Use our contextualisation toolkit

Teaching and learning maths in contexts that relate directly to a student’s interests – other studies, work experience, or personal life – can help them to see its relevance to them. It can also help them to develop a deeper and more sustained understanding of mathematical concepts.

Our contextualisation toolkit offers helpful guidance on using contexts and developing your own contextualised teaching and learning resources. It focuses on some specific context areas to show how the approach could be applied more generally:

  • Construction and the built environment
  • Health, social care and childcare
  • Business, administration and entrepreneurship
  • Leisure and tourism
  • Hair and beauty
  • Hospitality and catering
  • General life and personal interests

Much of the content is also relevant to Functional Skills Mathematics.
