Everything You Need To Run A Whole School Maths Mastery Event

I recently organised an event in my school:  ‘Mastering Maths Day’.  The aim was to encourage further embedding of ‘mastery‘ activities in everyday maths lessons and also to boost enjoyment of the subject.

Mastery, in a nutshell, is developing a thorough and deep understanding of concepts – often this is achieved through well scaffolded activities and problem solving.

The week before the event, I explained the day at the staff meeting.  I also gave out a home learning activity in which all of the pupils had to design their own maths game.

During the day itself, exciting puzzles and problems were completed in classes – please see the resource folder below (credit goes to NRICH from which I took/adapted some of the challenges).  In the  afternoon, I ran a ‘Maths Bee’.  This was a competition, similar to a spelling bee, but with mental maths questions.
