Collins International Maths Foundation

Collins International Maths Foundation and Foundation Plus provide inspirational, fun and age-appropriate learning for children in early years and kindergarten classes.

The materials have been developed in consultation with expert practitioners to be easy to use in the classroom and to support children following a range of early years curricula and who are preparing for their first year of primary education in an international school, including schools following the Cambridge Assessment International Education primary framework.

The course introduces young children to maths concepts in an age-appropriate way through topic-based discovery and activity-based learning, with plenty of opportunities to explore maths through games and hands-on exploration. Careful progression ensures children develop the skills they need to be ready for maths in their first year of primary and beyond.

Each level comprises Activity Books A, B and C – one for each term – supported by a carefully selected collection of colourful stimulus materials in the Reading Anthology and Teacher’s Guide. Schools can opt to use the course over one or two school years.

The Teacher’s Guides provide accessible support for teachers and teaching assistants, including detailed guidance, ideas for teaching maths in the early years classroom, support for assessment, advice on resources, songs and games, and additional photocopiable activity sheets.

Collins International Maths Foundation and Foundation Plus can be used on their own, or alongside Collins International English Foundation and Foundation Plus and Collins International Science Foundation and Foundation Plus to provide a comprehensive early-years programme.
