Mate WorkS
Maths Mate has become a favourite with teachers, parents and students because of its ability to simplify the process of mastering mathematical skills. In the last 25 years the program has helped more than 5 million students reach higher levels of maths proficiency. It encourages students by highlighting their progress, and demonstrates how learning new maths skills is achievable.
Students are inspired by the awareness that learning maths is achievable. The constant revision of key mathematical skills allows students to gain confidence in their abilities while simultaneously understanding the process and importance of becoming an independent learner.
Maths Mate makes it easy for parents to understand their student's strengths and weaknesses, and provides parents with the right intervention materials required to accelerate their child's progress. They appreciate the guidance given by the teacher and the importance of the program.
Clear and comprehensive diagnostic results provide teachers with the information needed to support efficient learning. Maths Mate identifies each skill which requires development, and provides the resources needed to build those skills.
The Maths Mate program brings teachers, parents and students together to form a dynamic school community focused on efficient learning. With Australian Curriculum alignment, schools can be confident that they are maximizing outcomes for effort invested.
We are delighted with Maths Mate. Staff appreciate just how valuable they are for the detailed feedback they provide on the progress of individual students and of the class. They are also helpful in motivating students and have been part of our success in improving our state test scores. Parents appreciate the clarity of the feedback from the program and understand the importance of the Skill Builder worksheets in the process of intervention.

We really like using the Maths Mate for Year 7 to 10 at our school. It gives us great diagnostics into what each individual child can and cannot do, so we can integrate more meaningful differentiation into our instruction.

My three children started using the program in primary school and continued every year until Year 10. I sincerely believe that Maths Mate is a major contributor to their success in maths. They all have a confidence that comes with consistent repetition and familiarity with each topic area, and the security that they have no holes in their knowledge base. This is invaluable when they enter Year 11 maths where multiple areas are drawn together. I highly recommend Maths Mate to any parent who wishes to help their child achieve their potential and be confident and competent in maths.
