Mathematical Thinking and Reasoning

Maths is so much more than .....

To many, maths concerns itself with mathematical techniques and procedures, but fluency in these procedural skills is only part of the national curriculum.

The development of mathematical reasoning is fundamental to the development of a pupil’s progress and being able to use reasoning to solve problems is essential to not only achievement in examinations but being able to apply what has been learned of maths in the real world.

There are a number of ways that teachers can incorporate problem solving and reasoning into everyday maths lessons and the South Yorkshire Maths Hub aims to support teachers to develop their own practices to reflect the importance of these aspects of mathematical learning.
