Recommendations have been made on how to improve mathematics teaching and learning in Wales.

On 28 January 2015, the Minister for Education and Skills launched the first Welsh Government national “Mathematics for Life” conference and announced the establishment of an independent Mathematics Task and Finish Group.

The time-bound Task and Finish Group was established in January 2015 and considered a range of issues of what works well in mathematics teaching and learning in Wales. The final report details actions that we can move swiftly on and take into account the Welsh educational infrastructure and currently levels of resource.

The Group provided final recommendations to the Minister for Education and Skills which are both fit for purpose and deliverable.
