Primary Maths Networking & Talk - London C & NW Hub

Eleanor Palmer Primary School, Lupton Street, London NW5 2JA

Tuesday 30th January, 2018


1:30-2pm Networking

2-3:30 pm Ruth Merttens + discussion

4pm Finish


Ruth is the mathematician behind Hamilton and Abacus. She is a passionate and engaging speaker - so this is an opportunity for you to be fed with maths thinking!

She will focus on two questions:

  • ​What is pedagogy for Mastery?
  • Is a blocked curriculum essential for Mastery?

She says:

DfE is currently promoting two things: the Shanghai maths pedagogy and the use of a blocked, as opposed to a spiarl curriculum. We need, as professionals, to inspect these prescriptions.

What type of pedagogy is ideal for Mastery? DfE argue that Shanghai mathematics does not consist purely of rote learning and drill. So if the debate is not between 'teaching for understanding' versus 'rote-learning', what is the real argument? Exactly what does 'teaching for understanding' mean in the UK context?
