Exceeding expectations: Challenge for the more able mathematician
The content and principles underpinning the 2014 mathematics curriculum have been designed to raise standards through a ‘mastery approach to teaching as commonly followed in many high performing education systems, particularly those of east and south-east Asia. The term ‘Mastery with greater depth’ refers to challenging those pupils who grasp concepts rapidly. To achieve ‘mastery with greater depth’ pupils will be challenged through enrichment and a deepening of content rather than accelerating through the curriculum. This course will explore ways to enrich the experiences of our higher attainers through deepening their understanding of mathematical structures and build up their resilience through engaging in complex tasks.
During this afternoon course participants will:
• consider practical and engaging ways of providing greater challenge for all children, particularly the more able
• explore and reflect upon pedagogies that will enable children to develop their mathematical understanding
• Consider how differentiation can be achieved when the majority of the class are expected to move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace
• Recognise how opportunities for problem solving and reasoning can be part of all lessons.
