WHAT IS FLUENCY?

WHAT IS VARIED APPLICATION?

WHAT IS INTELLIGENT QUESTIONING?

WHAT IS FLUENCY?

FLUENCY is the foundation of understanding allowing pupils to develop their sense of maths across all areas of the curriculum. A growing awareness of a learning objective and how it can be applied across different contexts builds confidence with using maths fluently…

WHAT IS VARIED APPLICATION?

VARIED APPLICATION provides an opportunity for pupils to transfer their FLUENCY skills and understanding across other areas of the curriculum. Varied Application questions extend the curriculum and mathematical minds…

WHAT IS INTELLIGENT QUESTIONING?

INTELLIGENT QUESTIONING offers the ultimate challenge. Pupils will need to master the FLUENCY & VARIED APPLICATION first. A variety of problem solving tasks await to test the deepest levels of understanding…

Learning Zone 1: FLUENCY, VARIED APPLICATION & INTELLIGENT QUESTIONING are grouped together on one easy-to-use resource sheet, which can be displayed on the classroom board or printed out if preferred. These should be issued daily allowing pupils to develop their knowledge, understanding & confidence throughout the mission. This also provides continuous opportunity for intervention and assessment. Award pupils with mission credits for correct answers and solutions to questions. Pupils record the mission credits awarded in the Pupil Mission Credit Record below, which can be used in-line with any school or department reward system.

Pupils maintain their Mission Record collecting credits from mission-to-mission building their total towards the next MyMiniMaths Mission Rank…

###### Learning Zone 2

miniMATHS PACKS

EACH CORRECT ANSWER ON THE mini-MATHS LEARNING ZONE 2 COLLECTS 1 MISSION CREDIT

READY MADE mini-MATHS PACKS CONTAINING A SHORT 5-10 MINUTE TASK FOR PUPILS TO COMPLETE IN PREPARATION FOR THE FOLLOWING DAY DEVELOPING UNDERSTANDING & CONFIDENCE THROUGHOUT THEIR 5 DAY MISSION. ALL PACKS CONTAIN 4 COPIES OF THE mini-MATHS TASKS PER PAGE FOR QUICK & EASY RESOURCING.

THE mini-MATHS PACKS ARE PERFECT FOR SUPPORTING CLASSWORK, HOME LEARNING, INTERVENTION & REGISTRATION TIMES…

Learning Zone 2 provides a 5 day mini-MATHS pack supporting learning in the classroom. Each day’s mini task is issued for pupils to complete independently in preparation for the following day. Whole class marking provides quick, easy and effective daily assessment using a quick show of hands to gauge levels of understanding and provide the required intervention to the areas of development for groups of children or to individuals. Regular and consistent intervention supports gaps in understanding and application and is actioned with the next day’s mini-MATHS task. The mini-MATHS pack is delivered throughout the week to build pupil understanding and confidence.

WHAT ARE MYMINIMATHS BASE COLOURS?

A range of base colours are available for each mission’s learning objective…

Each base colour is differentiated against the expectations of the National Curriculum. Base colours are colour coded for easy identification. The colour coding also allows for teachers to discretely issue tasks above and below the current year group to offer opportunities in-line with each pupil’s level of ability and understanding.

The table below outlines the expectation of each base colour against the National Curriculum…

GREEN BASE is written in-line with the Year 3 National Curriculum.

PURPLE BASE is written in-line with the Year 4 National Curriculum.

BLUE BASE is written in-line with the Year 5 National Curriculum.

RED BASE is written in-line with the Year 6 National Curriculum.

ORANGE BASE is written in-line with the lower end of the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum targeting Year 7.
