Maths Mate

Maths Mate Homework Program

The Maths Mate Homework program is based on the principle that regular, structured practice helps the development of short and long-term memory. As a result students’ mathematical knowledge, skills and problem solving abilities are consolidated and extended through systematic, weekly revision.

After correcting their own worksheets each week and marking the boxes at the base, students can easily transfer their results to the corresponding boxes on their record keeping sheets. Each student has two recording keeping sheets, one is in their folder at school and one is the front of their green homework folder so students can share their weekly results with parents. In this way areas of strength and weakness are highlighted.

Maths Mate Skill Builder Sheets

Maths Mate Skill Builder Sheets have been designed to provide instant help for students so they can better understand and eventually master skills that are causing difficulty. If students are having difficulty with a concept or if they get a get an answer to a question wrong in two consecutive weeks they are required to complete the appropriate Maths Mate Skill Builder Sheet.

Please ask Mrs Williames for the appropriate Skill Builder Sheet for you.
