Highly Impactful Mathematics Lessons – Maximising Learning in the Mathematics Classroom

In this workshop, we will explore a range of effective practices in mathematics teaching including:
  • Variation theory
  • Direct instruction
  • Using tests as learning rather than performance measuring
  • Using big themes in the mathematics classroom
  • Appropriate mathematical inquiry
  • Phasing learning episodes
  • Ensuring maximum ‘up time’
Join us for a thought provoking day and leave with practical approaches you can immediately use in the classroom.
MORE DATES RELEASED SOON

Chris is an avid reader of literature relating to mathematics education and has shared both this learning and practice from his own classroom regularly at conferences, where has been a popular speaker. Chris has appeared on recent episodes of Craig Barton’s podcast and is scheduled to appear for an extended interview in the coming year.

Chris has played a role in moving forward professional dialogue regarding mathematics education in Scotland. In addition to conference presentations he uses Twitter daily to share insight, ideas and opinion. He regularly publishes articles on his blog https://chrismcgrane.blogspot.com/. Chris is the lead of the Glasgow branch of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM), which regularly puts on events with expert speakers.
