Resources for Senior Phase Mathematics 

Based on studies conducted by the Department of Basic Education, Cambridge University Press identified senior phase mathematics as an area where support was needed.

In response to this, we have developed an array of print and digital resources for senior phase mathematics, including: bilingual mathematics dictionaries, classroom and workshop activities that develop maths teaching skills, mental maths workbooks, card games to reinforce key maths skills, mathematical bridging content between primary and secondary school, maths study guides for grades 8-9 which include substantial revision elements, as well as a brand-new online mathematics resource, Cambridge HOTmaths CAPS Edition.

Cambridge HOTmaths CAPS Edition

Developed as an online mathematics learning resource, Cambridge HOTmaths CAPS Edition allows teachers and learners to access high quality content. Cambridge HOTmaths games are based on sound mathematical learning to provide good maths practice while engaging students using online mathematics learning resources. Students can use the games individually or they can be projected onto a whiteboard for a whole class task. The lesson notes and step-by-step walkthroughs of problems are ideal for students studying individually. Walkthrough problems take students through a problem with feedback at each step and are a great supplement to the lesson notes. The range of assessment tasks that Cambridge HOTmaths provides work best as an online mathematics learning resource, although teachers have the option to print out questions to create an instant test. The online mathematics learning resource allows work to be completed and marked online, giving teachers instant access to reports on how their class and each individual student is doing.

Keys to Learning Mathematics Top Score Games (Grade 7)

Keys to Learning games were developed by a group of highly experienced teachers with a special interest in how children learn, and particularly in how to assist the weaker learners who tend to get lost in a big learner group while challenging and stimulating the stronger learners. Card games are used to consolidate and reinforce these basic skills – in a pleasant and relaxed way that does not stress learners. The games encourage flexible thinking and better problem-solving skills. Read more
