Most learners regard maths as one of the most challenging subjects. Even with the willingness to learn and the availability of primary teaching resources to assist with mastering maths concepts, most pupils still find it problematic to excel in this subject. In light of this, Prim-Ed Publishing developed The Maths Box to make teaching the subject fun and engaging for pupils.
As one of the leading maths resources in Ireland, The Maths Box makes learning maths easier and more enjoyable. The boxes cover all the mathematical sub-strands and strands for Senior Infants to 6th Class levels.
Despite its practical relevance in modern living, some pupils find learning maths too complex and abstract. Improving one's maths skills promotes healthy brain function. Solving maths problems also improves pupils' cognitive skills over time. Furthermore, mathematics helps pupils develop their problem-solving skills. This is beneficial in understanding and solving real-life problems outside the realm of the classroom.
Learning maths also benefits learners by:
The Maths Box is a set of seven boxes of cards. Each box corresponds to an individual class from Infants to Sixth. The boxes have been written to facilitate the teaching and learning of mathematical skills and concepts.
Specific skills covered in the series include numbers and algebra, measures, data, and shape. Using separate answer cards, pupils can work independently while maintaining a record for their own and the teacher's reference.
These boxes have been designed to alleviate the rigours of teaching and learning mathematical concepts. They are multi-levelled, unique resources that deliver procedures and activities to impact and improve mathematical skills, pupils' problem-solving abilities, reasoning, knowledge and strategies. Pupils develop new maths skills while reinforcing existing ones.
How much does a typical maths box cost?
Each box in The Maths Box series (boxes 1 to 6 and Early Years) costs €225. School Saver - The Maths Box, which includes all the boxes in the entire series, goes for €1,575.
What maths equipment should I prepare for use with the activity cards?
The comprehensive photocopiable Teachers' Guide in each box lists all the materials and equipment you will need for each card. In Ireland, the equipment you might need include:
