Progression, using the same language and techniques, means that children are able easily to build on previous classes' teaching and learning, especially in number work. Key aspects of Maths Makes Sense such as the teaching of negative numbers, giving change, using a ruler to draw lines and shapes, have increased confidence in maths and children are more willing to use what they know to tackle problems. * Maxine Gray, Maths Co-ordinator, Wroxall Primary School *
Using Maths Makes Sense means more and more children are able to access the maths curriculum, especially the less able. Having the concrete examples (cups) early on, they are able to visualise and make connections much more easily than with previous schemes. * Lyn Parkes, Maths Co-ordinator, St. John Primary School *
