Spectrum maths

The Spectrum Maths series of books, aimed at primary and lower secondary level, were published to supplement the mathematics schemes that schools were already using. The series included books on investigations, data handling, games, algebra / shape and space, and number skills.

The series was defined in terms of three ability levels. Broadly defined, these levels were:

The books link activities contained within them to the attainment targets of using and applying, number, shape, space and measures, and data handling, National Curriculum levels were also assigned to the activities.

Each activity has comprehensive notes summarising the main content of the activity, the resources or equipment required and a section on possible extensions, with ideas for stimulating the able child.
