Cracking Maths focuses on the skills of the curriculum, rather than just the content, promoting real understanding, especially in areas such as problem-solving. All levels of the series are supported by engaging and stimulating digital resources, an invaluable teacher’s handbook and fantastic online materials.
This Cracking Maths Enrichment Book provides extra practice, problem-solving tasks and open ended investigations to stretch, deepen and enrich the mathematical understanding of pupils and to support the 5th Class Pupil’s Book.
Digital resources for Cracking Maths are available for teachers on gillexplore.ie, our easy-to-use digital resources website. Opening up a wealth of opportunities to awaken children’s love of maths, they include animations and videos, an Interactive Toolkit offering 16 interactive tools including clocks and timers, graph and chart builders, geometry instruments and much more, and assessment and planning templates. A teacher’s eBook version of the pupil’s book is also available.
