Mathematics Mastery

Summary

This unit covers the building blocks of number; ensuring that a firm bedrock is established at the outset of this series.  With a focus on clarity of explanations and developing mastery, the unit aims to ensure that students are fluent with these critical basics.  Working with integers, decimals, percentage and fractions, students develop a fluency in performing operations within all these forms of number, of using equivalences and of applying their skills to contextualised problems and reasoning activities.  The mechanics of approximating decimal numbers is explored and applied to estimating the answer to a calculation. The unit is rounded off with two lessons focusing on key properties of number; factors, primes and multiples, HCF and LCM.  Contextualised problems help develop and embed this understanding.

What people say...

Many thanks for continuing to improve and expand your excellent resources. I can’t begin to add up the time it has saved us.

Jules Hazzledine. Head of ICT & Business Studies, William Farr School

Early career teachers will find these an invaluable resource to support developing their practice, knowing the material is approached with a consistent pedagogy that has stood the test of time, from a team of experienced teachers. Over time they can customise the lessons to better address the needs of their different classes and growing sense of themselves as teachers of mathematics.
