When there’s an area of mathematics that’s difficult to understand, it’s wonderful to have a helping hand to make things easier. The Maths Gaps series offers just that kind of help! The eight Maths Gaps books for Foundation Phase, and the five Maths Gaps for Intermediate Phase, will help learners to overcome problem areas so that these don’t continue into later years.

Each Foundation Phase Maths Gaps book covers Grades 1, 2 and 3, and each Intermediate Phase Maths Gaps book covers Grades 4, 5 and 6. They work through all the basics that learners will need. Each book:

  • addresses specific gaps in focused sections
  • briefly describes to the teacher, tutor or parent how to approach the learning under each heading, and what to focus on
  • provides an example of how to do a particular section of work
  • provides lots of practice activities per section
  • offers assessments to use at the end of each grade, and provides a final end-of-phase assessment to make sure that learners have grasped the previously tricky learning area and addressed the Maths Gap!

The series was written and reviewed by Foundation Phase and Intermediate Phase experts and is compliant with the CAPS curriculum. The Maths Gaps series is a useful practice and intervention tool that can be used in the classroom and at home.

Mathematics can improve, with these fun, easy-to-use books.
