About Preventing the Numeracy Gap Course:
Students enter school at very different levels in their readiness for numeracy. Unfortunately, some are prenumerate. By that we mean that they have had little or no exposure to number, measurement, or spatial thinking. They have no idea how or why numbers are used in everyday life. Their mathematical vocabulary may be limited to only 6 to 10 words. Some students may not be prenumerate but may be a long way behind others in their mathematical experiences.
We are becoming progressively more and more sophisticated in our understanding of the needs of young learners as they become literate. There are burgeoning approaches to literacy intervention and support for those not staying on track.
Not so much so for numeracy development!
Research is VERY clear. The failure to develop number sense in the first months of school can have devastating effects on students’ numeracy and mathematical progress in the future.
There are some absolutely key subitizing, counting and number recognition elements that every child needs as early in their numerate development as possible. This course identifies them and shows how you might develop and track these key skills.
As always, Ann provides a range of practical ideas, backed by research, and walks you through the steps you’ll need to take to ensure you are doing the best you possibly can to ensure your students are off to a life of numerosity.
This 4 part, combined video and text course covers:
- Introduction and research
- Early number sense
- Connecting the key skills – subitizing, counting and number recognition.
Yours forever once purchased, you’ll have access to Ann’s help in the online Natural Maths course environment. As teachers participate and add new ideas, and Ann responds, this course will further develop as an invaluable guide to Foundation (and any other student not yet developing number sense) Intervention.
Ensure your young mathematicians have what it takes! It’s never too late to check if your students are on track and are staying on track! It’s never too late to intervene!
It’s never too late to prevent the numeracy gap!
This course also includes a copy of the SUBITIZING FOUNDATIONS BOOK of $22 value - recent winner of the parents picks award.

It is imperative that students can count in decimal values and bridge from hundredths to tenths and tenths to whole numbers. Decimal value has been designed to meet this need.
Research suggests that we do a terrible job of introducing clocks and time concepts. Telling the Time takes a research based approach to getting off to a sound start with time, and with extending time concepts.
Using a chef's dilemma as a starting point, students can develop their number sense with this problematized situation lesson plan that covers a wide range of mathematical topics and can be adapted for students from Foundation to Year 3.
Most approaches to place value focus on fluency and understanding only, this interactive tool stretches students understanding throuhg reasoning and problem solving.
At Natural Maths its our belief that students should have tools to support their learning right where they need them - on their desk.
