What teachers want . . . fun, up-to-date maths questions

Teachers everywhere are faced with a conundrum.

They’re expected to teach maths in our ever-changing world, using materials that were published on Noah’s Ark (well, you know what I mean, don’t you!)

Never has our world been changing at such a rate.

Yet here teachers are, in the classroom, being expected to use teaching materials that are in many cases antiquated.

But — AHH! — at last! An up-to-date maths product that’s FUN TO USE!

Here’s what teachers want, and what teachers need.

Up-to-date worded maths problems that are Aussie, fun to use, and teach students how to interpret the printed word into a maths operation and solve it, all the time having an enjoyable time doing so.

Not possible, you say? Well, let me correct you!

No, Sir! It’s NOT the Teacher’s Fault!

Who to blame?

Declining standards in primary school achievement levels Maths, in English, in Spelling, in Grammar, in Punctuation, in . . .  well, you name it!

The research is in.

And, it seems, Australian students are struggling to achieve what students in other countries are achieving.

Why?

Well, maybe . . . just MAYBE . . . the “Educational Authorities” are asking far too much of teachers, while simultaneously ignoring the need of teachers for structured, sensible, PRACTICAL curricula that can actually BE implemented in classrooms around this wonderful nation.

Some of us are providing worthwhile materials that HELP students to develop the skills needed in these areas.

Others just TALK about it. And talk is cheap.

We need curriculum support materials that genuinely help teachers to help their students, without demanding time-consuming preparation.

We need Educational Leadership to actually DELIVER THE GOODS. Not theorise about it, leaving teachers to “close the gaps.”

Our Worksheets are a great example of stuff that actually WORKS in the classroom.

To the benefit of all — students, teachers and schools. Thousands are now using them. To great effect.

Give them a go!
