Detailed theory for every topic

Each lesson contains a set of high-quality theory that includes everything you expect and more. Theory starts with highlighting where the concepts covered are used in the real world and the worked examples explore mathematical concepts from multiple perspectives and integrate visual models where appropriate to build students’ conceptual understanding of topics.

Year 7 - Fractions
Year 8 - Volume
Year 9 - Measures of centre and spread
See exampleSee exampleSee example

Questions to build students’ conceptual knowledge

Build students’ foundation of knowledge with three different types of questions. Students first engage with visual models with Understanding Worksheet questions, then progress into building familiarity with the abstract maths through the Fluency questions. Students are scaffolded away from developing misconceptions by identifying potential errors with Spot the mistake questions.

Year 8 - Volume
Year 9 - Measures of centre and spread

Fully-worked solutions to help students learn

The textbook and online fully-worked solutions go beyond single number answers. The solutions deconstruct questions and provide students with step-by-step workings so that they are able to use this to reflect, understand any errors and make progress, both in and out of the classroom, or when you’re busy helping other students.

Head Teacher - Mathematics, NSW

Using Edrolo has definitely had an impact in my classroom. The student engagement in learning is much higher and they love using the interactive materials. The activities are designed to be workable for all levels and the differentiation means that students can work at their own pace. Struggling students are showing improvement since we started using this program. They seem to be grasping concepts faster. The resources are well-structured and easy to use, which means I spend less time preparing my lessons.
