Samagra Shikshana Karnataka (SSK), having studied GKA 1.0, recognises the positive impact of enjoyable math learning experiences on children. Through activities involving Teaching Learning Materials (TLMs), SSK has recognised the necessity for similar resources for higher grade levels.

For students in grades 6-8, it is crucial to approach maths as a life lesson, achieved through hands-on experiences using TLMs that illuminate the procedures of mathematical concepts.

The programme aims to provide these TLMs to schools and offer training and support to teachers in government primary schools. These materials are specifically designed to aid in learning the competencies outlined in the National Curriculum Framework(NCF-2005). GKA 2.0 has been meticulously developed with extensive research and input from subject experts and practitioners in the field. It complements governmental initiatives aimed at improving the quality of maths learning outcomes.

The GKA 2.0 Maths Kit has Teaching-Learning Materials (TLMs) like the Place Value Mat, Number Counters, Round Counters, Number Line, Geometry multi Learning Aid, Transversal Line – TA, Polygons, Laminated Isometric Sheet and much more.

Math kits can be procured from:

  1. Sridhar - +919405759055/ +919449912514
  2. Chandraiah - +919972133088 |

These TLMs are supported by a Maths Training Manual (Kannada /English) and a Teacher’s TLM Handbook (Kannada /English) to facilitate learning in every classroom. The following resources are free and can be downloaded and used for effective classroom instruction.


These manuals provide guidelines for maths teachers on the use of teaching aids in the maths kit provided as a part of GKA 2.0

The Kannada and English versions of the Teacher TLM handbook are co-created and approved by SSK and the teachers of Karnataka. It is currently being used in 95 schools across Bangalore and 20 schools in Khordha Odisha

This training manual provides guidelines for any resource persons (maths RPs) on how to conduct GKA 2.0 trainings. It lists the uses of teaching aids (TLMs) in the maths kit provided as part of the GKA 2.0 programme as well as the philosophy of activity-based teaching and learning.

The guide is a reference for Resource Persons (RPs) to conduct a 1-day refresher training or 4-day GKA 2.0 training sessions. It explains how to present the GKA philosophy that GKA 2.0 also embodies, classroom management, dos and don’ts for the trainees/teachers with activities described in detail.
