Extension Exercises for CAMS & STAMS
(Levels AH)
Strengthen problemsolving and key math skills with the Extensions in Mathematics series, where students build computational fluency and conceptual understanding through:
 Writing to explain solutions
 Problem solving practice
 Graphic organizers
 Numbers in realworld contexts
 Assessment with embedded test prep
 Challenge problems and class projects
With stepbystep instruction and thorough practice to support students, they will develop into strategic, thoughtful and confident thinkers. In Extensions in Mathematics students are guided in applying strategies used by successful thinkers and then fill in graphic organisers as they learn how each strategy connects to ideas and information in numeracy.
Lessons focus on one skill at a time, using one or more graphic organizers such as:


The series covers the following 12 mathematics strategies:

Building Number Sense

Using Estimation

Applying Addition

Applying Subtraction

Applying Multiplication

Applying Division

Converting Time and Money

Working with Measurements

Using Algebra

Using Geometry

Determining Probability and Averages

Interpreting Graphs and Charts
Level A consists of a student workbook, covering eight strategies, and one teacher guide.
Levels BH cover the full 12 strategies and also have a student book and teacher guide for each level.

Raise understanding and achievement in maths!
FOCUS on Mathematics is a mathsstrategy practice series that aids all students, including struggling students, to achieve mathematical success. Mastery of core maths strategies is a difficult task to fulfil because students must learn to identify and apply abstract maths concepts and strategies. The FOCUS on Mathematics series makes maths mastery attainable by providing semiconcrete tools for students to use in identifying more complex maths strategies. With repeated practice and exposure, students become confident in their ability to use strategies to solve maths problems. Based on wellresearched teaching and learning strategies, using this series will mean that teachers are able to engage their students with an educationally sound mathematicspractice program.
FOCUS on Mathematics is an eight level series (AH) that focuses on the following 6 core mathematics strategies:
• Building Number Sense
• Using Geometry
• Using Estimation
• Determining Probability and Averages
• Using Algebra
• Interpreting Graphs and Charts
There is a book for each strategy at all 8 levels. Each strategy consists of a student book, comprising 20 lessons, and one teacher’s guide, specifically designed to aid learning and understanding.
From Research to Application:
The FOCUS on Mathematics series provides repeated and focused practice of key maths strategies in the context of word problems. With more than 800 word problems in the series, students gain multiple opportunities to practise core maths concepts and strategies.
Each Student Book features:
• Learn About  overview with instruction and modelling
• Preview  guided practice with scaffolding, plus sample questions with correct and incorrect responses for discussion
• 20 independent practice lessons
• 5 selfassessments
This series is designed for flexibility and can be used at any time to provide concentrated practice in the targeted strategies either to an entire class or individual students.
