Some of the main features of the curriculum are:

  • It is mastery-oriented and organized into chapters by topics. Thus, in each chapter the curriculum concentrates on one theme and its connecting topics (such as place value, multiplication, or geometry). Each grade level typically contains 8-10 chapters.
  • The curriculum focuses strongly on conceptual understanding.
  • Visual models and exercises are used a lot.
  • Mental math and number sense are emphasized.
  • The curriculum is nearly self-teaching for many children, since the full explanations of concepts are included in the student books. Thus it requires fairly little preparation time from the teacher.
  • There are free videos that are matched to the curriculum.

What is provided?

At the heart of the curriculum are two student worktexts (A and B) for each grade, which contain both the teaching (explanations) and all the student work (exercises). Besides the student worktexts, the curriculum also includes:

  • answer keys
  • chapter tests and an end-of-year test
  • additional cumulative revisions
  • a versatile worksheet maker (Internet access required)
  • a list of supplementary online games for each chapter
  • many videos (available free online).

Additionally, the download version provides these "extras":

  • files to replace the chapter on money in grades 1, 2, and 3 in British, European, Australian, New Zealand, U.S., and South African currencies. The student worktexts use Canadian dollars as a default currency.
  • bonus software Soft-Pak.
  • The PDF files you get can be filled in on a computer, phone, or tablet, using the annotation tools found in many PDF apps. See more.

You can read more details about the curriculum at the Frequently Asked Questions and Answers page.


Canadian version

Math Mammoth Canadian Version is essentially the same as the U.S. version of Math Mammoth, only customised to the Canadian audience in these aspects:

  • The currency used in the money chapters in grades 1-3 is the Canadian dollar. This means it teaches children to count Canadian coins, and teaches about the rounding to the nearest five as done in Canada. (The download versions for these grades include the chapter on money also for US, British, European, South African, New Zealand currencies.)
  • The curriculum teaches the metric measurement units. Imperial units, such as inches and pounds, are not used.
  • The spelling conforms to British international standards (British English).
  • Page (paper) size is Letter.
  • Large numbers are formatted with a space as the thousands separator (such as 12 394). (The decimals are formatted with a decimal point, like in the US version.)

Please note that the curriculum is simply a copy of the US version of Math Mammoth, which is aligned to the US Common Core Standards. Therefore, the curriculum may not meet all the standards in your province, or may cover topics in a different grade or year than what your standards specify.

"I particularly liked the free math videos where you can actually see Maria explain each of the math concepts! There are a ton of videos for your kiddos to follow along with her as they do the problems. This allowed me to get more work done and enabled my son to work on his own. Win, Win!!"
