Teachers using the Maths — No Problem! textbooks will be familiar with the way that each lesson is divided into distinct parts, including an anchor task, guided practice, and independent practice. This approach, which has been successfully tried and tested in Singapore, provides pupils with a consistent lesson format that he or she is familiar with, regardless of their year group or who is taking the class.
We asked series consultant Dr. Yeap Ban Har to explain the features of a well-structured maths lesson, as well as his advice on assessing pupils in class and differentiating a task for advanced learners. We hope you enjoy these short videos and find them useful.
