Blog 18

by Ian Fisher

Posted on June 19, 2018 at 14:23


Every summer I like to add my thoughts for the year and to mention some of my favourite worksheets that have been added to the ever growing 10ticks collection. Hundreds of worksheets have been added this year, and picking out my favourites is like picking my favourite child, sometimes not that difficult a task!


Our aim is to help teachers, by creating a one-stop shop for you. Instead of having to spend hours trawling around the internet, wasting your valuable time, everything you need is here, in one place. With 10ticks you also know that you can rely on the quality of the materials.

For the last few years mathematics educationalists have been focused on the Mastery approach and problem solving. Many people think of 10ticks as being simply consolidation worksheets (which is a large part of the Mastery approach!). I believe that this outdated thinking doesn’t do 10ticks justice. You need to explore 10ticks a little more, and seek out investigations/problems solving/puzzles etc to see how they can deliver lessons (and Mastery) for you. Subscribers should also look out for Worksheet of the Week that is sent out by email every Monday. Hopefully you will find some great ideas to use with your students.

Secondary school teachers should look at our resources from Year 2 onwards, as much of them could be appropriate for your lower ability KS3 students. Our materials are mapped to the ambitious primary National Curriculum, Reception to Year 6. The remaining materials are grouped by year for secondary, Year 7 to Year 11. To make this easier to understand for GCSE students, Foundation Tier ends with Year 9 and the extra materials needed for the Higher Tier are in Years 10 and 11.

So Pop Pickers, here is a countdown of my top 10 favourite resources added this summer:

Number 10

Paper Chain Hoops (Multiplication 11 and 12) 1

This is used with Paper Chain Hoops (Multiplication 11 and 12) 2. Students can colour the paper chain links or you can print them on coloured paper. If printed on different coloured paper, mix and match the links to make a more brightly coloured paper chain. Find the next paper chain link by finding the answer to the multiplication at the end of another link.

There are many other paper chain sheets. Search ‘paper chain’ to find other examples.

Target Year 4

Number 9

Exploring Rules of Indices

This worksheet features the rewriting of calculations so they are in the form 2n. These emphasise the rules of indices that should already be known. Students finish by recording these laws, using information from the calculations they have rewritten, along with any previous knowledge.

Target Year 10

Number 8

Spidering Substitutions 1

This worksheet, along with Spidering Substitutions 2, looks at substituting in to quite complex equations. The equations are built along pathways of smaller equations, so students can see the BIDMAS element of the substitution. In Substitution Tables the pathways are replaced by tables, and fractional and negative numbers are used in the substitutions.

Target Year 7

Number 7

Concentric Circles

A series of worksheets that focuses on areas of circles/rings in terms of π starting with Concentric Circles and Shading Concentric Circles. It progresses to thirds and quarters of circles, and to finding equivalent areas with Concentric Circle Parts and Matching Concentric Circle Areas. The final sheet, Archery Targets, investigates the areas of different archery targets, as well as redesigning the target as a square with same area as the circle.

Target Year 9

Number 6

Zoom In (Thousandths)

The worksheet looks at zooming in on a number line. The number line starts between two consecutive whole numbers, then zooms in between two tenths. The tenths’ number line is shown below the first number line. It is then zoomed in again, to a new number line, showing hundredths. A number (thousandths) marked on this third number line has to be identified.

The Zoom Out (Thousandths) worksheet has a similar layout. Here the information given is thousandths, and students work outwards to find the missing information. Students should then make their own sets of questions with Make Your Own Zoom (Thousandths).

There are Zoom In and Zoom out cards for tenths and hundredths. Use the search facility to find these.

Target Year 5

Number 5

Area and Perimeter Cards

Finding the perimeters and areas will involve Pythagoras and trigonometry, as well as the traditional perimeter and area formulae. On each of the two blank cards students have to draw a shape that, when ordered, become the middle perimeter and middle area. This is deceptively difficult, as the creation of each card affects the other, in terms of ordering. It is a great way to get students revising perimeter and area topics. One answer is given, but many are possible. Get students to check each other’s...again reinforcing the topic.

Target Year 10

Number 4

Splitting a Square

Two squares are divided in different ways. What fraction of the original square are the parts? What is this as a percentage of the original square? Students will start exploring fraction/percentage equivalents as well as special awareness, such as what is half of a quarter? This can be explored further, by students making their own divisions using Splitting a Square (Make Your Own).

Target Year 6 or Year 7

Number 3

Box the Apples

This is a problem solving exercise, involving ordering groups of objects by sharing apples into boxes. Cut-outs are provided so that pupils can do the problem physically and record their answers. Some pupils may attempt this without the cut-outs. What are the constraints that having greatest to least put on the answers? Hint: Why isn’t 13, 1, 1 an answer? Once the rules are clear off you go! There are 12 solutions. You may want to challenge some pupils to find them all.

Target Year Reception or Year 1

Number 2

Hundred Square (Symbols)

The first of this set of worksheets is a made up number system using random symbols. Students should recognise the format of the numbering to rebuild the 100 grid.

This is a fantastic set of worksheets, featuring different number systems. Many real number systems are built in the same way, but use different symbols.

Hundred Square (Eastern Arabic), Hundred Square (Bengali), Hundred Square (Perso-Arabic), Hundred Square (Lao) use one system and Hundred Square (Chinese) and Hundred Square (Malayalam) use the other system. Look at other number systems, such as Suzhou numerals. How do they fit in? What about Devanagari, Gujarati, Bengali, Oriya, Telugu, Tamil, Burmese or Thai?

The Muddled Numbers worksheet looks at different scripts. Which is which, and what do they represent?

Target Year 7

Number 1

Winter Olympic Rings

Ok, so the Winter Olympics take place every 4 years, but you can still use this activity annually in the curling season. Here are two different ways of working with the equation of a circle.

In the curling question, with the centre of the concentric circles being the origin, find the equation of each of the rings. The origin is then moved about, so how does the equation change?

In the Olympic rings question, students construct three of the rings, given their equations. They then have to draw the missing two rings and find their equations.

Target Year 11


I hope you enjoy using the resources with your classes as much as we have enjoyed creating them. If you have ideas that you would like us to convert into a worksheet, please do email us and let us know.

British Congress of Mathematics Education Conference 2018

by Ian Fisher

Posted on April 12, 2018 at 10:50


blog image

The Magicicada is the genus of the 13-year and 17-year periodical cicadas. These tiny creatures spend years underground, feeding on fluids from tree roots, before emerging above ground as mature cicadas in springtime in tremendous numbers, to be active for 4 – 6 weeks. They then disappear for another 13 or 17 years.

Now I am redefining myself as a MagicIan, as similarly I emerge every 13 years for a maths conference, and I write this hastily before I have to disappear back into the basement for another 13 years of seclusion and feasting on root vegetables.

This year, BCME9 was held at Warwick University, a fine venue with many great amenities. Getting to Warwick proved problematical from the North West via the Pay and Display M6 car park. Luckily I turned down the volume of my increasingly frustrated Sat Nav companion, and listened to the copius Bruce Springsteen CDs left in the car by my wife. This only seemed to make the journey worse.

BCME (the British Congress of Mathematics Education) did a fine job of organising this mega-maths-conference, with over 350 sessions to choose from over the four days.

To start the conference Professor Sir David Spiegelhalter FRS (yes, his business card is on A4) showed us why old men have big ears.

Professor Berinderjeet Kaur from the National Institute of Education in Singapore talked on ‘How the Mastery Approach Works in Singapore. What can UK Teachers Adopt or Adapt?’

In between times I attended 10 seminars of varying quality from etudes to purgatory. I met some of the greats of the maths world: Peter Ransom, Colin Foster and Martin Flashman (who possibly has one of the best names ever and will no doubt get his own lycra suit and TV series). I was continually amazed at the dedication and quality of all the attendees for their enthusiasm, striving for continual improvement within their own sphere of maths (yes there is a pun in there).

Last and least is a mention for the quiz team I joined. We set the bar low and consistently failed to reach it. We had delusions of adequacy, and although we reached rock bottom, we continued to dig. That night there were 6 villages missing their idiots. You know who you are.

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend it to teachers of every age and experience. Let’s hope the next 13 years fly by.

The summer holidays are now well underway, which means you are currently enjoying that there are currently no uniforms to wash or any school lunches to pack. The summer break is a time for fun and relaxation, but it’s also a time when children’s academic gains that they make throughout the year are lost.

When the school doors close for the summer, many children struggle to access educational opportunities. Summer Learning Loss (or Summer Brain Drain) is the loss in academic skills and knowledge over the course of summer holidays. Extensive studies show that children, who are fluent readers and who love to read for fun during the summer holidays, may actually improve their literacy skills.  However, children with less fluent reading skills and who never read during the long break can actually regress by two months.

In mathematics, the learning loss is even greater! On average, children lose about 2.6 months’ worth of grade level equivalency in mathematical skills during their summer break! What’s more, children only need to spend 2 – 3 hours per week using educational resources during the summer break to prevent any learning loss!

Studies have found that all children, regardless of background, made similar improvement during term time. It is during the long summer break that differences occurred: children from wealthier backgrounds had better access to the kinds of activities that keep their brains active, be that summer camps, physical activity programs, formal tutoring or simply more conversation with adults. In short, summer brain drain affects all children, but unfortunately is much more apparent with children from less-wealthy families.

Summer Learning Loss Facts:

  • Equivalent of one month of overall learning is lost after summer break
  • Six weeks are spent re-learning old material to make up for summer learning loss
  • Two months of reading skills are lost over the summer
  • 2 – 3 hours a week during the summer break is need to prevent any learning loss
  • As early as Reception summer learning loss can be recognized
  • Two months of all subject focused learning is all it takes to improve specific learning skills
  • Two thirds of income based achievement gap is attributed to summer learning loss
  • It can take up to 2 months from the first day of school for a student's brain development to get back on track.

How can you prevent the learning loss?

When it comes to helping to stop the flow of learning loss, parents have a key role to play. Learning loss is much less pronounced, if there at all, in families that provide learning opportunities. As a parent, we know that you want your children to have a break from formal learning this summer but it is also important for you to understand the importance of learning and try and introduce the opportunity to keep their brains active. 

  • Reading - Reading can help build children’s literacy skills as well as vocabulary and writing skills.
  • Story Writing - Writing stories is a great way to improve children's written language skills and easily gives them a fun and imaginative activity.
  • Days Out - Exciting days out to museums, zoos, and historical sites provide great learning opportunities for children.

Action Maths

by Ian Fisher

Posted on May 18, 2016 at 09:02

Every year we try to do something a little bit special. This year we have done something a big bit special. We have been busy writing our Action Maths – that’s active maths with a pulse, the new superfood for mathematics.

 

To begin, I must go back to the last century (yes that long ago), when as a young teacher I taught maths and PE. I was sent to Blackpool (not the northern equivalent of being sent to Coventry) to the Easter Blackpool PE conference. This was when LEAs (yes remember them?) had money to train teachers. The Blackpool conference put on a whole assortment of PE courses for those who wanted to use their Easter break for betterment. That year I was on a Health Related Fitness course, a relatively new concept that involved growing like a tree and relaxing to whale music...quite progressive for the time.

 

Going back to school, I had to implement a Health Related Fitness programme into the PE department. One lesson involved the circulation of the blood through the body. Here we used four hoops for the heart and a circuit around the hall that involved picking up red bands (oxygenated blood) and swapping them for blue bands (deoxygenated blood) as we progressed around different parts of the body. We threw in some sit ups, press ups etc just for sadistic pleasure. It was the start of kinaesthetic learning. The student retention rates of the facts, compared to their level of ability, were quite impressive.

 

This concept has been gnawing away at me for years. Finally, this year, I have buckled down to produce Action Maths. This is maths that involves running around and raising the pulse whilst solving mathematical problems. I have always been a big fan of doing active maths rather than passive maths. This Action Maths creates a new superfood group of mathematics, combining the benefits of active maths with the benefits of exercise. The boring research stuff is at the bottom of the page.

 

To find the Action Maths activities use the Search tool. Click on refine by worksheet type and select Action Maths. Refine by other criteria, if needed, then click search. In this initial set there are activities for Reception up to Year 9, with the bulk covering the Primary phase. This will also support less able KS3 students.

 

The Action Maths activities are there to consolidate the skills that have been taught through the 10ticks worksheets and are a way of reinforcing concepts through a variety of physical game play.

I won’t go into great details of the Action Maths activities here; you need to look through them to see the variety on offer and which suit you. They involve circuit training, hunts, relays, chases, skittles, dancing, jigsaws, trails, time challenges etc. We are always looking for suggestions, so once you have tried some of these please send us your ideas. We can add the best to the collection.

 

Double the benefit. A benefit of many of the resources is that they can be used away from the Action Maths environment as support material for lower abilities in small groups. This is the active maths element of the course supporting kinaesthetic learners.

 

Five reasons to use 10ticks Action Maths:

 

1). Two lessons for the price of one. As curriculum time becomes tight deliver a core subject in PE time, or add extra physical activity in core time.

 

2). Action Maths games are fun for the majority of children and can build a strong sense of community in the classroom.

 

3). Being physically active can increase attention spans, reduce stress and help students to learn. Children love to move—and they need to move. Too much sitting results in decreased circulation and a subsequent decrease in concentration, whilst certain kinds of movement stimulate the release of dopamine and noradrenaline in the brain, which are important in learning. These benefits carry on throughout the day, supporting other subjects.

4). Variety is the spice of life. The more ways you introduce and consolidate mathematical concepts the greater they are retained by students, making the students more motivated in the subject.

 

5). The materials can be used as support materials for low ability, kinaesthetic learners in a one-to-one, or small group environment. This active learning style has been shown to be an effective way of increasing knowledge retention.

 

Research: The combined benefits.

1).           Exercise              

It has been shown that after exercise people learn vocabulary 20% faster. Exercise improves short-term memory, reaction time and creativity. It increases attention span, coordination and complex thinking. 30% extra blood flow, oxygen and glucose to the brain improves learning ability.

According to Dr. John Ratey, physical fitness is like “Miracle-Gro” for the brain.   “I cannot underestimate how important regular exercise is in improving the function and performance of the brain,” he writes.  Exercise stimulates the brain to produce extra BDNF (brain-derived-neurotropic factor)  which is used to enhance the development of new neurons (and their connections).

Simply put, being physically active can help students improve attention spans, reduce stress and help students learn (Jones, 2012).

2).           Active maths

Research shows that pupils learn more when they are involved in active learning. This is because the emphasis is placed on higher order thinking skills such as analysis, synthesis and evaluation.

 

Further research has shown that pupils retain 90% of what they say and do. Compare this with the fact that pupils retain just 10% of what they read and 20% of what they hear and you will start to understand why active learning is so important (Source: E.Dale, 1969).

Monty Hall's a Goat

by Ian Fisher

Posted on April 20, 2016 at 13:06

Every summer we update the worksheets and website with the work we have done over the past 12 months. This gives me time for reflection on the year and to look back at our achievements.

 

Writing for 10ticks is extremely rewarding; there are no constraints on what we do. We do it because we love it. We do it because we know it will make your life easier and motivate your students into finding mathematics fascinating. We can put time and effort into crafting a successful worksheet for the benefit of time starved teachers. In this blog I will look over some of the worksheet ideas produced for our new edition. 

 

As a quick digression, the worksheet seems to have become an unpopular bedfellow for the teacher over the last decade. It has been given bad press because of the hastily prepared sheet of work, possibly hand written, with reams of questions and no progression, photocopied and given out to a class as a last minute homework, and just for the sake of tick-boxing the homework given box. I have heard of head teachers banning the use of worksheets in their schools. Should we now call our worksheets a digital maths resource, so that we are not tagged with the label? This short-sightedness is the equivalent of saying, “ I have seen a bad text book, so we will not use text books in our school”. Ludicrous.

 

Yes, I believe practice is an important element to learning. Our consolidation worksheets have sets of questions to allow time for this, along with structured, graduated progressions. More able pupils may work on odd numbers, or down columns, and those that need consolidation can work through more. The worksheets have been likened to a lesson plan in their progression. Our texts are successful because of this .... but there is much, much more to 10ticks than just consolidation questions. Variety is just as important. That is why we have games, puzzles, investigations, Action Maths, Calculated Colourings etc, all linked to specific mathematical concepts, so the teacher can focus on delivering a skill in a variety of ways. It has been shown that this wide variety of delivery mechanisms actually helps teacher development by thinking about pedagogy.  I could go on, but a short digression has now become a long rant, so enough.

 

This year we have added over 270 worksheets to the 10ticks collection and I want to highlight one or two of my favourites. We do have a new Search tool that will help you navigate through this vast, rich resource.

 

As a side note, for those of you referencing 10ticks into schemes of work, use the comment field, as this doesn’t change from year to year. Page numbers and Years will, depending on the whim of the government at the time.

 

Frequency Trees (search M16.162 then onwards) is a brand new area. We have developed this from scratch. It is a graduated series of worksheets, linking frequency trees with two way tables and probabilities. The progressions are easy to follow, allowing for instant student success.

 

The Monty Hall Problem (search M16.113) is a very famous problem that can be solved easily by running a trial with the whole class. Will you win a car or a goat?

 

Roman Numeral Matchstick Puzzles (search M16.64) is a delightful page of puzzles that involve moving matchsticks around to solve questions in Roman numerals format. Great fun.

The last question of the sheet, Sec D 6)., is obviously a trick question,  which can be answered gleefully by spinning the sheet around 180 degrees.

 

BIDMAS Snake (search M16.78) is a question that hit the news this year. It is a question that was given to third graders (8 year olds) in Bao Loc, Vietnam. See how your class fares.

 

There is alot of introductory algebra in the update. Stars and Circles (Algebra) (search M16.253) is a typical start to algebra, replacing a star and circle with numbers to solve the questions. Also look at Balancing Shapes (search M16.86) for a starter to solving equations.  Algebraic Expression Diagrams (search M16.95) is a visualisation method for algebra. It is consistent with the way multiplication is taught using grids.

 

Algebraic Pyramids (starting Algebra) (search M16.255) looks at number pyramids, and finding generalisations for different pyramid sizes.  We do this by using polygon shapes, rather than numbers, to see how many of each polygon appear in the top block. You should find a generalisation for the 3-block base, 4-block base and 5-block base, before guessing what it will be for a 6-block base. To find a link between the generalisations it may be wise to cover Pascal’s triangle immediately before this topic.

 

 

OK, I could go on, but won’t. There is a plethora of enrichment material this year:  puzzles, games and investigations, so go and explore these new materials. My apologies to those worksheets that didn’t get a mention by name - I hope you weren’t offended.

What is Summer Learning Loss?

Summer is an ideal time for students of all ages to strengthen their academic skills while still having plenty of time left over for summer activities.

When the school doors close for the summer, many children struggle to access educational opportunities. Summer Brain Drain is another term for learning loss and is the loss in academic skills and knowledge over the course of summer holidays. On average, children lose about 2.6 months’ worth of grade level equivalency in mathematical skills during their summer break! What’s more, children only need to spend 2 – 3 hours per week using educational resources during the summer break to prevent any learning loss!

It is during the long summer break that differences occurred: children from wealthier backgrounds had better access to the kinds of activities that keep their brains active, be that summer camps, physical activity programs, formal tutoring or simply more conversation with adults. In short, summer brain drain affects all children, but unfortunately is much more apparent with children from less-wealthy families.

Summer Learning Loss Facts:

  • Equivalent of one month of overall learning is lost after summer break
  • Six weeks are spent re-learning old material to make up for summer learning loss
  • Two months of reading skills are lost over the summer
  • 2 – 3 hours a week during the summer break is need to prevent any learning loss

How can you prevent the learning loss?

When it comes to helping to stop the flow of learning loss, parents have a key role to play. Learning loss is much less pronounced, if there at all, in families that provide learning opportunities. As a parent, we know that you want your children to have a break from formal learning this summer but it is also important for you to understand the importance of learning and try and introduce the opportunity to keep their brains active. Thanks to the 10ticks Home Learning System, the power to stop Summer Learning Loss is literally at your fingertips.

Further GCSE Reforms to be Introduced to "set every child up for life"

by 10ticks

Posted on June 17, 2015 at 12:42


blog image

Education Secretary Nicky Morgan will insist that all pupils study the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects up until the age of 16.  At present, only 39 per cent do - itself up from 22 per cent when the EBacc measure was first introduced in 2010 by her predecessor Michael Gove. This means that every pupil in Secondary School will have to study the five core academic subjects; English, maths, science, languages and geography or history up to GCSE level as a result of radical reforms.

This policy outlined by Nicky Morgan is set to be introduced alongside the new GCSE grading system being introduced for first teaching this September, which replaces the A to G system with a new nine-to-one numbered scale. The new grading system has been designed to reveal the differences between candidates at the top end. Currently, candidates are expected to achieve a C to attain a "good pass", although grades below this are still officially considered passes.
Teachers’ leaders will argue the plan on studying the EBacc subjects is too prescriptive - and that not every pupil is suited to such a demanding academic diet.
Christine Blower, general secretary of the National Union of Teachers, said last night that Ms Morgan had reversed the previous government policy of allowing schools to decide which pupils to put in for the EBacc “with just one speech” and “without the least consultation”.
She said the new policy would “cause dismay amongst parents”, adding: “Parents, like teachers want a broad and balanced curriculum for their children”.
However, Ms Morgan states her plans are a key element of the Government’s commitment to social justice. “We want every single person in the country to have access to the best opportunities Britain has to offer - starting with an excellent education,” she said.
In addition, she will announce the appointment of school behavioural expert Tom Bennett to draw up plans for training teachers how to tackle low-level disruption in the classroom - which, education standards watchdog Ofsted estimates, is losing pupils up to an hour of learning a day.
The inspectorate found that children were having a significant impact on the learning of others by swinging on chairs, playing on mobile phones, making silly comments to get attention and passing notes around in class.

Schools that ban mobile phones see better academic results

by 10ticks

Posted on May 22, 2015 at 12:46


blog image

Banning mobile phones from schools saves one week's worth of learning per pupil over an academic year, it has been claimed.

According to new research by Louis-Philippe Beland and Richard Murphy, published by the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics, the effect of banning mobile phones from school premises adds up to the equivalent of an extra week’s schooling over a pupil’s academic year, according to research schools which banned the devices saw their 16-year-olds' test performance improve by 6.4%.

Mobile phone usage in Schools has only become a problem within the last 15 years. In a survey conducted in 2001, no school banned mobiles. By 2007, this had risen to 50%, and by 2012 some 98% of schools had opted to restrict them. In the UK, more than 90% of teenagers own a mobile phone; in the US, just under three quarters have one. The prevalence of the devices poses problems for head teachers, whose attitude towards the technology has hardened as it has become ubiquitous.

However, some schools are starting to allow limited use of the devices. New York mayor Bill de Blasio has lifted a 10-year ban on phones on school premises, with the city’s chancellor of schools stating that it would reduce inequality.

The study was run in schools in Birmingham, London, Leicester and Manchester before and after bans.

GCSE maths papers to be changed amid concerns over difficulty

by 10ticks

Posted on May 22, 2015 at 12:45


blog image

Exam boards have been ordered to change new GCSE maths papers just a few months before students are due to study them, amid concerns they are too tough.

There is a "significant risk" that assessments drawn up by three awarding bodies will be too difficult for the full range of pupils' abilities, according to research by Ofqual. Ofqual analysed the results of 4,000 mock tests of sample papers for GCSEs due to be studied in schools next term and found three of the four main exam boards had made their papers too hard for the broad spread of candidates, while the fourth, AQA, has been ordered to make its papers more "challenging". 

New maths GCSEs are scheduled to be introduced to schools and colleges from this September as part of the major education overhaul started by the previous government, to toughen up the qualifications. Former education secretary Michael Gove wanted the courses to include more challenging content, to better prepare students for studying A-levels.

As part of the research, thousands of students were asked to sit new sample maths papers. The study found average marks were very low compared with what would be expected in a real GCSE exam – even for students from the best-performing schools.

Overall, the level of difficulty in the sample papers was higher than in current GCSE papers. This is in line with the government’s demands for a more rigorous curriculum. The research found, however, that the higher-tier papers from WJEC Eduqas and Pearson were so difficult that the top grade was often no more than 50%.

"There is a significant risk that all but AQA's assessments will be too difficult for the full range of ability for the cohort for which the qualification is intended," Ofqual's report concludes. This is likely to prevent the reliable grading of students. "The additional challenge will be beneficial for the most able students but the assessments also need to support a positive experience for the rest of the cohort so as to ensure that all students become more confident and competent as mathematicians."

Should Pupils be allowed to use Google when sitting GCSE and A-level exams?

by 10ticks

Posted on April 30, 2015 at 12:48


blog image

Pupils should be allowed to use Google when sitting GCSE and A-level exams to adapt to the way they learn, according to Mark Dawe, the OCR exam board chief executive.

Introducing tools like Google or calculators will help teachers assess the way students draw on information and apply it to their learning. Mark said everyone has Google available to them and students will only have a limited amount of time to conduct online searches anyway.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Mr Dawe said: “Everyone has a computer available to solve a problem but it’s then about how they interpret the results. We have tools, like Google, why would you exclude those from students’ learning?"

“Surely when they learn in the classroom, everyone uses Google if there is a question. It is more about understanding what results you’re seeing rather than keeping all of that knowledge in your head because that’s not how the modern world works.”

He compared the idea of introducing Google to examinations to the old-age debate about whether to have books available during a test. He said: “In reality you didn’t have too much time [to consult the book] and you had to learn it anyway.”

Despite his enthusiasm about the introduction of technology during examinations, he said this reality was at least a decade away in the UK. He added: “It is important that parents and teachers understand and believe this is fair. The government would need to ensure they have the right regulation to ensure the quality of standards are maintained.”

Should maths be taught from state-approved textbooks?

by 10ticks

Posted on February 24, 2015 at 12:51


blog image

Is England moving closer to having pupils taught maths through “state-approved” textbooks, modelled on those used in China and Singapore? That is the fear among some attendees of a meeting earlier this month, when the DfE told education publishers it wanted to see the introduction of a “quality framework” against which maths textbooks could be assessed.

One version of what this might look like has already been devised by the government-funded National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching ofMathematics. Now, under pressure from ministers, publishing organisations are working on their own version.

The move is being driven by Nick Gibb, the traditionalist schools minister running curriculum policy, following a paper published last November by Tim Oates, head of research at the exam body Cambridge Assessment. Oates argued that the quality of England’s textbooks has declined since the 1970s. Favourably citing Singapore, where textbooks are “state-approved”, he seemed to advocate such a structure here, saying publishers would have to raise their game to fulfil government expectations of the quality of their materials.

Ministers, who have set up a network of “maths hubs” around England which are welcoming visiting teachers from China, are impressed by textbooks used in the Far East.

Publishers hope that a voluntary code will assuage Gibb, who wants English schools to match the Pacific Rim in global education league tables. But the threat of a formal government approval process for maths textbooks still also seems to be around in the background.
