Mathsticks resources aim to make maths meaningful and have been trialled, adapted, tested and retested with children in the classroom. They are based on the need for children to be fully involved in their learning; to have fun, and to enjoy and achieve while developing their mathematical skills. The resources are the result of practical experience, research and the firm belief that effective mathematical learning is best achieved through: • The use and application of mathematics. • High quality talk within mathematics. • Purposeful and effective group work. • Clear and meaningful use of oral and mental work.
