This full-day CPD event will include a broad discussion of the importance of connecting learning through multiple representations of concepts and ideas when modelling and teaching.
In order to secure greater depth of understanding and to give the highest possible chance for pupils to make meaning of mathematical structure, new learning should always include opportunities to explore ideas through concrete and image based manipulatives, all the time making connections to efficient symbolic and abstract approaches with explicit and precise mathematical language.
During this hands-on event, we will take a look at several mathematical ideas and how they might be taught through a CPAL approach.
The session will include using:
