Maths teacher Peps McCrae, from Falmer High School in Brighton, is spending a day at the Royal Navy's training base in Portsmouth for some inspiration on how to motivate his Year 11 class.
Maths is seen as a vital skill in the Navy, underpinning just about everything the Navy does. Peps joins maths "ninja" Lieutenant Peter Erhahiemen to see how he manages to motivate and teach his class.
It takes Peter just three weeks to turn a class, many of whom had failed maths GCSE, from white belt to blue belt mathematicians. Peps observes Peter's techniques in the classroom and on-board the training ship in the hope of replicating them in his classroom.
