aim - achievement in maths - supported by the GE Foundation


The intention of the following document is to outline the main features of a unit of work which I recently developed and put to use as an introduction to Functional Mathematics with one of my own Year 11 classes.

Briefly, it will comprise the following:


  • A short overview of the task and how the idea was developed.
  • A brief outline of the sequence of lessons planned for this class.
  • The materials used and developed in class.
  • Some notes on aspects of this idea which might be altered depending on the group it is to be put to, or the desired learning outcomes.
  • Some further development suggestions from colleagues who I have shared this idea with.
