### Welcome

Mathematics – The New Curriculum

• Don’t panic!!

• Number chain

Divide by 2

Multiply by 5

Multiply by 4

Subtract 73

What number do I have?

27

• To become more familiar with the content of the new National Curriculum for Mathematics.

• To know which formal written methods we use to support the new curriculum.

• To know how you can support your child at home with mathematics.

• The politics...

• The new national curriculum is being shaped to provide a level of challenge – and ambition – explicitly sharper than exists in the current national curriculum.

Michael Gove, April 2013.

• It is estimated that at least 1 in 4 of adults is innumerate.

• The employment prospects of today’s students are highly dependent on their level of mathematical knowledge on leaving education.

• Children must be able to recall quickly and accurately basic number facts (e.g. Number bonds and multiplication tables).

• Children must be fluent in applying quick, efficient written methods of calculation.

DfE 2012

• Probability has been removed (now in Secondary).

• Earlier and more challenging requirement for multiplication tables (up to 12x12).

• Clear expectations around written methods in addition to mental methods.

• Earlier and more challenging requirement for fractions and decimals.

• Increased requirement for pupils to use formulae for volume and to calculate the area of shapes other than squares and rectangles.

• Financial education has been reinforced with a renewed emphasis on essential numeracy skills, using money and working with percentages.

• A strong steer that the use of calculators should be restricted until the later years of primary.

• The new national curriculum aims to ensure that:

• Pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through increasingly complex problems and can apply and recall knowledge rapidly.

• Pupils can reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and developing a proof using mathematical language.

• Pupils can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication.

• We will divide into four, depending on the colour of the cube on your chair.

• Red – Mrs Hiscock – Addition and Subtraction

• Blue – Miss Carroll – Short and Long Multiplication

• Green – Mr Redmill – Short Division

• Yellow – Ms Marshall– Long Division

• Then, after 15 minutes, move onto the next operation in the next classroom.

• Parents' attitudes toward mathematics have an impact on children's attitudes. Children whose parents show an interest in and enthusiasm for mathematics will be more likely to develop that enthusiasm themselves.

• Play games that involve adding. E.g. Shut the Box.

• Talk about shapes that you see around the home, etc.

• When out shopping, talk about quantities and how much things cost.

• Use numbers on signs, car registrations plates, to play games, add and subtract, highest/lowest etc.
