Abstract

This presentation reports on a two year collaborative research project with teacher researchers in primary schools in England who were implementing a Singapore mastery maths approach. The study used video of lessons and stimulated recall interviews with the teachers. Through collaborative analysis with teacher researchers the study identified changes in the strategies the teachers used but also in their embedded beliefs about the nature of maths and the possibility that virtually all of their children can succeed in maths.

Additional Information: Professor Pete Boyd, University of Cumbria and Andy Ash, Our Lady of Pity School, Wirral. Be the first to hear the findings of a pioneering study into the use of Singapore maths in English schools and a fascinating insight into how the approach is changing teachers’ beliefs. The study debunks the widely held myth that children learn maths better when grouped by ability; this is a must-see conference exclusive.
