Summary: This author agrees with the sentiments of John Hibbs' article ``Was there ever any point to the threepart lesson?'' (MT219). In particular the author fully supports a flexible approach to the structure of lessons. There are two interesting questions that arise from Hibbs' article: (1) Are there reasons for the largescale adherence of teachers to the threepart lesson?; and (2) Are there advantages that have resulted from the introduction of the threepart lesson? In this article, the author makes the case that the threepart lesson has some good points, particularly in regard to mental maths, which have become a major component of math lessons in the primary classroom.
