New Project Maths Students record "small but positive" improvement in skills.
Students studying under the Project Maths curriculum have recorded a “small but positive” improvement in their skills with the subject, a new study has shown. Its authors also suggest that these gains will advance further over time.
The results show a relatively small change but it will be strongly welcomed by the Department of Education which introduced Project Maths back in 2008.
