Workshop 1: An introduction to mastery in mathematics
Workshop 2: Algebraic reasoning
Workshop 3: Multiplicative reasoning
Workshop 4: Fractional parts
Aims of the course:
The aim of the workshop series is to allow participants to reflect on models for learning mathematics that foster deep, relational understanding of mathematics. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their understanding of what mastery learning is in mathematics and to look at classrooms that facilitate conceptual development and reasoning alongside mathematical fluency. Insight into effective problem solving is at the heart of the workshops.
Key Stage 2 and 3 Teachers.
This Course will address the essential skills and practice to:
Support the development of the mastery curriculum within Key Stage 2 and key Stage 3;
