What is RME?
Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) builds deep, long-term mathematical understanding by starting from contexts that students can make sense of.
In this section, we introduce RME by explaining:
- the basics of an RME approach to teaching mathematics.
- research supporting RME as an effective teaching practice
- why RME classrooms look and behave in distinctive ways
- how we’ve tailored our materials for your classroom.
You can find out more about introducing RME strategies into your classroom in our Getting Started section.
Read more about researching your own practice as an RME teacher, and the theory and research behind RME on our Going Further pages.
