Workshop 1: A problem-solving approach to teaching Number facts -Monday 27th September, 7pm to 8pm 

Workshop 2: A problem-solving approach to teaching Operation - Monday 1st November, 7pm to 8pm 

Workshop 3: A problem-solving approach to teaching  Fractions - Monday 29th November, 7pm to 8pm 

 

The goal of this series of workshops is to provide practical advice on using a problem-solving approach to teach the strand of Number. Each workshop will have no more than 25 participants and will be interactive, address questions from participants and will highlight helpful, freely available resources for teaching such as Nrich, Mathigon, Fraction Talks. We will invite you to explore tasks, discuss your own experiences and try new ideas in your classroom. 

Engaging approaches for the teaching of Number such as the use of picture books, hands-on and digital tools will be discussed.  The messages will be universal to all classes and you can choose to focus on junior or senior primary activities in breakout room tasks. 

This series of workshops will be particularly useful for those who are leading numeracy in their schools as we look toward the forthcoming new mathematics curriculum.
