What are children capable of achieving in mathematics?  This question is at the heart of this book, which is a practical tool for teachers wanting to introduce more evidence-based maths teaching into their school.   

This is a timely publication, hot off the presses, and should be provided as reading material to all teachers through the staff library, in light of the National Numeracy Strategy, bringing evidenced practices that teachers might consider and embrace.

This invaluable handbook is essential reading for any education professionals looking to introduce the principles of mastery to their school’s mathematics curriculum. Mastering Mathematics shares the key principles of a proven mastery approach to teaching and learning in Primary schools, drawing on UK and international research and examples of the approach in action in UK schools.  Addressing the key aims of the 2014 National Curriculum, it provides practical guidance for implementing the approach alongside an action plan for schools, with supporting videos, which we will send you the link to when forwarding your copy of the programme.
