§ 39. Mr. Peart
asked the Minister of Education what steps he proposes to take to improve the teaching of mathematics in primary and secondary schools.
§ Sir D. Eccles
Her Majesty's Inspectors are always examining ways of improving the teaching of mathematics, and giving advice to the schools. A variety of courses are available for serving teachers of mathematics, many of which are organised by or with the help of H.M. Inspectors. I would refer the hon. Member to the Answer I gave him on 16th March about increasing the supply of well-qualified teachers of mathematics.
