Dragon Maths Workbooks

For the Primary School - Year 3-6

Helping to develop essential numeracy skills 

Books 1 to 4 of Sigma’s best-selling ‘Dragon Maths’ write on workbook series cover the full range of maths and numeracy skills needed by New Zealand primary school students up to Year 6.  We start our workbook series at Year 3 when students have developed the independent literacy skills to use these resources effectively. Sigma’s Dragon Maths workbooks contain 120 pages of homework or classroom maths activities, filled with drawings, diagrams and photos. The series is illustrated with fun dragon cartoons – primary students will love them! See below to purchase the workbooks.

 

For Teachers

The Dragon Maths series provides a sequential set of write-on workbooks for students from Year 3 to Year 6. Year 7 and 8 titles are available for extension work. Each workbook covers the following curriculum strands : Number and Algebra, Geometry and Measurement, and Statistics. The Number Framework is also taken as a writing guide. Most pages contain instruction boxes and worked examples to help students with independent study (e.g. homework, group work in class).

Dragon Maths workbooks will give you the confidence that you are teaching maths material at the correct curriculum level to match your year group. This best-selling series is an effective way to improve Maths results school-wide.

Sample Books are available for schools.

For Parents

Your primary school child will benefit greatly from doing the maths activities in our Dragon Maths series for their home maths practice. These books work even better than maths worksheets since they follow the NZ maths curriculum that is being taught to your child in class and provide a clear and structured programme. You can also use the books as a catch-up for any lessons missed, or as extension if your child is bright because the workbooks are written as a series and can be used in sequence.

Each write-on workbook features simple instruction boxes with an actual example of the concept being taught. These instructions demonstrate the rules and techniques of today’s mathematics so you can understand your child’s work and become an effective home-teacher. The book also contains a removable  full set of answers for marking.
