Mathematics Mastery Documents 

The workbooks below  consist of weekly mathematics tasks. Please read the parental guidance carefully before starting each task to familiarise yourself with the content.

 

How do I use the booklet?

Set aside time each week to complete the tasks. You don't have do one everyday. Take your time and work through the booklet at your own pace!

 

Suggested Timings

Each session is designed to last around 30 minutes (20 minute Talk Task and 10 minute independent activity).

 

Session Guidance

It is important the get your children talking to improve and expand their mathematical vocabulary. Consider getting them to use equipment, manipulatives, models and images to show and explain their working out. Challenge them to think mathematically! Use the Prompts for Thinking listed to help them to build up habits in the way they think about mathematical situations.

 

Step-by-step

 

  1. Reason it: Explain how you know. Focus on reasons rather than answers. What could you say, do, draw or write to help someone else understand?
  2. Generate examples and non-examples: What are the important features? What features are not important (e.g. colour)?
  3. True or false? If true, give examples to support your answer. If false, give a counter example.
  4. Find all possibilities: Have you found all the possible answers? How do you know? Did you work systematically? What’s the same? What’s different? Compare and contrast and look for connections. How many different answers can you give?
  5. Always, sometimes or never true? Give examples to show if the statement is always, sometimes or never true. How do you know?
