Primary Maths Series — New Edition
We’ve made the best even better. Easy to navigate and use, the new edition of our Primary Maths Series helps you teach more efficiently.
The Maths — No Problem! New Edition has everything you need to successfully teach mathematics using the mastery approach. The Primary Series is recommended by the DfE for schools on the Teaching for Mastery Programme. It’s a complete maths programme for your school — from Reception through Year 6 — developed by some of the top authors and advisers in the field and backed by decades of research.
New Edition updates include:
A complete Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) programme, including workbook-journals, online teacher guides and picture books for Reception
An enhanced focus on mathematical language, including a ‘maths language’ feature within the Teacher Guide for every maths lesson.
A new worksheet structure, carefully varied to ensure timely progression, support day-to-day assessment and guide pupils to a deeper understanding of key concepts.
A focus on real-world contexts to help pupils see the importance of mathematics in their everyday lives, and inclusivity so all pupils can relate to the content.
“The whole approach is pedagogically sound which makes it completely compelling. I’ve not seen anything like this in education, ever.”– Mark Cotton, headteacher at Our Lady of Pity Primary School, Wirral, England
What is maths mastery?
Maths mastery is a method of teaching that uses the international research of psychologists and mathematicians, including Jean Piaget, Zoltan Dienes, Jerome Bruner, Richard Skemp and Lev Vygotsky, to create an environment in which pupils from all attainment levels can thrive. The whole class works through the programme at the same pace with ample time to master each topic before moving on. Ideas are revisited at higher levels as the curriculum builds.
The elements of a Maths — No Problem! lesson:
Tasks and activities are designed to be accessible for all pupils while still containing challenging components for advanced learners.
Maths lessons and activities, based on Richard Skemp’s work, teach problem-solving approaches to encourage higher-level thinking.
The CPA approach
Pupils learn new concepts initially using concrete items such as counters, then progress to pictorial representations before finally using abstract symbols, such as the equals sign.
Questions and examples are carefully varied by expert authors to encourage pupils to see there is more than one way to solve a problem and avoid mechanical repetition.
“We believe that the mathematical opportunities for life that Maths — No Problem! has brought to our children are priceless.”– Rosie Ross, Assistant Headteacher at St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School, Wirral, England.
