Mrs Bennet is leading on Mastery in Secondary Mathematics and is working one day a week for the NW Abacus Maths Hub.
Once a week, we meet as a department to further improve teaching mathematics for understanding using MASTERY techniques and strategies.
We have invested in more apparatus to support students’ learning so they that can understand the structure of the mathematics before moving onto more abstract learning. We have also continued to use SMART to support the visual aspect of mathematics. All our homework grids for years 9 to 11 have additional Mastery Questions to improve students’ problem solving and reasoning skills by improving mathematical thinking.
