Primary teachers in Perth


What topics will be covered by these EdShop Maths Worksheets?

Each worksheet will cover a range of maths curriculum areas, but in no particular order. The nature of the primary school curriculum, and of the national testing programs, suggests that students at all levels need to be acquainted with the many and varied areas of the maths curriculum. These include such areas as straight calculation using the 4 processes, and vulgar and decimal fractions, measurement, time, currency and so on.

Three levels of Worded Maths Problems are covered: Middle-primary years, Upper-primary years, and Extension Worksheets for Gifted and Talented students.

EdShop worded problem worksheets are the ideal preparation for students, training them to read problems carefully, interpret them, and then translate them into mathematical algorithms.

1. Are answers to the worksheets supplied?

Yes. Each worksheet comes with answers supplied, but on a separate sheet, to allow teachers to control release of answers. 

2.How can teachers best use these EdShop worksheets?

These EdShop worded problem worksheets are designed to give primary teachers an excellent resource that is incredibly flexible in the classroom situation. Teachers can specify which worksheet should be tackled by each student within a class, which should result in all students reaching a level of success within their own skill range, along with a level of challenge. An excellent combination that will stand students in good stead in the area of mathematics.

3.How are students weak in mathematics catered for?

The mid-school worksheet provides ample opportunity for weaker students to achieve some level of success, without challenging them unnecessarily. Success is obviously vital to this group of students, and these worksheets will help motivate them to build a level of positive feeling towards mathematics, which is frequently absent from children who feel threatened by this curriculum area.

4.How are "average" students catered for?

There are ALWAYS an adequate number of worded questions on each EdShop worksheet to allow "average" students to enjoy success on the easier problems, but be challenged to an acceptable level by the mid-range and more difficult questions. The teacher is the person who will recommend the most appropriate worksheet for each student.

5. How are "gifted" children catered for?

Gifted children will find the whole gifted and talented worksheet worthwhile, and challenging. These questions are considerably more demanding.

6. What vocabulary is used?

The vocabulary is restricted to a relatively low level of sight-vocab, but the degree of difficulty of the worded questions varies depending on the mathematical skill level being addressed.

7.When does the week's worksheet change to the new worksheet?

On each Saturday, the previous worksheet is withdrawn and replaced by the new, freshly-written worksheet.

8.How do you receive the weekly worded problem worksheet?

The worksheet is emailed to a subscriber on the Saturday of each weekend, ready to be used during the following school week.

9.What is the annual subscription cost?

The annual subscription cost is $238 for whole-school use. TOTAL. (NOT per student!) For less than just $6 per school week, middle- and upper-school teachers and students can make as many copies, and use them with as many students within their subscribing school as they wish. Unbelievable value in terms of quality of resource, and financial outlay!

10.How do the skill levels help a teacher cope with individual differences of students?

By offering three (3) distinct academic levels of written problems, teachers can quite easily offer appropriate levels of worded maths problems for each student. From gifted to remedial students, these sheets offer an easy, yet effective, mathematical work-out for most students

11. What Maths topics are covered in these EdShop Worksheets? 

These EdShop maths worksheets are designed to cover key areas of the primary mathematics curriculum, specialising only in worded problems, which often present the greatest area of difficulty for primary students at all levels.

12.What Year levels are covered in these EdShop Worksheets?

The sheets are designed to cover primary school levels from Year 3 to Year 6, with a third set prepared to challenge gifted and talented students. They virtually ensure that all students will experience at least some degree of success as they tackle problems up to their own personal skill level, and, hopefully, be tempted to tackle a step beyond their present skill level.
