Edited by Professor David Burghes, this report outlines a sustainable method for enhancing the teaching and learning of mathematics in the primary education: the Mathematics Enhancement Programme (MEP). This focus on enhancing primary mathematics is based on the hypothesis that the only real way to produce young people who are mathematically confident and capable is to start in the primary phase of education.
Based on successful mathematics teaching styles from across the globe, the report includes a series of cases about various MEP techniques as well as the development of the programme in the UK.
It concludes that the development of new strategies for teaching maths at primary level can equip pupils with the skills and confidence needed to have good ‘number sense’ their entire lives.
In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
