Teaching for mastery
Mastering maths means students of all ages acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject.
The phrase ‘teaching for mastery’ describes the elements of classroom practice and school organisation that combine to give students the best chances of mastering maths.
Achieving mastery means acquiring a solid enough understanding of the maths that’s been taught to enable students to move on to more advanced material.
The NCETM offer a range of materials, guidance and opportunities to understand and develop a mastery approach in your classroom and school.
Attend the MEI Annual Conference
Our annual conference runs soon after the summer exams session, and you’re invited. It’s an amazing opportunity for maths teachers and enthusiasts at all stages of their careers to share, explore, discuss and evaluate ideas for the classroom. There’s a huge choice of sessions for you to join, led by experienced teachers and subject experts from across the maths community. It all adds up to a brilliant experience that’s exceptional value for money.
The MEI conference has revolutionised my teaching.
Fantastic conference – a really enjoyable experience. Rejuvenated my enthusiasm for teaching.
