Literacy in Maths – clarity of instructions

February 10, 2016

Later on in February, we have a whole school reading day and, in maths, we’ve decided to go for a focus on the importance of written instructions. This ties nicely with decision maths and algorithms.

I’ve typed up what I’ve planned for the faculty (with year 8 students) and have put it here for you to see too. It’s based on getting students to write the instructions for making a sandwich and also for playing noughts and crosses.
