There have been. Manipulatives. Ofsted’s 2012 report ‘Made to Measure’ suggests that although manipulatives are used in some primary schools to support teaching and learning they are not used as effectively or as widely as they might be.

Manipulatives

This article explores some research into their use and offers some suggestions about how using practical apparatus can support children’s mathematical thinking, reasoning and problem solving. Jenni draws on her own experiences of observing the use of manipulatives in Hungarian classrooms and makes links to some rich tasks from the website. Introduction I have spent a lot of the last year working with teachers and children on how best to teach arithmetic concepts and procedures to children in primary schools.

This has given me a lot of time to consider the ways in which we use apparatus of various kinds to help children to think and to support them to follow, sometimes complex, procedures to arrive at solutions to arithmetic problems. My Hungarian research bears this out. References. Manipulatives in the Primary Classroom : nrich.maths.org. Standup Mathematician. EU Referendum Voting Guide.

The apprenticeship system continues to be a major focus of the reform and the Government is aiming to increase the number of new starts to three million by 2020.

So how are senior leaders within the colleges preparing for this new landscape? To continue reading download the Further Education: New Challenges, New Opportunities report. See related inforgraphic.
