Researchers at the National Institute and inspectors at the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham have come together to improve standards of mathematics among primary school pupils of all levels of ability. The partnership has been developing teaching materials and teaching methods based on successful practice observed in primary schools in Switzerland as part of the Improving Primary Mathematics (IPM) project. In 2001, more than 18,000 pupils in over 60 schools were using the materials and teaching methods developed by the project.

You can order the materials for Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 now, with Years 5 and 6 following in 2003.

All materials are available from NBM, Tel:+44(0)1752 202340.
