Termly maths courses for NQT and NQT+1 teachers Enriching Primary Maths Teaching (Summer Term) Moving on with problem solving: Effective strategies for supporting children develop reasoning and problem solving skills
DateThu, 26th April, 2018
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 interactive 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;
· consider how problem solving can enable learners to become confident and competent mathematicians
· support learners to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competency in solving increasingly sophisticated problems by making rich connections across mathematical ideas
· reflect on how the learning environment, questioning and rich tasks can create opportunities to promote reasoning in mathematics
Courses £160pp or all 3 courses for £450pp (if booked together)
