Adventures: Primary Mathematics – Book 1 is the second book in Carlong’s Adventures series to hit bookstores and bookshelves. As the sister text of Adventures: Primary Language Arts – Book 1, it provides extensive coverage of the Mathematics concepts taught in Grade 1 (students ages 6 to 7) throughout the Caribbean.

Adventures: Primary Mathematics – Book 1 uses three playful but smart monkeys, Max, Mindy and Mikey, to encourage fun-filled learning and to help students to improve their critical thinking skills.  The activities, projects and lessons within the book utilize the 5E model (Engage, Explain, Explain/Elaborate, Extend, and Evaluate) in keeping with the approach of the new curriculum, and facilitate individual and co-operative learning. Catering to all types of learners, the textbook also utilizes the STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics) approach through songs, projects, etc. to foster students’ sense of inquiry and problem-solving skills, as well as make learning easier and fun.
