Teaching for Mastery in Mathematics is high in the education agenda at present.
Mastery of mathematics is something that we want pupils —all pupils— to acquire, or rather to continue acquiring throughout their school lives, and beyond. Teaching for mastery is already well advanced in many schools, and it forms a key part of work within the Maths Hubs Programme.
NCETM Essence of Teaching for Mastery - A document which describes the 'essence' of teaching for mastery in mathematics.
Some of the resources here are just one element of a sustained professional development process. This involved participation over a period of time by a specific group of teachers together with research and trialling of examples. Resources are shared as is and are offered as materials teachers might want to work with in their own professional development activities.
Schools may want to begin their journey to teaching for mastery with the self evaluations documents below to reflect on their current practice:
