New  MathsAhead is a series of 10 books (Primer A, B and Books 1 – 8) for pre-primary to middle school level. The books are in line with the National Curriculum Framework and follow the guidelines laid down by the NCERT.
The Primers

Primers A and B focus on laying the ground for sound development of mathematical concepts. They are gently graded, starting from pre-number concepts that ensure an understanding of the language of Maths appropriate for the level. They then progress to an understanding of numbers, the interaction between numbers, and shapes and patterns.

Maths Lab Activities and Fun Activities ensure sound concept formation and an element of fun.

Features of Books 1 – 5

  • Open and colourful layout.
  • Emphasis on application orientation, with focus on applications of maths in our daily life, for example in measurements, money, area and volume.
  • Two worksheets (instead of 1) at the end of each chapter.

Mathletics A for concepts and calculation skills – to enhance understanding and the skill to calculate quickly. It includes concept and calculation-based exercises, and mental maths.

Mathletics B for higher skills – MCQs, higher order thinking, cross-curricular applications, life skills and values. It includes fun activities, projects and our heritage (such as yoga and Vedic maths).

  • The Common Mistakes feature present throughout the books helps students understand and overcome mistakes.
  • Solved examples of long division in Books 3-5 worked out on a grid (similar to Maths exercise books) for ease of understanding.
  • Each book  has 4 Assessment Papers (instead of 2) for regular assessment and 2 Periodic Tests for exam practice 
  • New topics and subtopics that improve concept development and development of 21st century skills include

Book 1: addition and subtraction by counting forwards/backwards.
Book 2: shapes that roll and slide, number patterns
Book 3: simple division of money, tiling of shapes
Book 4: method for estimating the quotient in long division, new chapter on money, reflection symmetry, tessellations, area of irregular shapes
Book 5:  reflection symmetry, turning shapes, different views of an object, maths in maps, line graphs

  • The new Students’ App in Books 3-8 gives more practice to students.
