VitalSource eBooks FAQs

Pearson Mathematics Level 3a

This book is the first of two books for students working at Level 3 of the Mathematics and Statistics Curriculum.

It helps students to use basic addition and subtraction facts, and place values, to solve problems. They should recall most of their multiplication facts and will be developing their multiplicative thinking. There are new chapters covering Geometry and Measurement topics.

Mathematics is all about solving problems and not about doing pages of sums, so this book provides plenty of opportunity for students to put their mathematical knowledge to work in real contexts across all the strands.

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.

Whole-school print and online programme
Now you can ensure that the same methodology can be applied across the school from Levels 1-4.

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

Motivate 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.
