5 Bits of Advice About: Teaching Maths
- Teach for understanding, not coverage of the scheme of work.
- Use concrete manipulative for all, not just lower sets.
- Make explicit links between concepts.
- Don’t try to make learning of maths ‘fun’. It can be fun, but that shouldn’t be your main aim.
- Teach to the top and support the bottom. Differentiate by support and scaffolding not content.
