The power and beauty of mathematics
A one day conference to explore effective maths teaching and learning through the new National Curriculum
Keynote speaker: Mike Askew
Keynote title: Effective teaching and deep learning: lessons for mathematics
For Head Teachers, SLTs, Maths Subject Leaders and Class Teachers.
These conferences will explore how best to support children through implementing effective maths teaching and learning.
Join UK and internationally renowned maths experts to consider ways to develop fluency, reasoning and problem solving, whilst also inspiring a lifelong love and appreciation of the power and beauty of mathematics.
You will be able to attend three of the following workshops. Please ensure that you indicate your preferred sessions when booking your place.
- The Development of Fluency in the New Curriculum. Debbie Morgan, Director for Primary, NCETM
The New Curriculum has three aims, the first of which is to develop fluency. This workshop will consider what is meant by fluency and the notion of intelligent practice to embed learning and make it stick! We will explore practical ways to develop pupils’ fluency in mathematics within the context of the New Curriculum and meet the higher expectations set.
- The Singapore Bar Method: Using model drawing as a valuable resource to strengthen and deepen pupils’ understanding of mathematics. Sue Lowndes, PD Leader, BEAM
In this session we will explore how the bar modelling method is used to develop pupils’ understanding of mathematical concepts. We will also consider the bar modelling method as a valuable problem solving tool and how model drawing provides an important transition from the concrete to abstract concepts.
- Exploring mathematical reasoning through stories. Derry Richardson, PD Leader, Numicon
One of the aims of the new curriculum is to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language. Using stories as a stimulus we will explore how children communicate mathematically, and ways to develop the necessary skills in reasoning and generalizing about the maths they are doing, have done, and could do.
- Every lesson a problem solving lesson. Gill Potter, Independent Consultant
During this session delegates will explore different ways of embedding problem solving opportunities throughout the maths curriculum in order to excite children about the power of mathematics in their lives. This practical workshop explores ways to inspire children to become curious and excited by challenging ideas. This session is packed with ideas for developing fun and thoughtful activities which stimulate discussion and develop fluency.
