OFSTED - what does OFSTED say about Mathematics Teaching?

A)   Mathematics - Made to Measure  May 2012

B)   Mathematics - inspections from January 2012. 

Generic grade descriptors and supplementary subject-specific guidance for inspectors on making judgements during subject survey visits to schools

C)  Ofsted Examples of Good Practice in Secondary Mathematics Report from King Edwards VI Camp Hill School for Boys 2012

D)  Ofsted Report 2008  : Mathematics Understanding The Score.  

"The best teaching was rooted in developing pupils’ understanding of key concepts. It was inclusive in terms of ensuring that all pupils made substantial progress, no matter what their starting points. 

  • In the outstanding lessons, the teachers had high expectations of pupils’ enjoyment and achievement. 
  • They made conscious efforts to foster a spirit of enquiry, developing pupils’ reasoning skills through approaches that saw problem-solving and investigation as integral to learning mathematics. 
  • They checked that everyone was challenged to think hard and they adapted how they were teaching."
