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

WRITE IT

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.

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.

Pre-Algebra

Order of Operations, Solving for the Unknown and more

Algebra 1

Graphing, Exponents, Unit Multipliers and more

Geometry

Using Geometry to Understand Shape and Solids

Algebra 2

Factoring Polynomials, Quadratic Formula and more

Pre-Calculus

Prepare for Calculus with Trigonometry and more

Calculus

Derivatives, Integrals, Calculus Applications, Differential Equations, & more

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

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.

Math-U-See is grounded in two key principles:

Mastery-based teaching

Maths is a sequential subject. Every concept must be clearly understood before moving onto the next. The Math-U-See approach asks students to teach a concept back to you—the maths teacher or tutor—to demonstrate that mastery has been achieved.

We follow a simple 4-Step Process for introducing, practicing, mastering and reviewing every concept. Our process gives maths teachers all the information and tools you’ll need to help a student progress onto the next lesson.

This innovative program brings simplicity to maths teaching, benefitting schools, homeschoolers and tutors across Australia.

Concept-based learning

While memorising basic facts and formulas is still an essential part of learning, we know that learning to apply concepts to real-life is what really makes them stick.

Math-U-See starts with (in our early levels) hands-on 'manipulatives' so kids get to actually see, touch and feel the numbers they are working with. We use this multi-sensory experience to solve fun, everyday life situations in maths.

As the Math-U-See levels progress into the more abstract, the early-level learning serves as a solid foundation for truly understanding new concepts... all the way up to our university-grade levels in Pre-calculus and Calculus.
