Strengthening the Teaching of Primary School Mathematics in Malawi ‘Maziko a Masamu’ (MaM) is a 3-year project that aims to improve student learning outcomes in mathematics, so that girls and boys have a solid foundation in basic skills to succeed in the rest of their schooling and fulfil their potential.
The project provides technical assistance to the Ministry of Education to revise the mathematics curriculum for lower primary (standards 1-4), develop corresponding teaching and learning materials, design teacher training strategies (including school-based support structures), rigorously pilot the new materials and training strategies, document impact, refine the materials and training strategies, and then oversee a national scale-up. The pilot will be evaluated by an independent evaluator.
The project is led by the Ministry of Education with technical assistance from Cambridge Education, a member of the Mott MacDonald Group. The project office is at the MoE’s Department for Quality Assurance Services (DQAS) in Lilongwe. The project also has an office at the Malawi Institute of Education (MIE) in Zomba.
