Despite being taught for millennia, maths is still a tricky subject to master. In classrooms, children are expected to memorise formulas through individual rote learning, while varying attainment levels make it difficult to get everyone learning and progressing together.
As a teacher, meeting these challenges while still having time to plan comprehensive and engaging lessons that meet DfE standards and build upon prior learning can feel impossible.
But maths teaching looks different with Maths — No Problem! MNP is backed by 30 years of pedagogical research and is proven to give pupils a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts.
Research shows that learning outcomes are improved when pupils master a topic before moving on to higher-order content. MNP resources are structured to provide pupils with a reliable framework for building mathematical fluency – lesson after lesson, year after year.
Wondering what it looks like in action? We’re offering readers of Teach Primary a free trial of our Hub, where you’ll get access to online resources including Teacher Guides and Academy. It’s all there, and it’s all yours for 14 days.
Your free trial gives you an opportunity to see an online version of MNP Textbooks and Workbooks. Designed to aid learners of all attainment levels, they provide pupils with an unmatched level of engagement and long-term understanding of mathematical concepts.
Assessed by the DfE, MNP Textbooks meet the core criteria for a high-quality textbook to support teaching for mastery. Their intuitive, consistent lesson structure takes the uncertainty out of lesson planning and keeps your class moving forward at the right pace.
MNP Textbooks and Workbooks are founded on ideas developed by theorists such as Piaget and Bruner and are fully aligned to the 2014 English national curriculum.
They provide mathematical fluency without the need for rote learning and are on the DfE’s list of recommended textbooks for schools on the mastery programme. They use a spiral approach, keeping learning consistent for pupils year after year.
Headteacher Mark Cotton of Our Lady of Pity Primary, Wirral, said, “The whole approach is pedagogically sound which makes it completely compelling. I’ve not seen anything like this in education, ever.”
Cut down on planning time and make the most of every lesson with Teacher Guides.
This essential online resource includes content and lesson support for MNP Textbooks and Workbooks.
Educators know that staying on track takes more than getting through lesson content. This is where Teacher Guides come in.
Chapter by chapter, they outline the objectives for each lesson, recommend approaches to cover the material and suggest strategies for overcoming common pupil misconceptions or areas of difficulty.
Not only that, Teacher Guides support whole-class teaching. You’ll find differentiation tips and techniques for supporting struggling learners and challenging advanced ones, along with advice for assessing pupils’ understanding of the lesson.
Teacher Guides make lesson planning simple so you can focus on making maths better for your school.
