Teaching for mastery

NCETM logo

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.
