Maths Makes Sense has ensured teachers' professional knowledge is secure and appropriate. It has allowed staff to respond to differentiated needs in the classroom creatively and immediately. It has ensured high expectations and understanding of children's knowledge. The planning is simple and effective and the pace of lessons has increased. * Iain George, Headteacher, Springfield Primary School *
Maths Makes Sense has increased teachers' expectations of what the National Curriculum perceives children to be able to do. Our pupils work out fractions of a quantity with ease and confidence. They are well versed in the equivalence of decimals and fractions. The levels and expectations of the geometry work in the pupils' books reflect more towards the expectations you would witness in a secondary school, rather than a primary school. * Heidi McGinty, Victoria College Prep School *
