**Using Maths Aotearoa with the refreshed curriculum**

### Written by Charlotte Wilkinson

*A new edition published by Edify*

A series of textbooks and teacher guides that provides teachers with consistency and continuity in delivering a comprehensive mathematics programme from level 1 to level 4. (Phases 1 - 3). The books are designed in units of work as set out in the teacher guides that build up through and across each level or phase. Maths Aotearoa makes the links to the learning progressions as well as to the curriculum document. This allows for planning to meet the learning needs of each student in each unit.

The series encourages a range of pedagogical practices as recommended in the common practice model with an emphasis on problem solving as well as students developing sound mathematical knowledge

The Primary Mathematics Assessment Tool also published by Edify enables teachers to find the most likely starting unit for each of their students. This tool is specifically designed to provide information for teaching and learning purposes.

Wilkie Way assessment screens are available from the online store. These assessments find out what your students already know and provide information for next learning steps. The assessment teacher guide provides the links back to Maths Aotearoa for appropriate learning experiences. Repeating the assessment at the end of the year gives students a very clear understanding of the knowledge and skills they have gained during a school year.

## Primary Mathematics Assessment Tool

This assessment tool is to assess a studentâ€™s ability to use their mathematics to solve problems and uses the curriculum levels and the learning progressions as the measure of progress.

Sections 1 and 2 are administered as an interview.

Sections 3 and 4 are administered with a group under guidance.

Sections 5 and 6 are administered by the students work on the problems individually followed by teacher conferencing.
