Representation and Structure

Representations expose mathematical structure.

Procedural Variation

Calculations are

connected and pupils

use the relationships to

make connections.

Conceptual Variation

Representing the same

concepts in different ways

to draw out essential features.

Making connections between the different representations is important.

Mathematical Thinking

Children and teachers need to think mathematically. This means to:

• look for pattern,

• make connections,

Fluency

Having instant recall of              number bonds to ten                and within ten and                   being able to apply                  these to multiples

eg 40 + 20 = 60

and bridging ten

8 + 5 = 8 + 2 + 3 = 13

is crucial for mastery of the    curriculum.

Learn the facts so that the mind is freed up to think about concepts.
