Teaching of calculation in primary schools

15 Apr 2002 Ofsted

Ref: 461

In the spring and summer terms of 2001, inspectors gave particular attention in 68 schools to three important themes in primary mathematics: progression from mental to written calculation from Year 1 to Year 6; the solving of word problems; and the use of calculators in Years 5 and 6. This paper draws upon these visits, as well as on evidence from the visits to the other schools in the national sample.
