Planning Resources

 

 

 

  The old Framework for Secondary Mathematics Supplement of Examples is a useful planning document for all mathematics teachers.  It provides mathematics learning objectives together with a wide range of examples of what pupils should be able to do.   Click on the pdf to access the Supplement of Examples.

Mathematics Progression Maps
The progression maps for mathematics are intended to help with planning.   They describe the progression from level 3 to GCSE grade C in ten steps using teaching objectives.  The approximate National Curriculum level of each of the steps in the progression maps is shown below.
Step 1 Weak level 3 Step 6 Secure level 5
Step 2 Secure level 3 Step 7 Weak level 6
Step 3 Weak level 4 Step 8 Secure level 6
Step 4 Secure level 4 Step 9 Weak level 7
Step 5 Weak level 5 Step10 Secure level 7

 

There are three sections in each map:

  • Examples of what pupils should know and be able to do
  • Probing questions
  • What if pupils find this a barrier?

This booklet suggests some approaches that have been found to be effective in enabling learners to work on developing an understanding of number, and of the relationships between operations. These are not new ideas, but rather an attempt to collate some strategies that have been used effectively.

This booklet suggests some approaches that have been found to be effective in enabling learners to use measures effectively and to relate them to other mathematical concepts.

This booklet suggests some approaches that have been found to be effective in enabling learners to use time and money effectively and to relate them to other mathematical concepts.

This booklet suggests some approaches that have been found to be effective in enabling learners to use fractions effectively and to relate them to other mathematical concepts.

This booklet addresses six key areas in mathematics that pupils must secure in order to attain level 4. It sets out standards to be achieved and suggests teaching approaches, relevant intervention materials, teaching and learning resources and assessment prompts.

A large selection of lesson plans and resources are available on this website. Whilst these will not be appropriate for use for one-to-one tuition as they stand, they provide a wealth of ideas and materials which can be adapted to support work with individuals.  Click on the icon to link to the resources.
