The Math Mastery Series (MMS) encompasses three programs: Junior Elementary Math Mastery (JEMM); Junior Elementary Math Mastery+ (JEMM+); and Elementary Math Mastery (EMM).
JEMM+ is a bridging program, more challenging than JEMM and not as difficult as EMM. Designed to equip students with the appropriate level of knowledge to successfully undertake EMM, it is ideal for middle primary, upper primary and secondary school remedial students.

The Farkota Direct Instruction (DI) model consists of meticulously scripted daily lessons, delivered orally by the teacher. Each program, JEMM, JEMM+, and EMM, consists of its own unique set of strands, each starting at base level, with daily assessment an integral part of the learning process.
Maximising every benefit a mental math program is capable of yielding, the Math Mastery Series:
- Serves as a daily diagnostic tool
- Maps student progress
- Identifies precisely where and when students experience difficulty
- Contains inbuilt assessment and correction procedures
- Instils fluency and automaticity in fundamental math skills
The Visual Delivery CD-ROM:
- Includes all visual diagrams, formulas and display material
- Maximises time efficiency
- Allows for effortless delivery
- Enhances student engagement
- Supports low-ability students
MMS Student Workbooks
myJEMMdata; myJEMM+data; and myEMMdata:
Each day students record, summarise and represent their own personal data. Students use various forms of data representation which enables them to map their performance, all the time serving as a subtle and powerful learning supplement. The entire workbook flows with the program so as to maximise time-efficiency. From a teacher viewpoint, the Student Workbook is as an invaluable diagnostic tool and assessment record.
