Maths Makes Sense (MMS)



Maths Makes Sense identifies the key concepts children need to learn to achieve success in Maths.


These are known as the '10 Big Ideas' 


  • addition

  • subtraction

  • equals

  • multiplication

  • division

  • denomination

  • ratio

  • infinity

  • the symbols speak to you

  • the language tells you the answer.


Children are taught these concepts consistently so that their understanding grows over time and they are able to apply Maths successfully to real life examples.



Everything the children learn at each stage, paves the way for what comes next.
