A complete Primary Maths Textbook Package written in English for Indonesia. Available for use in July 2010.

A Maths package that follows the Indonesian Curriculum

Maths Alive! is a rst for Indonesia. Written in English, it has been
designed according to the latest Standard Content of the Indonesian Curriculum. This saves teachers the e ort of having to use several textbooks for teaching Maths in English. In line with the requirements of the Indonesian Curriculum, the package has also been written to develop pupils higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills.

A pedagogically sound Maths package that suits the Indonesian context

This package is written by Dr Ng Swee Fong and Michelle Choo. Dr Ng is a well-known Singapore Maths educator, who has taught the subject in a bilingual context; and Michelle is an experienced Maths author, with professional knowledge in moulding the minds of young children. Together they have made use of pedogogies that worked in Singapore and applied them e ectively to the Indonesian classroom context. This was done with the help of an experienced team of Indonesian teachers headed by Itje Chodidjah. Together, they developed scenarios, examples and cultural settings pupils can identify with to present the concepts. This enables teachers to better engage their pupils and help them acquire Maths concepts easily.

The Teachers Guide shows teachers how to deliver important Maths concepts e ectively in class. It also suggests to teachers language learning activities they can incorporate in a lesson, and supports them in teaching the language skills involved.

Teachers will find the bilingual Teachers Guide and audio materials provided helpful in enabling them to teach English proficiently.

Problem-solving, analytical thinking and algebraic reasoning skills are developed in pupils through features like Number Detective and Looking Back.
