National Curriculum Alignment
If you’re looking for an overview of how Math-U-See aligns with the Australian National Curriculum and are not quite sure of your preferred approach, please see this overview document.
Math-U-See Based Alignment
To maximise a student’s ease in mastering maths, or as a response to intervention, Math-U-See teaches using a sequential, student-paced and mastery-based framework.
Our research and evidence-based sequential methodology is of outstanding benefit to students as they develop a concrete understanding in one maths operation, before progressing to another. Our focus is on the student understanding and applying real maths concepts using auditory, visual and kinaesthetic modes, and to progress through our learning levels with confidence. Mastery in each foundational area is achieved before progressing to the next, and as a result Math-U-See does not comply on a year-by-year basis with the ACARA guidelines. Students cover all learning areas in a modified sequence.
The following documentation shows how Math-U-See aligns with National Curriculum guidelines and outlines objectives achieved when teaching according to our preferred, and most effective, manner of maths instruction.
As a registered school, training organisation, parent or home educator, you may be required to follow our National Curriculum’s spiral-based approach to maths education.
The Senior Numeracy Consultant and Manager of Special Pedagogies (T-9) with the Northern Territory Government Department of Education has thoroughly reviewed Math-U-See and developed these simple-to-use documents to support your effective use of Math-U-See within ACARA's framework.
Currently covering from Foundation to Year 9, these documents clearly outline the specific Math-U-See lessons you can use to teach maths in a multi sensory way using our hands-on Manipulatives, simple-to-use Teacher Instruction Packs and comprehensive Student Workbooks.
The complete documentation of Maths Australia’s Math-U-See Program is a work in progress. As the relevant compliance and development documentation becomes available, we will post it here on our website.
