SMILE Mathematics Networks
The 2001 SMILE Network reflects the Mathematics National Curriculum 2000 and the Key Stage 3 Framework for Teaching Mathematics.
The Network is intended to assist teachers in planning and recording a scheme of work for each student according to their mathematical needs.
The Network can be used as a formative record of the students' progress throughout Key Stages 3 and 4 and as an aid to summative teacher assessment at the end of Key Stage 3 because the SMILE activities are arranged to reflect the sections of the Programme of Study.
A student's Network provides evidence of the extent to which the Programme of Study has been covered. The final decision about which Level description best fits the student should be made in the light of work satisfactorily completed and understood and the teacher's knowledge of the student's mathematical ability. The Networks cover levels 1 to 5, 4 to 7 and 6 to EP.
