The latest issue of Bespoke has been published, with up-to-date news from the Maths Hubs Programme. This issue previews professional development materials for Key Stage 3 maths teachers, which will be available in the 2019 summer term.
The Maths Hubs programme is looking for 175 secondary school maths departments across England to participate in a new, free programme of professional development, with the aim of improving teachers’ confidence in developing pupils’ mathematical reasoning.
The final report from the Commission on Assessment without Levels has endorsed the approach embodied by the NCETM’s recently published free materials to help teachers assess pupils’ mastery of mathematical concepts.
As part of its ongoing work to help primary teachers understand the principles of teaching for mastery, and implement the approach in the classroom, the NCETM has published new materials to support ongoing assessment of pupils’ understanding of the mathematics National Curriculum.
