About Us

 

Random Masters is a 100% Australian owned and operated business.  It is the result of a collaboration between teachers with many years of  experience in both primary and secondary education (and who also happen to have somewhat of an addiction to Microsoft Excel). 

The first randomly generated worksheets were created over 10 years ago.  In those days the worksheets were all about the basics - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The concept has come a long way since then.  We've since broadened our focus and developed worksheets to cover the majority of the mathematical skills students will be required to learn in their first 12 years of education.  What's more, the original worksheet developers are still with the company, and very much hands on. Chances are, if you request a worksheet, they'll be involved in creating it for you.


Our Philosophy

We're somewhat old school in our approach to mathematics education.  We see modern computer technology as a useful tool in education, but not necessarily a solution.

On the worksheet side of things, our philosophy is one of "practice makes perfect" and providing opportunity for practice is what our website sets out to do.  We believe that, in this technological world, there's still a place for pen and paper in developing basic skills in mathematics. That being said, why create your own worksheets when we can generate them for you?

However, many modern students are also looking for a interactive aspect to their learning. As a result, we've developed some interactive worksheets which students can complete on screen. Most of these are developed around basic skills - number facts, rounding etc - so that students receive instant feedback and so develop these key skills.

For teachers, we're developing more demonstration worksheets - worksheets designed for display to classes via multimedia projector. These can be of great benefit to visual learners. And, we're always on the lookout for new ideas to add to the range we offer.

Why do we develop in Excel? And why the PDF worksheets?

Excel is an extremely powerful mathematical tool. We've spent many years working with Excel to develop these resources, and we've barely scratched the surface of the capability of the program.  We use an array of formulas and techniques to do what we do, and enjoy the challenge of creating custom spreadsheet solutions.  However, not everyone has access to, or is comfortable with Excel. So, by printing our worksheets to PDF, we've made Random Masters worksheets easily accessible to everyone.
