HOW IT WORKS
At Maths Australia, we base all numeracy instruction–from Pre-school to Year 12—on multi-sensory, student-paced learning.
We focus on achieving maths mastery at every stage before progressing to learning the next concept.
The Math-U-See program uses our innovative 'manipulatives' (specialised, hands-on maths learning tools), which create the foundations for mastering maths from the first 'Primer' level all the way through to our most advanced 'Calculus' level.
Using our specially developed 4-Step Method and cumulative reviews, we then help students refine and retain their knowledge in maths.
The end result? Maths becomes concrete, useful and relevant to their everyday lives. Students feel empowered and confident in their maths ability.
Math-U-See is entirely adaptable to every learning style and level, making maths accessible to anyone.
It’s straightforward to teach too, with clear lesson plans and lesson-by-lesson video demonstrations.
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

SAY IT
Students progress through each level sequentially (left to right below) to build on the foundational principles learnt in the previous levels. For some kids, a particular level will be easy and they'll breeze through. For other kids, 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 child'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.

What you get in each Foundational Level Complete Set:
The Complete Sets are perfect when starting the Math-U-See program, because you get everything you need to start right away.
The manipulatives in each Complete Set will differ slightly according to the topics that are taught in that level: for example, the Integer Block Kits teach addition and subtraction and basic foundational maths, whereas the Fraction Overlays are used to teach fractions and the Algebra Decimal Inserts and used to teach algebra, decimals and percents.

Instruction Manual
This Instruction manual includes step-by-step worked Solutions and will provide you with clear and easy to read instructions on how to teach each lesson to your student. This manual should be used in collaboration with the video lessons.
Student Kit
The student workbook and Test Booklet gives your student extra practice on what they've been taught from the Instruction Manual and video lessons - and should be used by the student in conjunction with the appropriate manipulatives.
The specific manipulatives needed are based
on your student's appropriate level:
These are the manipulatives we use throughout the Foundational Levels
Integer Block Kit
This 133-piece Integer Block Kit is our primary teaching tool for every lesson, Primer (Preschool) through to Algebra 1 (Advanced Year 10), and enable a student to bridge the gap from basic understanding through to mastery. Learn more
Fraction Overlays Kit
The Fraction Overlays show fractions of any number in in a hands-on, multisensory way. This is teachers' favourite tool - making it easy to understand for any student.
Algebra Decimal Inserts
These Algebra Decimal Inserts are used with the Integer Blocks to show students - in a hands-on, multisensory way - decimals, percentages and algebraic equations. A must-have for all advanced maths!

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.

What you get in each Advanced Level Complete Set:
The Complete Sets for the Advanced Levels of the Math-U-See program differ slightly from the previous levels. The Integer Blocks and Algebra Decimal Inserts are still used for the first few levels, and by the time the student reaches the higher levels, their understanding of maths is mastered and they move onto more abstract concepts.

How Each Lesson Works
Each lesson, from the Foundational Levels to the Advanced Levels, is laid out in the same format. This is the winning formula when teaching maths - and the entire process is based on CRA (Concrete-Representational-Abstract) methodologies.
This simple, laid out lesson layout easy to teach too, even if you don't have prior teaching experience. Many parents, teachers and tutors highly reccommend the program because of its simplistic approach and ease of use.
The program includes the following key aspects:
Step-by-step instructions are provided for the teacher for each lesson, so you know exactly what to teach and how to teach it
Lesson-by-lesson online videos explain each topic that is being taught - like your very own private tutor. See examples of these videos
Practicing the questions in the student workbooks reinforces what has been taught
The use of manipulatives in each lesson is research-proven to dramatically engage and enhance learning for each student
End of lesson tests make it easy to see what your student has understood - and which topics needs more work. Having a complete testing pathway is research-proven to work for your student in helping identify the gaps they have missed, as well as being a great tool for you to know what to continue to focus on.
Before beginning the Math-U-See program, the first step is to figure out where your student is at and determine their level of maths understanding. Then you know where to start, what topics to focus on, and what gaps need to be filled in. Your student's results are then automatically calculated and you're directed to the reccomended level to start on, based on your student's understanding.
