Understanding and addressing low attainment in lower secondary mathematics in England

Evidence continues to highlight the problem of low attainment in lower secondary mathematics I n England and elsewhere. In this seminar, I will present the results from the Investigating Mathematical Attainment and Progress (IMAP) project, which focused on low attaining students aged 14 in England. Drawing on the results of a specially designed test, analysis of the National Pupil Database and interviews with students and teachers, I will discuss what these students understand about mathematics. Then, drawing on a wider systematic review and secondary meta-analysis, I will consider what teaching strategies and other approaches could be used to raise the attainment of these students.
