Self and Peer Assessment of Mathematical Processes
Onion, Alice; Javaheri, Elnaz
Mathematics Teaching, n224 p30-32 Sep 2011
This article explores using Bowland assessment tasks and Nuffield Applying Mathematical Processes (AMP) activities as part of a scheme of work. The Bowland tasks and Nuffield AMP activities are designed to develop students' mathematical thinking; they are focused on key processes. Unfamiliar demands are made on the students and they are challenged to think about their own approaches to solving problems. This innovative work was done with a lower set Year 8--set 4 out of 6--over the course of just over a term.
