Last September, Ofsted published Mathematics: Understanding the Score (see previous post for details) which examined evidence of how maths was being taught in schools. Following on from this, Ofsted has now published two booklets for maths teachers which aim to improve teaching by shifting it away from a narrow emphasis on skills.

There are two booklets: one for primary teachers, and one for those working in secondary schools. These may be worth a look if you will be helping children with numeracy during your placement.
