Maths Through Sport for Secondary Education
The Aspire Active Learning programme has been developed to contain distinct active learning strategies which help boost your students maths levels through physical activity and sport.
Active learning is all about discovering, processing and applying. Research shows that pupils learn more when they are involved in Active Learning.
When doing active learning, emphasis is placed on higher order thinking skills such as analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
Further research has shown that students retain 90% of what they say and do. Compare this with the fact that students retain just 10% of what they read and 20% of what they hear and you will start to understand why active learning is so important (source: E.Dale, 1969).
Offering an alternative learning environment to the classroom, the programme has been developed over a 2 year period with expert consultancy from maths leaders at some of the leading schools in the West Midlands. The process has included pilot studies, testing and focus groups toensure that your pupilsimprove as a result of the programme.
Active Learning is used by a lot of schools as a valuable second wave intervention strategy. It is developed to fit alongside the National Strategies document for levels 2 to 5 in maths, with each level been split into 6 areas.
Active Learning has proved to be effective in engaging those students who under achieve with maths at various schools across the region. The results speak for themselves! Last year 86% of students increased their SATS score by at least 1 sub level as a result of the Active Learning programme.
Numerous settings are taking advantage of this unique programme.
