Cosmic Maths is a series aimed at Key Stage 2 children that has been created by teachers to promote and encourage core mathematical knowledge and skills.It
covers Key Objectives set out in the new National Curriculum and focuses on providing practice in Number, Fractions and Statistics. Each lesson plan helps
teachers to define key vocabulary and mathematical terms and introduces a guided activity that supports learners as they explore numbers through a range of
exercises; this is then followed up with an independent activity differentiated at three levels to practice what learnt. A wide range of practical problem
solving activities is covered, many of which are cross-curricular, in order to give learners a wider view of how maths, especially number, can be used and
applied in the 'real' world. Each book includes a skills report for each activity and assessment tests to monitor the learning and progress taking place.
Answers to each activity are also given in full.
