Course Description

All pupils can learn well. All pupils can be successful in mathematics.

In this full day CPD session, we will discuss why and how it is possible for all pupils to learn every single bit of the mathematics curriculum, from counting to calculus, in a deep and memorable way.

We will consider how schools and teachers can structure curriculum and lessons in order to unleash the limitless potential of every single pupil.

We will also discuss the implications for schools in terms of how pupils are grouped and how learning is viewed by teacher, pupil and parent.

Pulling together the very best of what is known about teaching and learning mathematics into a coherent approach for ensuring success, we will examine the key steps that teachers can take in their classrooms today to transform the outcomes of their pupils.
