Description

Inspire Maths Professional Development

Bar Modelling Day

at Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2

Using model drawing as a valuable resource to strengthen and deepen pupils’ understanding of mathematics, focusing on fluency and mastery.


Session Aims

  • To understand the use of bar modelling as a key heuristic for problem solving;
  • To become familiar with the CPA approach and the 4 key bar models;
  • To understand how bar modelling can be integral to the teaching and learning of mathematics from Year 1 to Year 6 and beyond;
  • To enjoy using this powerful method to problem solve in Key Stages 1 and 2.


Session Outline

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.


Who should attend?

New members of staff as an introduction; existing staff as a refresher; and Maths Leaders considering how the Singapore approach can support teaching to mastery.
