SPRING into Maths is a structured intervention for Year 3 to 8 students requiring extra support with mathematics.

It is aimed at strengthening mathematical understanding for students who require additional support in number concepts. In as little as five weeks, students become more engaged in mathematical learning, grow in confidence and begin to believe in themselves as mathematicians. The short, focused sessions build students self-confidence about mathematics and enable them to gain the skills and knowledge they need to thrive within their regular classroom programme.

SPRING into Maths has been developed by NZCER maths facilitator and researcher Julie Roberts and designed to be delivered to small groups of students by teachers or teacher aides. One half-day of training is required to learn the approach before undertaking this role.
