**What Makes Math-U-See Unique?**

**Our Difference:**

Concrete - Graphic Representation - Abstract

**At Maths Australia, we base all numeracy instruction–from Pre-school to Year 12—on multi-sensory, student-paced learning. **

**Here’s why we’re different:**

- We make maths Concrete: maths becomes something you can see with our multi-sensory manipulatives.
- This hands-on learning creates strong foundations for understanding. Graphic Representation then leads the student to Abstract application.
- Our innovative approach is framed within an engaging and effective sequential maths program: Math-U-See.

Math-U-See makes maths achievable and enjoyable for every student, whatever their learning style.

It’s simple-to-follow and fun to teach. Anyone can use Math-U-See—teachers, parents, homeschoolers or tutors—to enable any student, at any age and ability to achieve their maths mastery.

Our difference comes from our passion – to include and motivate every learner to succeed in their journey to maths mastery.

**Our Methodology: How We Do It So Well**

**We Teach by Concept**

At Maths Australia, we teach more than simply how to solve a math problem: we teach why the problem gets solved that way.

While memorising basic facts and formulas is still an essential part of the program, we know that actual understanding comes from learning concepts and discovering how to apply them to real-life.

We teach using hands-on manipulatives and use this multi-sensory knowledge to solve fun everyday life situations or word problems.

Math-U-See focuses on first making maths something you can see, touch and feel to help make concepts more concrete. This creates the foundations for true understanding.

**We Teach to Mastery**

Students develop mastery at every stage of their journey with Math-U-See.

Each concept must be clearly understood before moving onto the next. This sequential approach asks students to teach a concept back to you—the maths teacher or tutor—to demonstrate that mastery has been achieved.

Math-U-See follows 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. "We use manipulatives—coloured blocks, fraction overlays, algebra/ decimal inserts—from the Primer through to Algebra 1 levels of Math-U-See. We cover mastery of maths from Preschool through High School."

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

## Our Vision:

Maths Mastery for Every Student

At Maths Australia, we believe that each and every student can learn maths in a way that perfectly suits their personal learning style!

As experienced educators, we believe it is our responsibility to turn maths into something you can see. This makes it simple to teach, concrete to understand and enjoyable to learn.

Math-U-See presents maths with an evidence-based methodology that enables every student to have the opportunity and learn the maths tools to be empowered.

From school to home and on through the rest of their lives, we enable every child and student to achieve maths mastery.

## Our Program is Complete:

K-12, Skill-based & Multi-sensory

We use manipulatives—coloured blocks, fraction overlays, algebra/ decimal inserts—from the Primer through to Algebra 1 levels of Math-U-See.

Each concept is built from these hands-on tools. With them, you’ll cover everything from place value to polynomials.

We recognise that each student is unique and so is the way they learn maths. The more senses we can incorporate into every maths lesson—sight, hearing & touch—the more differences we can successfully address.

Being multi-sensory also supports retention and memory, decreasing the need for a student to re-learn maths concepts over and over.

## Based on In-Depth

Research Recommendations

Math-U-See includes all the recommendations from the last 20 years’ of independent researchers on best practice for maths instruction.

Our program is designed to help students learn maths mastery whatever their age, ability and current level of maths knowledge.
