Maths-4-Life has been designed by the Centre for Research in Mathematics Education at the University of Nottingham to improve GCSE re-sit results in mathematics.
This research based approach has been shown to lead to improved outcomes through a focus on:
The approach is based around resources from the Standards Unit Box (Improving Learning in Mathematics) and other materials developed by Malcolm Swan and colleagues in the Centre for Research in Mathematics Education. The materials have been adapted and trialled over the last year in conjunction with 20 lead teachers from across the country to ensure that they are suitable for the particular needs of GCSE re-sit students.
We are currently recruiting schools and colleges to take part in a Randomised Control Trial of both the professional development resources and the associated lesson materials. For more information, or to get in touch, please see our project website.
Maths-4-Life has been jointly funded by the Education Endowment Foundation and JP Morgan.
