Event description

Description

This Work Group is designed to enhance and deepen maths subject knowledge and pedagogy for teachers. We will focus on particular representations that expose mathematical structures and look at how these can be used effectively in KS1 and KS2.

What is involved?

Effective use of representations is key to exploring mathematical structure and enabling pupils to develop deep, conceptual understanding. This Work Group will also explore the 5 Big Ideas of Teaching for Mastery.

Three twilight sessions will be running on the below dates between 4.30pm – 6.00pm.

Over the course of these three-sessions we will look at:

Day 1 - Bar Modelling – Tuesday 28th November 2017
Introduction to the ‘5 big ideas’ and focusing in on Representations and Structures, as well as Mathematical Thinking.
Bar Modelling: Bar modelling is used to support pupils with visualising mathematical concepts when solving problems. Using bar models, children can access some highly complex problems with relative ease.

Day 2 - Ten Frames – 12th December 2017
Ten Frames training: Using ten frames as key representation for the development and mastery of early number. One of the key tenets of mastery is the use of good quality mathematical representations – the ‘Ten Frame’ has been instrumental for EYFS and KS1 teachers to use as a model for teaching number sense: counting, cardinality, comparing and composition.

Day 3 - Fractions – Tuesday 9th January 2018
Fractions: Participants will have the opportunity to consider the use of high quality manipulatives, models and images to enhance the teaching and learning of fractions across Key Stage 1 and 2.

Who is leading the Work Group?

Dil Dias is Teaching for Mastery Lead at London Thames Maths Hub and has a wealth of experience supporting schools across London in developing their Teaching for Mastery approach.
