FAQs

  • 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.

    Four levels of Worded Maths Problems are covered: Lower- Primary years, Middle-Primary years, Upper-Primary years, and Extension Worksheets.

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

  • 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.

    How can teachers best use these Matharoo worksheets?

    These Matharoo 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.

    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.

    How are "average" students catered for?

    There are ALWAYS an adequate number of worded questions on each Matharoo 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    What is the annual subscription cost?

    The annual subscription cost varies depending on whether you are ordering for your school, for yourself as a teacher in a classroom, or as a parent for your child.

    Unbelievable value in terms of quality of resource, and financial outlay!

    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

    What Maths topics are covered in these Matharoo Worksheets?

    These Matharoo 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.

    What Year levels are covered in these Matharoo 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.

    • The students really look forward to and enjoy their weekly problem solving adventures. Not only do they enjoy the challenges and the activities, it has really made a difference towards their degree of engagement and practical understanding of what real world maths involves. Many thanks!

    • Matharoo worksheets are a huge part of our resources and strategies towards making a difference in this area. Each teacher uses the worksheets differently. I personally have used your sheets EVERY Monday. I explicitly teach each question.

    • Thank you for this year’s amazing work. My teachers and students have thoroughly enjoyed them… and I have enjoyed working on building the ‘Understand Operations’ part of our numeracy programmes.
