Building Confident Learners Who Love Maths - The Impact Of The Maths — No Problem! Programme

Beautifully Designed

Teaching Maths for Mastery


From the 2500 hand-drawn illustrations to the learner-friendly typeface, every element has been meticulously designed to engage the learner. The colourful textbooks feature illustrated children who develop their problem-solving skills as they progress from years 1 to 6. The books use familiar situations and examples which present maths in a relevant context.

Researched Structure

Starting each year with whole numbers, the books provide a spiral curriculum which is broken down into topics and individual lessons. Each lesson opens with the teacher posing a new problem for the class to solve using the Concrete Pictorial Abstract (CPA) approach.

Pupil Books

Textbooks are the focus of group work, providing guided examples, activities and games for the pupils to explore together. The questions in the textbook allow the teacher to assess learning and pupils’ readiness to move on. The textbooks provide teachers with more time to plan how to teach rather than what to teach.

Pupils use their workbooks to practice methods and apply concepts independently. The well-structured exercises support the lesson objective in the textbook and save teachers researching and copying worksheets.

The final element is the maths journal, a simple exercise book provided by the school, which empowers pupils to take charge of their own learning and show their understanding of the concepts they’ve learnt.

Teacher Guides and Online Training

Exclusively for schools who order a discounted book bundle, an annual subscription to our Teacher Portal provides step-by-step teacher guides on how to conduct each lesson and a comprehensive library of Singapore Maths training videos.

Developed By Experts In Singapore

Our Primary Maths Series is adapted from the New Syllabus Primary Mathematics Series published by Shing Lee and approved by the Ministry of Education in Singapore. The series consultant in Singapore is Dr Yeap Ban Har who is a world-recognised expert in maths teaching.
