TESTIMONIALS

Yea High School has trialled the Maths Mate textbook in year 7 this year.  We have found it to be beneficial to the class and works well in a different ability classroom.  We are going to be using the textbooks in both year 7 and 8 next year.

I have only starting trialling the Maths Mate Textbooks this year.  I love the colour and format and the variety of styles when getting students to engage in the variety of topics. The students really like doing the activities, tasks and even the tests.

No more trawling the internet for questions, puzzles and rich tasks. They're all here!

We cannot wait to get back into the classroom next week and start utilising everything and sharing all these new and exciting tasks with the rest of our team.

One of the real benefits I have seen in my class using the Maths Mate textbook is how quick they are to start the application part of their work (when compared to a traditional textbook). No need to rule up a page, but rather the focus is on the maths.

Thanks for providing the books, they’re even better than I expected them to be. Yesterday I used the ‘Operation Reef Rescue’ in the Statistics book with a student who had a blast working his way through it (as did his learning support).

The rich tasks and the way the books are separated into topics is fantastic. This allows for learners to use one book at a time and for review purposes, they can easily find the book they need to go back over any missed concepts. The importance of writing in Mathematics is huge and thus the write-in format with the ability for students to unpack word problems for example, is so important too.
