"Maths Trackers" gives children struggling with basic maths concepts the motivation to want to learn. The high-interest, age-appropriate contexts and themes inspire children for whom maths lacks relevance and ensure progression for KS2 children working at National Curriculum levels 1 and 2. Building on the success of the "Trackers" fiction and non-fiction strands for struggling readers, "Maths Trackers" will put low attainers back on track with maths. The five high-quality pupil books in each 'Track' (two for Number, two for Calculations and one for Shape, Space and Measures) are supported by Guided Teaching Notes booklets, which include notes for teachers and teaching assistants on how to use the photographs and illustrations for maths activities, questions to ask, ideas for mental maths practice, cross-curricular opportunities, etc. Problem-solving activities and life skills, such as money, measures and data handling, are embedded throughout the series. The teacher's guides include detailed information on how to use the series, photocopiable practice sheets and easy-to-use assessment profiles.
