SMILE (Secondary Mathematics Individualised Learning Experiment) was initially developed as a series of practical activities for secondary school students by practising teachers in the 1970s. It became a complete individualised scheme based around a network of activity cards and assessments. The cards were organised so that each student followed their own path through the work which was recorded on a network.

This collection contains:

  • SMILE workcards organised into mathematical topics based upon the SMILE networks.
  • SMILE booklets, which are cards that are booklets in themselves.
  • Supplementary materials.


The SMILE booklets are a collection of stand alone booklets, part of the SMILE mathematics network of numbered workcards.

The collection includes:

*Tables booklets



*Action Fractions

*Action Decimals

*Decimals to Fractions and Back Again
