Junior Maths is an ITV schools TV series from the 1980s, covering Mathematics for primary school pupils.

Maths for junior pupils led by Fred Harris and Mary Waterhouse. Junior Maths includes games and activities in the studio on an individual subject each week, with recurring items running from week to week to build up children's familiarity at working with numbers, just like its predecessors Basic Maths and Leapfrog.

This series has a particular focus on using microcomputers (specifically the BBC Model 'B') to support maths investigations - the presenters are shown using a computer in the studio, some of the animated films from previous years are replaced by computer graphics, and 12 different computer programs written specifically to support the series were available to be used in the classroom.
