The new GCSE (9-1) contains what many see as more demanding and challenging content and so it is becoming ever more important to build the confidence of students who find maths concepts difficult to understand. The downloadable CPD toolkit has been designed by experts in helping develop the recognition of key mathematical concepts through the transition of Concrete – Pictorial – Abstract  understanding. As a result, teachers will be able to deliver lessons focused on helping create a mathematical foundation through the use of the teaching resources, classroom posters and worksheets.
