Bowland Before Polishing After Polishing Pupils behaviour prior to this project Reluctance to talk with each other about their

maths Few skills of working as a pair(Would not sit with girls etc) Knew only one way to tackle a problem Belief that there was a unique answer to a question and a refusal to accept other peoples answers Little desire to think Pupils behaviour prior to this project

I am sick and tired of spoon feeding my students. They can not think ! Spoon fed on a diet of traditional maths teaching Changes in students 1. Ready to discuss their mathematics 2. Feeling more autonomous in the class 3. Willing to challenge their learning and

ideas 4. Having more productive comments about their own work why and how the results happened? Students enjoyed maths more Students Felt more confident Students ability to think in process lessons could have transfered to content lessons

Students learn from each other in the lessons more than teachers Students have been experiencing success in process lessons, and have taken that feeling to their content lessons A bonus atmosphere in non project lessons ..... What we learnt

Be patient How to make connections (see the Maths) Where to now! 1. Writing a SOWs based on the activities.(Group worthy ) 2. All abilities
