Principles of the New Curriculum The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils: become fluent in mathematics develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety or routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions
“I know all my tables, I have got all my stickers on my chart!” Sally knows all her tables up to 12 x 12 When asked what is 12 x 13 – she looks blank What does this say about Sally’s maths understanding? What do we do about this?
Primary Mathematics: what has changed? (in general) 1. Higher expectation overall. 2. Fewer objectives. 3. Earlier introduction of formal written methods. 4. Emphasis on making connections across the maths curriculum. 5. Depth not breadth – therefore Able and Talented children no longer move on to the concepts for higher year groups. 6. Children to work broadly at the same pace through the objectives.
Primary Mathematics: what has changed? (in depth 1) Data handling is now referred to as “statistics” Shape and space is now referred to as “geometry” Statistics is not included in Y1 There is no use of calculators except near the end of KS2 Larger numbers earlier – up to 10 million Tables to 12x12 by end of Y4 Earlier introduction of standard units of measurement (use of the term “mass” in KS1 as well as KS2)
Earlier and more challenging requirement for fractions and decimals (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing) Introduction of Roman numerals Using a formula to find volume of shapes Calculate the area of parallelograms and triangles Probability has moved to KS3 Introduction of formal algebra in Year 6 Units will now be referred to as “ones” Primary Mathematics: what has changed? (in depth 2)
MATHEMATICS ‘Old’ Curriculum / ‘New’ Curriculum Using & Applying / (taught through all areas) Number & Algebra / Number including place value, +, -, x, Geometry and Measures / Measurement Handling Data / Geometry including shape properties, position and direction New area included: Statistics (from Year 2)
Maths games to play at home… I thinking of a number … Child: I am thinking of a number between 1 and 100. Parent: Is it more than 50? Child: No. Parent: Is it an even number? Child: No. Parent: Is it more than 20 but less than 40? Child: Yes. Parent: Can you reach it by starting at zero and counting by 3's? Child: Yes.
