50 Maths Lessons for More Able Learners is a new series of books
that will provide a range of standalone activities covering the objectives
for a two-year span but at a level more challenging to
the more able learner. Each lesson plan will focus on one specific
aspect of maths, will provide a range of group or independent activities
and will be accompanied by a photocopiable sheet.

The activities should be planned and written in such a way that the
material can easily be slipped into existing planning, used inisolation
to extend understanding and can be handed by the teach
er to the teaching assistant with little preparation by each.

Each title will address the principles of inclusion for more ablepupils
identified in Excellence and Enjoyment: Learning and Teac
hing in the Primary Years, DfES 2004). These include:

- Setting suitable learning challenges
- Responding to children's diverse learning need

To do this effectively for more able children requires certain access
strategies such as:

- Accelerating progress through learning objectives
- Providing tasks that are more open-ended or extended in time and
- Providing opportunities to apply learning objectives in less
miliar contexts.

In addition, the lessons will be split between the seven strands
of mathematics, identified by the National Strategy in the Draft
Framework for Teaching Mathematics (Consultation document, DfES,
April 2006).

The seven strands include:

- Use and apply maths
- Count, compare and order numbers, and describe relationships btween
- Secure knowledge of number facts which can be recalled quickland
used appropriately
- Calculate efficiently and accurately
- Position and transform shapes, recognising and using their prerties
to visualise and construct
- Measure accurately using appropriate units, interpret and comre
- Process, present and interpret data to pose and answer questis.
