Student Workbooks
The Student Space workbooks contain the following elements for each mathematical concept:

Introduction page (notes for students that match teaching PowerPoint)

Practice pages (3 levels – support, onlevel and extension)

Codebreaker (differentiated puzzles and codes)
Introduction Pages (Student Notes)
Each concept has two Introduction pages. The Intro pages are aimed at engaging student thinking and creating conceptual understanding. The pages have the following sections:

Explore: Openended questions that allow students to explore concepts

Notice: Questions that draw attention to patterns

Understand: Explanations of concepts represented visually and mathematically; not procedural based but aimed towards creating conceptual understanding

Worked Examples: Completed questions, with clear steps of the procedure, for students to have as notes

Think About It: Questions for students to answer in groups that extend student thinking, bring light to contradictions (cognitive dissonance) or emphasize key points

Our Turn: Leveled problems (support, onlevel and extension) for the teacher to work with the class; the teacher can choose a few or all depending on the nature of the students within the class

Your Turn: Support and onlevel problems for students to practice individually

Extension: Extension problems for students to practice individually

Puzzle: A logic puzzle that either stretches understanding of the current topic or strengthens logic, reasoning and number sense

Working Space: Grid paper for working out problems
Teaching Presentation
We offer teaching PowerPoints that match the student notes pages (Introductions) in the student workbooks.
The goal of the PowerPoints is to bring quality, consistency and ease to Mathematics teaching.
Any teacher or reliever should be able to walk into the classroom and teach a robust Maths lesson using the PowerPoint!
Differentiated Workbook Pages
Each concept has three leveled pages with varying difficulty and quantity of problems.

Support Level: Has problems that allow access to all students by hitting the stage just below the year level and build up to the onlevel problems; plenty of working space provided

OnLevel: Has problems that are at the right stage for the year level and progress towards extension thinking

Extension Level: Has problems that extend understanding of the concept by using backwards thinking and/or a variety of numbers (larger numbers, decimal numbers, fractions, etc.)
Codebreakers
Codebreakers are FUN coded puzzles. Students must complete differentiated problems, beginning at support level problems then progressing to onlevel and extension problems. The answers to the problems will match a letter in a code, eventually spelling the answer to a joke.
This is a FUN way to encourage more practice and revision. Students love these!
Answers
Now for the best part  we have answers too!
There is a separate answer book to use in the classroom. Answers are also posted to our website for educators with a subscription.
Answers to the Introduction pages (student notes) are on the teaching presentations, also available to educators with a subscription.
Bonus Features!
Our workbooks also include:

A differentiated basic facts program

Māori workbook pages that educate about Te Reo (e.g. how to count, etc.)

Tests that match the concepts in each unit

Can be used as practice tests or posttests
