    • Consider effective assessment of mathematics in relation to a curriculum without levels
    • Identify structures for activities which will facilitate high quality formative assessment and surface misconceptions
    • Explore models for making mathematics meaningful, authentic and relevant
    • Consider the mathematical skills that pupils will need to be equipped with in order to function effectively in their future lives and the contexts for learning within which those skills might be developed.
