Mathematics education expert, Rebecca Hanson FRSA, has developed training for primary teachers which is enabling them to successfully teach every concept on the new primary maths curriculum to all their pupils.

The training is based on Montessori teaching and Cuisenaire but the teaching strategies Rebecca Hanson recommends are much simpler to understand and don't require teachers to do anything differently - just to explain what they already do more clearly with simple representations.

Rebecca is calling on RSA Fellows to support her project, Authentic Maths, with the aim to train others and catalyse the brilliance of every maths primary teacher and child across England.

The training I provide is unique as the new curriculum requires that many difficult concepts are taught to very young children and there is no precedent for this being successfully achieved on a large scale.
