On Monday evening Channel 4 broadcast a programme called ‘Kids Don’t Count’ in which they examined how children are being failed by teachers who are themselves not mathematically able. They tested a group of teachers to find out just how good they were and the results are ‘ interesting’.
If you want to test yourself in a 15 minute version of the test then you can have a go here. It is interesting when you read the comments on the blog that, it seems, that only people who did well wish to tell what they think!
