Testimonials

What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

It is quite frankly the best money I have ever spent on my child. I really cannot thank you enough for providing this, it really is brilliant.

You have the most amazing program. Everybody loves it and the student's results have been in the high 90%'s, it's definitely due to your program.

  • K – Kindergarten
    • K.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • K.G.6 – Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, “Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?”

  • 1 – Grade 1
    • 1.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 1.G.2 – Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.(Students do not need to learn formal names such as “right rectangular prism.”)

  • Year 1
    • Measurement and Geometry
      • Shape

        • ACMMG022 – Recognise and classify familiar two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects using obvious features

  • 2 – Year 2
    • 2.NA – Number and algebra

    • 2.GM – Geometry and measurement
      • 2.GM.2 – Sort objects and shapes by different features and describe the features, using mathematical language

  • 3 – Year 3
    • 3.GM – Geometry and measurement
      • 3.GM.2 – Sort objects and two- and three-dimensional shapes by their features, identifying categories within categories
