The paradigm of teaching and learning has been changed now a days. In the present scenario major thrust of teaching is to facilitate the learners and provide them the learning experiences, so that they can construct knowledge by their own thinking process and prior experiences. To achieve this, it is very necessary to provide them innovative and thinking situation in which learners can think at their own pace. In this process, self-learning can play a vital role in enhancing the learners thinking potentials. The purpose of this article is to explore the various self-learning materials, their uses and role in the present time, particularly with reference to school teaching and to provide a systematic over view of the self-learning approach in mathematic. The discussions in the present article deals with the self-learning materials (SLMs) along with the innovative and other child centered self-learning materials like; self-learning module in mathematics, worksheets based on mathematics, open source software’s for mathematics learning, instructional program designed for self-learning in mathematics, along with various initiatives for better self- learning. The discussion of the present article will be fruitful to stakeholders, school teachers for enhancing the quality of teaching learning of mathematics across the globe.
