TOP Maths series is developed to cover comprehensively the learning outcomes of the latest Cambridge Primary Mathematics curriculum framework.

TOP Maths builds a strong foundation of the subject through the use of well-researched and sound pedagogical principles. Adopting the popular Concrete -> Pictorial -> Abstract approach, pupils are introduced to new concepts through concrete manipulatives and engaging pictorials before they are led to see their abstract symbolic representations. This allows pupils to have a deeper understanding of key mathematical concepts, thus motivating them to learn. Content is also clearly structured and spiralled across the levels to ensure a gradual build-up and review of skills as pupils progress up the grades. At the same time, emphasis is given on developing pupils’ problem-solving skills, critical thinking, as well as other 21st century skills.

TOP Maths also develops pupils’ confidence. A wide variety of practice questions are provided at frequent and appropriate junctures. This ensures that there is immediate reinforcement of concepts and sufficient practice for pupils.

TOP Maths Grade 1 comprises the following components:

  • Textbooks 1A and 1B
  • Workbooks 1A and 1B
  • Teacher’s Guides 1A and 1B — Contains detailed mapping to the Cambridge curriculum framework, wraparound teachers’ notes for Textbooks and answers for Workbooks, with additional information and tips on conducting and delivering effective mathematics lessons
