Take Home Maths
Produced by the Learning Skills Improvement Service (LSIS), this case study addresses the theme of embedding functional skills. From Reading Borough Council, it looks at a group of teachers who worked collaboratively across secondary schools to explore strategies for developing functional skills in mathematics.
Individual members chose to explore their own themes under the umbrella of teaching functional mathematics, looking at scaffolding, contexts, level of mathematics, student choice and open-endedness. A number of lessons were developed and written up as a resource for schools, ‘Take Home Maths: A Study of Functional Mathematics in the Classroom’ (included in this resource).
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
