Mathematics - Programmes of Study
Mathematics – Problem solving and reasoning
Mathematics – Numbers and Patterns: laying foundations in mathematics, PNS 2009 -
Numbers and Patterns – focuses on number, particularly counting, and the students’ developing understanding of the patterns that underpin early work.
Mathematics – Mental maths documents
Teaching mental calculation strategies KS1 and KS2 1999 – offers guidance to teachers on teaching effective mental strategies for calculation.
Teaching children to calculate mentally 2010 – lists the number facts that children are expected to recall rapidly and suggests a range of suitable classroom activities.
Mathematics - Mathematical Challenges for able pupils, DfEE, 2000 - This booklet provides 98 pages of puzzles and problems for Key Stages 1 and 2. The activities are intended to challenge pupils and extend their thinking. Some of the puzzles and problems may be solved quickly, however others will need perseverance and may take longer than a single lesson.
Mathematics – Levelopaedia, Gloucestershire Mathematics Advisory Team – The Levelopaedias provide exemplifications and probing questions for each of the ‘assessment criteria’ for every National Curriculum level.
Mathematics – Securing Levels in Mathematics booklets, PNS 2010 - Each booklet addresses six key areas of learning in mathematics that children must secure to attain that in that specific level. There are five booklets in total:
Mathematics – Models and images posters, PNS 2009 – These posters exemplify key models and images which can be used to support the teaching of mental calculation strategies.
Mathematics – Overcoming Barriers documents, PNS 2009 – These documents provide information to assist you in helping children overcome barriers in mathematics. These resources will support teachers to progress children through different mathematics topics.
Mathematics – Pitch and Expectations Documents, PNS 2006 – These documents provide sets of questions to help identify pitch and expectations (pre new 2014 mathematics curriculum) and to help with assessment as children progress from the Foundation Stage through to Year 7. Teachers should be mindful of the changes in coverage and pitch in the new curriculum. Most of these questions have been reproduced by permission of the QCA.
Mathematics – Mathematical Vocabulary, PNS 2001 – These mathematical vocabulary booklets identify words and phrases that children need to understand and use if they are to make good progress in mathematics. Teachers need to be mindful these resources were produced pre the 2014 curriculum and should consider the coverage and pitch for some mathematics topics.
