Get the maths program that delivers exceptional results for students and teachers
Give your students a deeper understanding and greater confidence of mathematical concepts
Great for 1-on-1 and group lessons
The Math-U-See program is designed for differentiation, so you can tailor your teaching to suit each students' varying needs. This approach works easily 1-on-1 or with group lessons.
Every level comes with video lessons, student and teacher workbooks and solutions, so you can be confident to deliver the program accurately. We also have training available to help you get the best results.
Foundational through to University level
Whether you're teaching younger children, or advanced-level maths students preparing for major exams, Math-U-See has got you covered. Our levels start with Primer (a fun introduction to maths for the little ones) and progress all the way through to an advanced Calculus level, with each level sequentially building on the previous topics.
Designed to be hands on
Our programs are multi-sensory, meaning your students will learn maths using real objects, rather than just learning from a book and trying to conceptualise*. The manipulatives (hands-on tools) are our starting place; our main teaching tool and are adaptable to suit all ages, grade levels and learning styles. They have been proven by thousands of Australian students to be incredibly effective. *Our later advanced levels don't use manipulatives, but they do build on the understanding from the foundational levels.
Based on mastery, not speed
If your students are either struggling to keep up or zooming ahead of their curriculum, Math-U-See is the perfect option. Our programs are not based on keeping up, they're based on mastering a topic area and then moving on to the next. Students develop a deeper, more satisfying & concrete understanding of concepts which helps you, the teacher, keep your students engaged in class.
Based on ability level, not grade
Our free online placement tests allow you to fully understand which level is appropriate for your student regardless of their expected school grade. By teaching based on what they do and don't know, you can instead fill the gaps or accelerate them at the appropriate pace to achieve the best results.
Cumulative reviews built-in
The Math-U-See program has built in mechanisms to ensure that you know (and your student knows) where they're up to at any point. Each concept builds on each other (you can't learn multiplication if you don't know addition and subtraction first). Plus, the testing at the end of each lesson makes sure your student has fully understood the concept that has been taught before moving on.

We also offer training for those who want to extend their understanding of the Math-U-See approach to really solidify how you deliver the program as a teacher.

Math-U-See is aligned with Australian Curriculum outcomes
Learning occurs, according to research and evidence-based methodology with students mastering each concept before moving on to the next, sequentially. Math-U-See therefore aligns to ACARA guidelines in a modified sequence based on mastery of each maths topic (rather than on a grade level basis).

How our MultiSensory Maths Program Works
STEP 1
Prepare to teach
Teaching with Math-U-See is easy. Each concept is clearly outlined with explicit guidelines on how to deliver every lesson with your students. Each level comes with instruction manuals and lesson-by-lesson videos. The hands-on manipulatives reinforce each concept in an engaging, multi-sensory way. Extra examples and activities, teaching tips, testing and answers are all included
STEP 2
Present your lesson
The Math-U-See instruction manuals will give you everything you need to present each lesson. Because you'll have a clear understanding of what your student needs to learn (using our free online placement tests), you'll know exactly where to start and what they need to focus on to move forward confidently with maths. Because Math-U-See meets the student where they're at, you'll be able to deliver excellent results for your clients, every time.
STEP 3
Build strong foundations for your student
Practice each concept with your student using specific tools to build strong foundations in their understanding of maths.
We have a proven method (called â€˜build-write-sayâ€™) to help you establish a systematic, hands-on approach to effective learning. Build each problem with the manipulatives, write it down step-by-step, then ask your student to say how the solution works. Learning is reinforced as the student explains the concept back to you. The regular use of the manipulatives also improves understanding and retention of each topic - so you don't have to go over each lesson again and again!
STEP 4
Progress with your student
Your students will develop their mastery and, as a result, grow in confidence with maths as you help them tackle more concepts. They will have more confidence in you, and in themselves.
The Math-U-See program is designed to support individual learning at each student's own pace, and so tailoring your approach will help them really take the proper time to grasp each concept. Students develop maths mastery and confidence by fully understanding what's being taught to them, and progressing at the appropriate pace.

How does Math-U-See align with the Australian Curriculum?
Math-U-See uses a mastery based teaching approach vs the Australian Curriculum "spiral approach".

THE FOUNDATIONAL LEVELS
( Pre-school to Grade 8 and Intervention )
Our 7 foundational levels focus around multi-sensory maths using manipulatives (hands-on tools) and our 4-step methodology:
SEE IT
FEEL IT
WRITE IT
SAY IT
Students progress through each level sequentially (left to right above) to build on the foundational principles learnt in the previous levels. For some students, a particular level will be easy and they'll breeze through. For other students, that same level may take a little longer. That's what's so great about Math-U-See. The layout of the program caters to any student's learning speed.
Simply take your time on the levels you're struggling with, and breeze on through if you're mastering it quickly. Each level comes with lessons and materials to make sure 'mastery' of that level has been achieved before you move on to the next.
THE ADVANCED LEVELS
( Grade 8 to University Level )
As students progress into our advanced levels, the understanding developed in mastering the early Math-U-See levels form the backbone of knowledge as we move into more abstract concepts. Each level continues to sequentially build on previous mastery, all the way through to our final university-grade Calculus level.
