More Maths Links

This page has been inspired by the recent enthusiasm on the MuddlePuddle List for Miquon and Singapore maths, particularly using Cuisinaire Rods. The first few links will hopefully help you find what we did, in terms of equipment and information. Then there is some Montessori maths information and plenty of Worksheet, online games and general information at the bottom. For more of the same, follow the Resource and Activity links above the title.

Curricula and Materials.

Sonlight A great site where you can buy miquon, singapore and saxon maths curricula, but it has far more on offer too – apart form other books and teaching methods, it has great descriptions and sample sheets of work books. Also has a message board for getting help from other parents.

School Surplus Somewhere to buy all sorts of home ed supplies but a particularly good source of maths materials from NES and Hope without paying full price!

QEDGriffin Lots of books to buy and good descriptions but via email you can buy the full Miquon curriculum.

SingaporeMath Home of this curriculum.

Cuisenaire

Most famous for their maths rods, (similar in style to some Montessori products), there is lots to look at and absorb here. Its a little tough to navigate but worth perservering!

Montessori Maths.

Montessori being my main passion, and fitting in very well with Miquon, I have included links to the best site i know for describing how to break down the skills required for getting started. I hope to add a page, with a little help from my friends, on Montessori maths, of my own, when i get the time and knowledge.

Shu-Chen Jenny – Maths activities These lead on from the Sensorial Activities so its worth having a good look at both to get an idea of the progression. i think this is one of the best Montessori sites available. For more, follow the Montessori link on the top bar of this page.

Also – a brief guide – to be expanded – on this site at Montessori Maths

Resources on the Web.

MathsStars Worksheets for grades 1-8.

MathLeague Although it’s aimed at the US grade4-8 age range, this is useful for the help and explanation sections – good for mum and dad as the “whyyyyyyyy.???” questions start coming!

M&M lesson plan This really made me giggle – its aimed at a higher age range but would scale down well – and its a good reason for eating chocolate!

TeachingIdeas Lots of games for a variety of ages.

Maths Links Games aimed at 8-11 year olds but might well work for a younger child too.

CoolMath I need to look at this more – but it seems fun!

Under5′s Not specifically maths but excellent worksheets available – all fun – which can be useful for pen control, number recognition and counting – all handy to build on before starting on more formal work.

BBC Numeracy games.

bda-dyslexia – maths really worth looking at for a preschool parent – the concepts and approach make good sense.

4to40 learn to add problems online – i have a feeling there is a lot more to this site too.

The Sunshine Room fun site with lots to explore.

Shu-Chen Jenny – Maths activities These lead on from the Sensorial Activities so its worth having a good look at both to get an idea of the progression. i think this is one of the best Montessori sites available. For more, follow the Montessori link on the top bar of this page.
