What is Teaching for Mastery?
The Yorkshire and the Humber Maths Hub team believe that all children can become fluent, reasoning and problem-solving mathematicians. We want children to engage in mathematical thinking that will allow them to develop a connected conceptual understanding of the subject. The teachers we work with are developing their practice in a range of ways including:
Making use of concrete manipulatives and pictorial representations that help learners to uncover and articulate mathematical structure.
Crafting lessons so that mathematical talk is encouraged.
Using the principles of intelligent practice when choosing or writing questions.
Promoting a positive can-do mindset that expects to learn from mistakes.
Providing enjoyable and engaging tasks that build skills and allow misconceptions to be diagnosed.
