About Cambridge HOTmaths

Cambridge HOTmaths is a comprehensive mathematics learning system – an interactive online maths learning, teaching and assessment resource for students and teachers, for individuals or whole classes, for school and at home.

A suite of flexible resources (printable and online) are provided for all types of classrooms ranging from those with no technology to full laptop access, and includes projectable material in all lessons for interactive and non-interactive whiteboards.

Developed by a dedicated group of educators, technicians and designers, Cambridge HOTmaths is a high quality maths resource for students and teachers.

In September 2009 Cambridge and HOTmaths combined forces to offer cutting-edge technology and best practice to support mathematics teaching and learning in Australian and New Zealand schools.

Cambridge University Press has since published a range of products with integrated digital resources powered by Cambridge HOTmaths, including Essential Mathematics, Cambridge Senior Mathematics, ICE-EM Mathematics Third Edition and CambridgeMATHS Stage 6. These products deliver a host of interactive features to enhance the teaching and learning experience, and when connected to a class teacher account offer a powerful Learning Management System.

Cambridge University Press has been publishing high-quality curriculum-based materials for school students for over 150 years. It publishes across a range of subject areas including Mathematics, Business and Commerce, Information Technology, History and English.

Cambridge HOTmaths is committed to the future of education in the region, and will continue to develop exceptional resources that reflect specific syllabus requirements and broader curriculum developments and incorporate educational change and technological innovation.
