Maths mastery is a hot topic and rightfully so. When children are taught using a mastery approach, they can develop mathematical fluency and learn to solve maths problems without having to memorise procedures.
But while the benefits of mastery teaching are clear, the approach presents challenges for school leaders and teachers; in fact a Maths – No Problem! recent survey of teachers revealed that 84% of schools don’t have enough information about mastery teaching, which is why Maths – No Problem! are offering all primary schools free access to its Primary Maths Series scheme of work.
Martin Casimir, Managing Director at Maths – No Problem! says: “We’re offering this free maths mastery resource to help combat the difficulties teachers told us they’re experiencing in identifying the right maths mastery resources to use.”
The Maths – No Problem! scheme of work supports teachers by providing an overview of the national curriculum topics covered during the school year for each term on a weekly basis. It also provides a full lesson breakdown for each of these topics and the learning objective for each lesson. This invaluable time-saving document allows teachers to concentrate on how, not what, to teach.
Unlike many free schemes of work, the Maths — No Problem! syllabus is based on the model developed in Singapore, which has been tested and refined over the last 30 years.
“I wish I had been taught maths this way at school”
Maths Leader, Implementing Maths — No Problem!
The scheme of work is clearly presented and easy to use. It outlines the content and topic order of the Maths – No Problem! series and indicates the level of depth needed to teach maths for mastery. The topics are colour coded to reflect the national curriculum content domain strands, which allows you to see when the different topics are introduced and revisited.
Learning is presented in small-step, logical sequences organised into individual lessons with a title indicating the focus of learning for that lesson. The sequence of the lessons is carefully organised with clear lines of progression. The scheme of work can also help you and your school to plan and monitor progress.
“It progresses so well over each lesson.The children have really taken to it.”
