A Unique approach to Maths for Low Attainers that works!

"Can we do fractions, decimals and percentages again?"
The cartoons have made such a difference to this topic with the lower sets.  (GB: Newbury)

Barbara and Andy developed the Y7 & Y8 mainstream courses in their classrooms. When these two texts seemed to have most of the 'bugs' ironed out, Barbara started writing a Y7 text for low attainers.

BUT, her students DID NOT WANT a special text written for them. They demanded to do the same work as everyone else. "Why can't you write the book that the others use so that we can understand it and work from it?" She promised to think about it over the weekend !!!

On the Monday, Barbara and her students started to use the mainstream Y7 text. When they couldn't cope with a problem (which was very often) the class would worry at the problem, until they could work out why they couldn't do it. With their help, the problem was rewritten. Where needed, EXTRA material was added.

Y7 Kooldood and Y8 Chyps were developed over 5 years. One of the bottom sets that contributed to their development was a set of 22 which contained eight very hyperative students. This turned out to be the best group when it came to clarifying and/or improving Chyps. They also responded to and enjoyed being challenged.
