A framework for Cambridge Mathematics


The Framework will:

  • be a map of the full domain of mathematical knowledge from pre-school to the end of the upper secondary phase of education and training arrangements
  • be loosely age-related and based on progressions in organising concepts and principles
  • be the basis for different curriculum pathways which will flesh out a more detailed hierarchy
  • be a basis for deriving standards
  • be illustrated by indicative content and exemplar performances
  • be evidenced both from the study of a range of mathematics curricula and mathematics assessments, and from a theoretical perspective of conceptual progression
  • allow for the description of skills and dispositions necessary for effective use of mathematics.
