DK is to partner with resources provider Maths—No Problem! to create a range of workbooks for children.
Aimed at ages four to 11, the Master Maths at Home series is designed to support school work and home learning. The programme has been recommended by the Department for Education and is aligned with the UK National Curriculum. The books feature illustrations and characters, and are accompanied by videos that give parents background instructions and useful teaching tips.
The workbooks will be launched in January 2022 in the UK and in the second half of 2022 in the US, with six workbooks at different levels covering all the essential skills including addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, algebra, fractions, decimals and lots more.
Mark Searle, DK’s publishing director, licensing, said: “Home schooling has shown us that maths is taught in such a different way now, and it can often be bewildering to parents and caregivers. This exciting new range of workbooks demystifies maths mastery, with a friendly, accessible and vibrant approach from the market-leading maths mastery programme. It's a joy to be bringing these unique books to market to help children develop their skills and grow confidence in such an important subject.”
Andy Psarianos, c.e.o. of Maths—No Problem!, added: “Maths—No Problem! has been at the forefront of mathematics teaching ever since we introduced our mastery programme to UK schools seven years ago. We’re delighted to partner with DK to produce workbooks for the home-learning market and we’re confident they will help parents succeed in guiding their children to a deep, secure and long-lasting understanding of maths concepts. The landscape for teaching mathematics has changed dramatically in recent years. We now have a range of proven tools that can help children understand and even love maths. Our new partnership will open the door to successful maths learning for millions of children and their families. And with expertly curated workbooks and support videos, I believe this revolutionary series will make a significant contribution to global maths education.”
