The Key Elements of Big Maths
Big Maths embraces the logical nature of maths, translating it into simple steps and Progress Drives. There is great detail built into the system which develops teacher subject knowledge and expertise as well as promoting organisation and consistency across school.
Big Maths Beat That! Challenges Are Free!
Big Maths Beat That! is the formative assessment framework of Big Maths which allows teachers to identify whether their pupils are at the expected standard for their Basic Skills and wider mathematical knowledge.
Since 2014, schools have been bombarded with promises and marketing for a number of systems that claim to be the solution for school assessment needs. An increasing number of schools are contacting us for help with their maths assessments because they have been provided with either re-structured curriculum statements or a system which has insufficient formative assessment.
The development of Big Maths has taken more than 7 years and cost over £1,000,000. The research and development of Big Maths had a simple, key objective: to provide a robust, progressive and comprehensive maths pedagogy with no gaps for learners to fall through.
We feel we have achieved it.
A school or teacher that implements Beat That! will identify any gaps in knowledge through the weekly challenges. Big Maths provides the pedagogy and structured approach to inform next steps in teaching and learning.
That is why we have decided to make the Big Maths Beat That! Challenges free to download for any school.
