Description The National Curriculum for Mathematics tells us that: ‘Mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand the world. These tools include logical reasoning, problem-solving skills and the ability to think in abstract ways.’ Indeed - Maths can be the very best brain gym, but those tools aren’t always easy to develop in the whirl of the numeracy lesson, when following the curriculum can lead us to lose sight of the open-ended tasks that promote real Mathematical thinking.
