Lucy Patston, BA/BSc(Hons), PhD

My name is Lucy Patston. I'm the Founding Director of Adept Education (which used to trade as Reach Education). I am the author of the Reaching Competence Mathematics Programme and co-author of the new Literacy for all Learners programme. 


As a parent to three emerging school children, I realised how differently my children were being taught maths to the way I was taught. I had no idea of these “mental strategies” they were jabbering on about! 


I worked with talented maths specialist teachers to replicate the NZ maths curriculum in a series of activity books that sit alongside classroom teaching. The books complement your child's learning at school, encourage a love for the consistency and logic of maths, and have true-to-life problems in believable, real-life scenarios. They also contain suggested Apps (Apple & Android), paper resources, stickers, certificates and games!

I hope you and your children enjoy the books.
