Maths support for teachers

Hamilton's reference and advice materials for teaching maths include resources that help teachers ensure they are building the knowledge and skills necessary for children to follow the National Curriculum for maths in England. The monitoring templates below will help you track key maths progress through each year.

Professor Ruth Merttens also runs maths pedagogy training seminars across the country each year. Look out for details of these on our homepage and in our newsletter. You can find video recordings of some of these seminars on the main 'Teacher Support' landing page.

To run your own staff meeting on 'Mastery in Maths', see the 'Staff Meetings: school-wide maths training' page.
