Maths- Stretching the more able

    Does anyone have any good recommendations for a Maths programme, resources or way of teaching that really stretches the 'high attaining pupils' in Maths? Or a programme that helps with those who struggle with differentiation? I had a brief look into Maths Mastery and it looked good but not sure if the focus is on stretching the high attaining pupils, or more supporting the children who find maths more difficult?

    I would appreciate any thoughts or recommendations from what others are using in their schools.

    During my last placement the school used challenges taken from this website - http://www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/files_uploaded/uploaded_resources/12212/mathspuzzlesall.pdf

    They also used the baseline assessment questions for the level they were working at, or sometimes the next level to challenge them, as starters to work on. http://www.wiganschoolsonline.net/curriculum/maths/blockassess.shtm

    In addition to this, the Rising Stars Maths books which are on Amazon quite cheap are great for more able as the topics include differentiated questions which you can pick and chose from according to your children's levels.
