Pearson Mathematics is changing the way Mathematics is taught in New Zealand schools

Written by New Zealand Mathematics Specialist Charlotte Wilkinson, Pearson Mathematics is whole-school print and online programme incorporating all strands of the New Zealand curriculum.

Level 1 Independent Activity Cards

  • An integral part of the Pearson Mathematics approach is the ability for students to develop the ability to work independently on Mathematics problems. The Level 1 Independent Activity Cards enable the teacher to interact with the individual student then, over the course of the series, the teacher can step back and let the student work on their own.
  • The laminated (wipe-clean) cards provide more than 280 activities for children at each of the six developmental stages of early
    arithmetic learning. 
  • Answers to all activity questions are provided in the Teachers’ Guide along with links to the curriculum.

Independent Activity Cards Level 1 - Set 3 (40 double-sided cards)

In building their concepts of Number at Level 1 of the Mathematics & Statistics Curriculum, children normally pass through six developmental stages: from being unable to count at all, to solving addition and subtraction problems efficiently using basic facts. The components of Pearson Mathematics Level 1- Set 3 are for children working on Stages 4 and into Stage 5. This programme particularly emphasises Number, but also gives attention to the other strands of Mathematics.

Series overview

Pearson Mathematics is changing the way Mathematics is taught in New Zealand schools.

New Zealand Curriculum aligned
Pearson Mathematics matches the New Zealand curriculum exactly and completely – there is no need to find additional materials. Existing material can be used alongside Pearson Mathematics as supplements or reinforcement.

Comprehensive coverage
Pearson Mathematics covers all the Measurement, Geometry and Statistics strands, not just Number.

Now you can ensure that the same methodology can be applied across the school from Levels 1-4.

Motivates students
Now you can keep students motivated and stimulated with a variety of resources. Engage them with material that makes them eager to progress.

Mathematics literacy
Give your students the skills to read, write and think mathematically through a range of problem-solving activities. Mathematics literacy components encourage students to read, understand and manipulate word problems.

Problem solving
Pearson Mathematics helps students learn how to solve problems mathematically rather than just doing algorithms.

Mini projects
Your students’ ability to solve problems is assessed at the end of each unit through mini-projects which reinforce their problem-solving skills within real-life situations, making them aware of the relevance of maths to their daily lives.

Easy interaction
Pearson Mathematics is visually stimulating but not cluttered. The pages of all components are appealing and easy to navigate.

Proven results
Pearson Mathematics uses a well-researched methodology used throughout New Zealand to deliver proven results at all levels.
