Mathematics: understanding the score
The Ofsted report ‘Mathematics: understanding the score' was published on 19th September, spearing news headlines which emphasise one of the findings, that too much mathematics is "taught to the test". The report is drawn from evidence garnered chiefly during inspections between April 2005 and December 2007 from 192 schools. This evidence, as the report clearly states, played a part in the findings of the Primary Review of Mathematics, published last Summer.
