### Maths No Problem

**This year, we are introducing the Maths – No Problem! scheme of work. The **syllabus is based on the model developed in Singapore, which has been tested and refined over the last 30 years.

- Founded on ideas developed by theorists such as Piaget and Bruner
- Co-authored by a world-renowned Singapore maths expert
- Fully aligned to the 2014 English national curriculum
- Uses the spiral approach that builds up mathematical concepts, developing a deep, long-term and adaptable understanding of maths, which means teachers don’t need to revisit topics
- Provides mathematical fluency without the need for rote learning
- The
*only*textbook on the DfE’s list of recommended textbooks for schools on the mastery programme

Maths – No Problem! believes that every child can master maths. The Department for Education’s (DfE) expert panel judged that the Maths – No Problem! textbooks met the core criteria for a high-quality textbook to support teaching for mastery. In fact, it is currently the *only* textbook on the DfE’s list of recommended textbooks for schools on the mastery programme.
