Some lessons — we recommend at least one per fortnight — are used for doing hands-on problem based learning, where students work in groups to solve problems; typically these lessons do not use the computer at all.

The rest of the time, students are using their workbooks, pen and paper to complete maths work. The computer is used alongside this to provide access to questions, worked solutions, videos and interactive activities.

Students also work with the teacher and interact with their peers to discuss their work and get help if they’re stuck. Once a fortnight students also complete a maths test, part of which is done on paper, with only some of it directly on the computer.
