Effective strategies for supporting children with word problems in primary mathematics, including the bar model approach
This interactive half-day course will explore and reflect upon some of the challenges faced when teaching children how to solve word problems. It will provide practical ideas and activities, and suggest different strategies that teachers can use to help support children as they make sense of the mathematics.
During this morning course, participants will:
• reflect on some of the barriers faced by learners (including those for whom English is not their first language) when tackling word problems
• consider the range of vocabulary that is used for the four operations
• explore some strategies and approaches that will support the teaching and learning of word problems across different phases, including the bar model approach
