Time for New Mentals - Prep is the first in a series of seven books that addresses the Prep Year Level Descriptions and Elaborations of the new Australian Curriculum Mathematics Foundation to Year 10. This book reinforces the concepts and activities introduced in the strands found in its perfect partner Time for New Maths - Foundation.
When this book is used in parallel with Time for New Maths Australia - Foundation, a solid foundation in Number and Place Value, Patterns and Algebra, Using Units of Measurement along with interpreting and representing data will be achieved by the child. In addition the child will learn the language of mathematics so the processes and concepts become more meaningful as he/she moves from unit to unit.
Time for New Mentals - Foundation provides answers to all activities at the end of the book for the teacher or parent to help the child develop understanding and build confidence with mathematics.
While the book is a valuable extension, reinforcement and builder of mathematics skills in the classroom, it is also an ideal learning tool for use at home.Images shown accurately depict our books, some have been slightly altered for illustration purpose only.
