Invitation To Participate In A New Project

 

Untitled

 

Mathematics in Key Stage 3 is changing, as more schools focus on the development of mastery, and prepare for a new emphasis at GCSE in solving non-routine problems. Some schools are moving to mixed ability teaching, while others are providing a combination of setted and mixed ability teaching. Teachers recognise that Key Stage 3 is crucial for laying the foundations for GCSE success.

 

We would like to invite you to be part of a new project working with Key Stage 3 mathematics teachers to:

  • Enable students to develop mastery in mathematics

  • Encourage students to develop a variety of strategies for problem-solving

  • Support the development of a deep conceptual understanding

  • Support students’ progress in both mixed and setted groups

 

The mathematics team at Manchester Metropolitan University has been working with Realistic Mathematics Education for more than 10 years.  We have designed and developed a range of successful materials based on this approach. We are now inviting schools to take part in a 2-year trial using these materials, fully funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), and involving students beginning Year 7 in September 2018. 

 

Please see the attached flyer link below for more details of how the project will work and how your school would be involved as part of the intervention or control groups.  You can also find more details of the trial on the EEF website here.

To register your interest in taking part in this project, please complete our short on-line form via this link. Alternatively, email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are looking for 120 schools to participate. Please register your interest as soon as possible.
