- resource tool – shows what is to be taught at KS3 with exemplifications, teaching ideas and videos for teachers
- glossary – meanings of mathematical words
- progression maps for KS3 – show a possible teaching content plan for years 7, 8 and 9 in word and pdf formats
- guidance on marking and feedback – maintaining a correct balance
- teaching for mastery – questions, tasks and activities to support assessment in KS3
- Secondary Mathematics Teaching for Mastery – Some themes and key principles
- Secondary Mastery – some great professional development materials
