Mathematics Framework
This set of learning objectives and outcomes can be adapted to engage and challenge pupils throughout Key Stages 3 and 4.

APP in mathematics
Examples of marked work (standards files) that uses assessment focuses to help you make level judgements when Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP).

Developing pedagogy in mathematics
Study units and focused materials to help you gain a deeper understanding of mathematical pedagogy and enhance children's knowledge of key mathematical concepts.

Intervention and personalisation in mathematics
Lesson ideas to help you organise and monitor progression. This includes approaches you can use to reduce gaps in pupils’ performance through personalised support.

Study Plus
A twoyear programme aimed at helping Key Stage 4 pupils achieve their potential in GCSE mathematics and English.

Algebra Study Units
Learning objectives provide the focus for these activities, examples and resources, which you can use to create and connect classroom approaches.

Core plus in mathematics
Focused materials that help subject leaders of mathematics raise pupil attainment levels as part of the crosscurricular programme.

A parent's guide to secondary mathematics
These reallife contexts and teaching summaries can help you involve parents and carers with their children’s education.
Mathematics topics

Lesson plans
Suggestions and advice on how to get the most out of planning techniques as part of the new curriculum, and how to prioritise the development of lesson plans.

Mathematics pitch and expectation – Year 6 to 7 progression
This publication provides sets of questions to help identify pitch and expectation to help with assessment as children progress and extend their learning through Year 6.

Raising attainment in Key Stage 4 through intervention strategies in English and mathematics
The aim of the intervention was to achieve at least 60% 5A*C with English and maths. This is a usergenerated case study.

Securing levels in mathematics
The 'Securing levels' resources provide teachers with standards, attainment levels, goals and approaches to use when securing levels 1 to 5 in mathematics. The resources address key learning areas and contain links to downloadable worksheets and other resources that can be used in the classroom.

Step 1 Objective
This objective focuses on understanding division and recognising that division is the inverse of multiplication. Relevant questioning and downloads help teachers to identify the skills which pupils should already have at this stage of their learning, along with probing questions relating to this knowledge. For pupils who find this objective a barrier, simpler scenarios and activities are proposed, together with suggested resources. The objective is part of the Equations, formulae and identities substrand in the mathematics progression maps for Algebra.

Step 10 Objective
This objective focuses on solving a pair of simultaneous linear equations by eliminating one variable, and linking a graphical representation of an equation or pair of equations to the algebraic solution. Relevant questioning and downloads help teachers to identify the skills which pupils should already have at this stage of their learning, along with probing questions relating to this knowledge. For pupils who find this objective a barrier, simpler scenarios and activities are proposed, together with suggested resources. The objective is part of the Equations, formulae and identities substrand in the mathematics progression maps for Algebra.

Step 2 Objective 2
This objective focuses on understanding the principles of the commutative, associative and distributive laws as they apply to multiplication. Relevant questioning and downloads help teachers to identify the skills which pupils should already have at this stage of their learning, along with probing questions relating to this knowledge. For pupils who find this objective a barrier, simpler scenarios and activities are proposed, together with suggested resources. The objective is part of the Equations, formulae and identities substrand in the mathematics progression maps for Algebra.

Step 3 Objective 1
This objective focuses on making general statements about odd and even numbers. Relevant questioning and downloads help teachers to identify the skills which pupils should already have at this stage of their learning, along with probing questions relating to this knowledge. For pupils who find this objective a barrier, simpler scenarios and activities are proposed, together with suggested resources. The objective is part of the Equations, formulae and identities substrand in the mathematics progression maps for Algebra.

Step 3 Objective 2
This objective focuses on explaining a generalised relationship (formula) in words. Relevant questioning and downloads help teachers to identify the skills which pupils should already have at this stage of their learning, along with probing questions relating to this knowledge. For pupils who find this objective a barrier, simpler scenarios and activities are proposed, together with suggested resources. The objective is part of the Equations, formulae and identities substrand in the mathematics progression maps for Algebra.

Step 4 Objective
This objective focuses on understanding and using the relationships between the four operations, principles of the arithmetic laws, and using brackets. Relevant questioning and downloads help teachers to identify the skills which pupils should already have at this stage of their learning, along with probing questions relating to this knowledge. For pupils who find this objective a barrier, simpler scenarios and activities are proposed, together with suggested resources. The objective is part of the Equations, formulae and identities substrand in the mathematics progression maps for Algebra.
