Created by Australian primary teachers and maths leaders


“We love the clear learning intentions; enabling and extending prompts; and photos that show what work (especially recording methods) might look like in a real classroom. The packs are teacher-friendly. The activities are engaging and fun for the learners and teachers too. They use simple equipment in a variety of ways.”

—  Sue and Katrina, Maths Leaders, Pakenham Hills PS

PowerPoint summary of member feedback: 

NAPLAN student gain results at intensive hands-on maths 

schools for the matched student cohorts in 2018

(all teams had intensive PL throughout 2017 and 2018) 


Please note: Most programs advertise their growth results based only on their own assessments. Our included pre- and post-assessments are based on reasoning and problem-solving, with students showing working out and being able to articulate their strategies. However, we also believe it is important to evidence our results by verifiable NAPLAN student gains and raw scores at schools that are in disadvantaged areas. These schools had intensive professional learning during the times of these students gains, using our planning packs across all teams for two years or more in the lead-up to these results.

We want every Australian student to love maths by using materials to both make sense of it and genuinely enjoy the sequential journey of learning it. We want to hear cheers at the start of maths sessions. We want to see materials (not worksheets and not click-technologies) in every primary classroom engaged in mathematics. We want to hear students reasoning with each other and thinking out loud (not silence) and see students recording their mathematical findings while using the materials (rather than memorising rote-based rules). Ultimately, we aim to grow a generation of children who, as adults, will still love maths. 


To achieve this, Top Ten was founded and is still owned entirely by Australian primary teachers and maths leaders to support teachers with the huge task of day-by-day planning for excellent maths lessons. We created, then tried and tested sequential hands-on units in Australian classrooms for ten years, including photographs of classrooms in action during materials-based lessons, daily modelling by maths leaders and student work samples for each rich task. Our aim is to ensure that primary teachers have enough time and energy to deliver engaging and high-impact maths sessions at their class' points-of-need. To do this, we remove a significant portion of the burden of planning from scratch and the time-consuming search for engaging lessons that work in real classrooms. We grow each teacher's confidence and repertoire by making maths leaders' classroom modelling and coaching accessible to every teacher every day. This is achieved through illustrative photographs of lessons in action, student work samples and ongoing practical professional learning within each unit plan. 


Our goal is for every Australian student to fall in love with maths and become numerate, and to assist (in whichever way a team prefers to use our planning units and resources) every primary teacher to achieve this. 

In total, there are 900 rich tasks, all organised into developmentally-sequenced units; 500 new hands-on lessons for the early years and 400 real-life lessons for years 3-6. To maximise your time, every lesson includes:

  • photographs of classroom modelling and student work samples

  • warm-up games

  • an engaging tune-in or hook and a learning intention

  • lesson-specific maths vocabulary to develop 

  • questioning and feedback tips 

  • pre-planned enabling and extending prompts for ongoing in-class intervention and extension within every session. 

Please feel free to download the complimentary sample packs on the early years and years 3-6 pages to share and try the lessons with your teams.


Our Hands-on Maths

Planning Support Packages




Developmentally-sequenced units with new hands-on lessons for each critical skill throughout the early years. Diagnostic and formative assessments that pinpoint points-of-need. 

Lessons include enabling and extending prompts, engaging hooks, warm-ups, photographs of classroom modelling and student work samples. 

Easy-to-implement hands-on mathematics package created by Australian maths leaders for over ten years. 400 low-floor high-ceiling lessons and warm-ups for years 3-6 in sequential units. Lessons start with hooks to link content to students' lives and include both extension and support variations.

Bringing Literacy and Numeracy together!
Launch maths with literature and bring stories to life with hands-on lessons best-suited to each year level and concept throughout the year.

Growing Mathematicians

Created by Australian teachers

 with Australian students 

The only classroom-based, developmentally-sequenced, hands-on mathematics resource that provides day-by-day planning support for seven years of learning.
