Cuisenaire - an Introduction In this introductory session we will look at how we can use Cuisenaire Rods to help pupils conceptualise ideas in number, arithmetic and fractions. Cuisenaire is a manipulative with great utility and helps pupils explore and understand relationships, avoiding purely instrumental understanding. Jonathan Hall 2 April 2020 14:00 1.5 hours £20
Algebra Tiles - an Introduction Algebra tiles are a powerful manipulative we can utilise in the mathematics classroom to help our pupils conceptualise a variety of interlinked ideas. In this session we will explore ways in which to provide opportunities to conceptualise in topics such as directed number, simplifying expressions and solving linear equations. Gary Lamb 3 April 2020 14:00 2 hours £20
Behaving Mathematically This webinar takes a look at the 'behave' phase of a learning episode, exploring a selection of problems to encourage pupils to 'behave mathematically' in lessons. We will look at a range of tasks, each are pedagogically rich, require minimal preparation and will add an important and interesting dynamic to your lessons. Jonathan Hall 3 April 2020 11:00

Deeper Understanding Deeper understanding and problem solving are key areas in becoming the complete mathematician, but very challenging to plan for on a daily basis. In this session we will look at practical ways in which you can build opportunities for pupils to ‘practise’ problem solving. We will offer a selection of tasks that provoke deeper understanding through purposeful practice and creative thinking. Gary Lamb 6 April 2020 14:00 2 hours £20
The Science Behind Every Maths Lesson Did you know that every day, with all of your classes you are using many of the recommendations that have arisen from the field of cognitive science? In this session we explore the importance of research informed practice and what simple steps we can take to make learning more impactful. Gary Lamb 7 April 2020 14:00 2 hours £20
Mastering Mastery Mastery learning has been hugely misinterpreted in recent times and in this session we will explore a brief history of mastery, what the research tell us about mastery in real classrooms and how we can make this work in practice. This session will include an exemplar of what a learning episode might look like following the mastery cycle. Gary Lamb 8 April 2020 14:00 2 hours £20
Cuisenaire Masterclass A masterclass on the use of Cuisenaire in the classroom. A wide range of engaging and effective tasks will be explored covering key topics within number, algebra and geometry. Jonathan Hall 9 April 2020 11:00
