All human beings ‘meaning make’ at different rates and from different models and metaphors. At the point of learning a new mathematical idea, it is the teacher’s role to ensure that as many pupils as possible make sense of the ideas being communicated. This workshop will outline ways of teaching key mathematical ideas via a range of representations, such that the impact of the lesson is far greater on many more pupils.
