Learning and Teaching for Mathematical Literacy

Supporting materials – 11C

Bowland Maths


Bowland Maths aims to make maths engaging and relevant to pupils aged 11-14, with a focus on developing thinking, reasoning and problem-solving skills. In these materials, the maths emerges naturally as pupils tackle problems set in a rich mixture of real-life and fantasy situations.

The materials include 26 'case studies' – extended mathematical investigations each supporting 3-5 mathematics lessons, a collection of shorter tasks designed to help teachers assess problem-solving skills and a series of video-led professional development modules.
