Inspire Maths School Improvement: Introduction to bar modelling and the Singapore approach to teaching mathematics
Join us to explore one of the heuristics used in the Singapore approach to teaching and learning mathematics. We will investigate the progression of bar modelling from Year 1 through to Year 6, enjoying some tricky questions from Inspire Maths on the way.
In this workshop we will explore how the bar modelling method is used to develop pupils’ understanding of mathematical concepts. We will 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 in key stages 1 and 2. We will also have the opportunity to look at how bar modelling can be used to solve algebraic expressions. This is an interactive workshop where you will be doing the maths, which will be inspiring, enjoyable, stimulating and thought provoking.
