Time9:30 am - 3:30 pm
LocationSt William’s Primary School, William’s Loke, Norwich
This interactive course will explore and reflect upon some of the challenges faced when teaching children how to reason and problem solve, including difficulties with solving word problems. It will provide practical ideas, activities and games to promote mathematical talk.
This course will:
• reflect on some of the barriers of mathematical language faced by learners (including those for whom English is not their first language) particularly when solving worded 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;
• reflect upon opportunities for reasoning and solving non-routine problems
