Click here to view and contribute! (Simply open up one of the six areas of Maths documents, then click an objective and open the link)

The idea: To build a collaborative platform to support teachers in planning for the 2014 National Curriculum for Mathematics by sharing ideas and resources that create an inspiring and engaging curriculum for children.

How it works: All the individual end of year objectives from the 2014 National Curriculum for Mathematics have been split up into progression maps. This in itself supports planning for differentiation. However, the purpose of the project is that each objective is linked to a separate document that acts as a repository of ideas and resources which can be used, and most importantly, added to.

Will it work? The only way the project will work is if people that read this post actively participate in sharing ideas and resources. Imagine a Year 1 teacher adding hands on activities to a Year 2 or 3 objective (her high ability group). A Year 5 teacher might use one of those ideas with his lower ability group. And so on.

How can I help? Contribute! Please do not just view and use the document. Please do not think you do not have anything worth sharing. It does not matter how small your idea or resource is, someone else may find it amazing! It may even generate other ideas. Feel free to leave your contact details (e.g. Twitter name) after each contribution. If you have a blog, please copy and paste this post as a new post on your site, that way as wide an audience as possible can be reached and therefore more ideas and resources can potentially be shared! If you use social media such as Twitter, please share any contributions with your followers using the #crowdsourcedmaths hashtag.

It’s a brilliant idea and will only work if we all contribute!
