5 Bits of Advice About: Teaching Maths

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