To Achieve Success!
Educators know that poor numeracy skills can hold back pupils’ progress and can lower their self-esteem. The love of learning maths comes from being able to solve mathematical problems with confidence.
The Alphareach maths workbooks connect different strands of mathematical concepts to provide a holistic approach.
To develop a firm foundation and gain a good grasp of the core concepts in maths, varied and frequent practice is required.
Incorporating the National Curriculum
The workbooks closely follow the national curriculum framework and guidance, offering comprehensive coverage of the topics by linking different strands within mathematics.
The Talk About! is a special interactive feature added in the workbooks for the pupils to articulate what they already know of the concept, procedure or the key term. It enables the teacher/parent to assess the pupils’ understanding of the topic and respond accordingly in further developing the pupils’ knowledge.
It helps the pupils reinforce learnt techniques, clear any misconceptions and deepen their understanding of the topic.
Alphareach Maths workbooks
The mathematical tasks in the workbooks are designed based on the variation theory. The use of conceptual and procedural variation enables learners to build a firm foundation and develop a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts, improving pupils learning outcomes.
Inspiring Pupils to Think Mathematically
The workbooks employ various pedagogic strategies to engage the pupils in using their natural powers of imagination and inspires them to think mathematically.
Maths is a sequential subject to learn. Pupils make progress by building upon their previous knowledge. The topics-based structured series of workbooks from Alphareach, with varied and frequent practice of the tasks in increasing complexity makes it easy for the pupil to internalise and master the skill set necessary to confidently solve problems within the given topic.
The workbooks frequently emphasise key words, facts, formulas, phrases and definitions to help pupils develop the mathematical vocabulary and strengthen and improve their memory.
