Example text

Teachers can assure their pupils that ‘wrong’ answers are the interesting answers because they reveal what the teacher needs to know. If pupils always get all the answers right then the work is probably too easy for them. This is not the way that pupils usually think. In fact, they usually assume that if they get an answer wrong that they cannot ‘do’ mathematics, rather than realizing that they need to put in more effort or think more widely. Teachers can help dispel this notion by discussing it with their pupils.

Because it’s the biggest number, umm the one that’s … use the whole number that you can get under 5. Right, what would happen then if there was a number bigger than 5 there? What … It wouldn’t be, it wouldn’t be dividing by 5, umm dividing by 10. I’m going to change that to a three (changes the 5 on the board to 3) so now if I have a number and divide it by 3 what’s the biggest remainder I’m likely to get? 2. Why? Because if you go on 4s it would be on the 5 times table. If I go on 4 it would be the 5 times table … a bit more … And … (shakes his head) I don’t know.

I could also have introduced a ‘mathematician’s way of explaining’ but that would have been too far outside their own discourse and I felt would have reinforced any feeling they had that they could not ‘do maths’. Assessing the best from a selection given by their peers gave the pupils models that they could see it was possible to aspire to, reinforcing a belief that they could use mathematical language with a bit of extra effort.
