Shanghai Extra: Effective use of Representations
Thu 20 April 2017, 16:00 – 17:30 BST
Following the successful 2016/17 exchange between teachers from England and China, London Thames Maths Hub have put together a work group designed to introduce the key features of teaching for mastery.
Four twilight sessions will run between 4pm – 5.30pm on the given dates, over the course of the four-sessions we will look at:
Day 1 - Bar Modelling - 23rd March 2017
Introduction to the ‘5 big ideas’ and focusing in on Representations and Structures, as well as Mathematical Thinking.
Bar Modelling: Bar modelling is used to support pupils with visualising mathematical concepts when solving problems. Using bar models, children can access some highly complex problems with relative ease.
Day 2 - Ten Frames - 20th April 2017
Ten Frames training: Using ten frames as key representation for the development and mastery of early number. One of the key tenets of mastery is the use of good quality mathematical representations – the ‘Ten Frame’ has been instrumental for EYFS and KS1 teachers to use as a model for teaching number sense: counting, cardinality, comparing and composition.
Day 3 - Fractions - 18th May 2017
Fractions: Participants will have the opportunity to consider the use of high quality manipulatives, models and images to enhance the teaching and learning of fractions across Key Stage 1 and 2.
Day 4 - Reasoning - 29th June 2017
Reasoning: This session will have a clear practical element and aims to improve teachers’ subject knowledge, pedagogy and classroom practice in relation to developing pupils’ mathematical reasoning skills.
