At Mylor we use a range of strategies that identify students mathematical understandings and misconceptions. This information is then used to inform the explicit teaching required. By identifying students misconceptions early we are able to ensure they have a strong understanding of all mathematical concepts and can apply this knowledge to real life situations. We value students ability to problem solve and reason in Mathematics, whilst balancing this with their understanding and fluency. Students are encouraged to record their thinking and explain their understandings to others.
