Our materials are designed to support students in developing their initial informal understanding of a context into the formal mathematics that we all recognise.

Teachers have a special guiding role in this process.

On these pages, we begin by asking you to watch a video of an experienced RME teacher.

We unpack some of the features of the lesson, and then zoom in on the details:

How do RME teachers support students’ mathematising?

How can they foster the kind of classroom culture that supports deep discussion?

These pages provide you with pointers about where to start and offer multiple techniques to try out in your classroom.


Fitting our materials into your school year

In organising your school’s schemes of work, you may want to know how our materials are organised and how they will fit into England’s National Curriculum.
