Durham Shared Maths Project: evaluation report and executive summary - July 2015
Published in July 2015, this report details the findings of the Durham University Shared Maths intervention project on pupils from 82 primary schools across four local authorities. The intervention was a cross-age peer tutoring, developed at Durham University, where older pupils (Year 5/Year 6) work with younger pupils (Year 3/Year 4) to discuss and work through maths problems using a structured approach. The intervention was delivered by teachers, with training and support from a Local Co-ordinator and participating pupils spent 20 minutes each week using the approach, for two blocks of 16 weeks over consecutive years.
