Preparing the lesson

....is simple ! Just watch and follow the instructions on the lesson-by-lesson DVD and in the manual. Be assured : our approach is research & evidence-based, thorough, comprehensive, and simple to follow from preschool - Yr 12.

Presenting to your student

....is easy ! You teach with confidence now that you've understood the lesson content from the DVD and Instruction manual. Using our fully integrated hands-on manipulatives and proven build-write-say teaching system, your student understands - and enjoys - maths.

Practicing for Mastery

....is just as it sounds ! Once a concept becomes clear through our revolutionary multi-sensory and sequential learning approach , your student practices what they've learned. Student workbooks provide simple computations and life application questions to confirm mastery.

Progress after mastery

is where you get to witness your student’s enjoyment of maths as it grows and develops. Maths Australia's unique multi-sensory and sequential learning system ensures that your student develops confidence in both understanding and application before they progress to new material.

The exclusive Maths Australia Online Placement Tests identify a student’s current level of maths mastery and ensures that they are placed at the most accurate entry level in the Math-U-See program. The Placement Tests also help you to identify any conceptual holes in their understanding so that action can be taken to fill the gaps, assist in later assessment and monitor their progress and mastery.

For accurate placement:

Watch the short video “Administering the Placement Test”.

If the student can recognise, read, and write the numbers 0-10, begin with the Alpha Placement Test. Download and print the test pdf situated on the right hand side of this page.

Progress through every Placement Test until the student begins to struggle or shows signs of not understanding the questions.

The Placement Test where the student starts to struggle and gains less than 80-90% correct answers is the level to commence Math-U-See e.g. commence on Gamma Level if they do not receive 90% on Gamma Test.

Please note: If the student is finger or unit counting, they will need to commence at Alpha Level regardless of their age. If you have any questions at all in regards to administering or interpreting these placement tests, please contact us.
