Content development

Mathematics education

Nikki M Group writes and develops math content for Australian and international curriculums.

  • Australia (F–12)
  • United Kingdom (1–13)
  • North America (K–12)

Writing and developing new content

We create new content and work with publishers to:

  • create lesson plans and teacher resources to scaffold students’ mathematical understanding, fluency, reasoning, and problem-solving skills
  • incorporate hands-on manipulatives and interactive tools
  • generate preliminary material (front matter), which provides an overview of content and rationale to support both teachers and students
  • create end matter, such as an index, appendix or glossary
  • add value and depth to manuscripts by collaborating with authors to fulfil the requirements of the brief.

Developing math content to optimise learning outcomes.

Preparing manuscripts

We prepare author manuscripts for editorial and creative teams by:

  • formatting text into workable and styled templates
  • creating artwork briefs for photographs, illustrations, tables, charts and graphs
  • producing blackline masters to suit content and style guides.

Scope and sequence

We can work with a scope and sequence of a series to:

  • develop tables linking curriculum standards, codes, and descriptors to content in past, current and future grades or Key Stages
  • reference all lessons to the scope and sequence, learning outcomes, ‘I can …’ statements and key ideas
  • create a gap analysis of an existing series to be modified for a new curriculum, state, province or country.

  • Modifying or creating new content?
  • Adapting to a new curriculum?
  • Developing teacher or student resources?

Modifying existing resources

We customise existing content that needs to be repurposed, re-versioned or restructured.

  • Update and enhance existing resources.
  • Customise content for a new curriculum.
  • Adapt content to suit another province, state or country.

Teacher resources

We develop teacher resources including components for:

  • instructional and guided demonstrations of K–12 concepts using multiple learning strategies
  • teaching strategies to address misconceptions
  • dialogue and questioning for the teacher to scaffold students to higher order thinking
  • investigations, explorations, activities for game-based learning and extension activities
  • additional practice questions
  • step-by-step worked solutions
  • feedback and discussion for teachers with students.

Teaching methods

We work with author teams to create educational resources that utilise knowledge of the latest and best pedagogical practices.

We have experience with:

  • Singapore Math
  • Common Core
  • Polya’s four-step approach to problem solving
  • Bloom’s taxonomy of learning
  • 5e+ Model (engage, explore, explain, elaborate and evaluate)
  • Montessori Method.
  • Integrating STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) in inquiry-based learning, mathematical modelling and tool-based pedagogies.

Common questions

Can you help manage an external author team? 

We offer management services to streamline your writing team. Using our consultation services, we can develop a scope of work and get your project moving forward.

Contact us to schedule an appointment.

Are you able to liaise with our editorial team?

Our standard procedure is to allocate an editorial manager to your project. This person will be your single point of contact and liaise with your editorial team. They will collate all information into a brief and establish a consistent approach for your publication(s).

To find out how we can help you, contact us today.

Can you prepare a manuscript for our creative team?

Our writers are experienced in getting manuscripts ready for design, layout and typesetting teams. The manuscript can be marked-up and artwork briefs prepared.

Contact us for a formal quotation.

Can you write content to a structured template?

Most of our projects are written to conform to a specific structure. We can use your template or create a template for your project.

Talk to us about how you would like to start.

What teaching methods do you have experience with?

Our authors have extensive teaching experience in the mathematics classroom and can draw on the many teaching methods they have a direct association with. These methods include direct and differentiated instruction, modelling and hands-on learning, explorative, inquiry-based learning and game-based learning.
