Developing mathematical thinking for primary and beyond
This is the first of a series of 6 twilight session. The series builds on the successful Level 6 Primary Mathematics Network that was run for upper KS2 primary teachers by the City of York. Each session covers one or two topics, considers potential misconceptions and explores ways of teaching that encourage deeper understanding. Generic teaching strategies that require pupils to think mathematically are introduced systematically across the series of sessions; teachers have then used these successfully across a range of other topics.
Sessions 2-6 will be hosted in primary school settings
