Volume 2, Issue 1

Maths – Autumn 2009

The second issue focuses on maths. Everyone agrees that maths is a critical subject for all school pupils. But how can teachers best ensure that all pupils reach their full potential? Although there is a good deal of evidence on what works (and what doesn’t) at both primary and secondary level, it is not always easy to find this information. We are very pleased to have contributions from some of the world’s leading researchers on the subject, and we hope that their articles prove interesting, and help you make informed decisions.
