Do you need a system to teach beginners simple subtraction?
Are you frustrated at the huge number of rote-learning based worksheets online?
We feel the same way! So we designed a new set of eBooks to address the needs of students to learn number facts and to develop mathematical thinking, in a way that developed their understanding of the numbers and how they relate to one another.
Unlike Any Other Worksheets
Our system focuses on supporting students to:
become familiar with numbers and their characteristics
recognize patterns in sets of number facts
learn to use efficient strategies to derive number facts not yet learned
gradually increase their speed of recall
construct valid, efficient mental pictures of numbers and operations
Here is a typical sample page from our 'Developing Fluency' series of eBooks, showing the features that set our eBooks apart from all the rest:

Here are what other users of these eBooks have told us:
'The children are really excited to see that their accuracy is becoming much better, and that their time is also dropping.
It’s great for [students in the lower maths group] to be able to see that we can really improve their basic number facts. And as we go through the booklet the number facts increase in difficulty, but they’re not scared to try it, because we’re doing it little bit by little bit.'
Lauren O'Brien, teacher
'[The children] are happy to get the work done, and they are very excited about beating their personal time.
Lots of the children tell me when they’ve beaten their personal times, and they love calling out ‘Done!’.
It’s really exciting, it’s just a positive way of teaching maths, and they don’t realise that they are actually having fun when they’re doing their number facts.'
Liz White, teacher
'I purchased your program at Brisbane Quedrex last year and it is fabulous! My children just love working through the sheets and their skills are growing every day.'
- Leanne Barron, teacher
'I have just ordered the “Ten minutes a Day Level 2” worksheet bundle.
We will be continuing this program with our daughter as we can really notice the improvement in her math.
Last year she was failing miserably so we repeated her in grade three and have been doing your worksheets with her at home everyday. She bought home her report card today and was very proud of her self for getting a B in maths.'
