National Strategies Secondary Maths Collection - Improving Pupil and Parent Engagement in Mathematics

TES Secondary maths resource collections

Collection Author: Craig Barton - Maths AST and creator of www.mrbartonmaths.com (TES Name: mrbartonmaths)

A really useful set of resources from the National Strategies website all focussed on increasing both pupil and parental engagement in maths. As everybody knows, if you can get the parents on board, then that is half the battle done, and the resources here which help them understand what levels mean and what they can do to help their child progress are excellent. There are also some useful resources for improving pupil engagement in mathematics, which means you can be tackling the problem of a lack of engagement from both fronts!
