Tailored consultancy support to develop mathematical problem-solving in real-life contexts.


Education Works' Mathematics Approaches are designed to develop ways to support the development of problem-solving, reasoning and fluency in maths to build on basic skills in real-life contexts. For example, the plan/teach/review sessions provide an opportunity to plan out a sequence of work, work alongside a teacher in the classroom and review together – looking at ‘next steps’ as a result of the input.

Each of EW Ltd's approaches have been carefully developed to tackle the specific challenges that teachers face to plan and deliver a practical, meaningful and successful mathematics curriculum in today's primary schools.
