Teachers work in collaborative teams to plan maths units that cater for the needs of all students. The teachers gather data and evidence to establish what the students know and can do and to check any misunderstandings and gaps in their knowledge. From this evidence, teachers are able to differentiate the lessons to ensure each student is being challenged enough to help them progress to the nest level of learning.
