Teaching mixed ability groups: maths (webinar)

There is a substantial body of evidence that suggest that achievement of all students in maths is improved in heterogeneous teaching environments. This webinar will explore a range of maths activities designed to make work both accessible and challenging. We will look at how to plan to ensure that everyone can grasp essential maths concepts and move towards a greater depth of understanding.
