We will explore how pupils can learn and apply maths through paper folding. The session will include practical activities and ideas to enhance learning, for both primary and secondary pupils.
A hands on, fun, practical session with lots of ideas to take back to the classroom.
Roger has been a qualified maths teacher for 42 years. He was head of mathematics in three very different schools with a track record of improving outcomes for students. He also spent 11 years as a maths consultant/education officer with the East Riding of Yorkshire Authority, developing teaching and learning through demonstration lessons and coaching. Now semi-retired, he works supporting both primary and secondary teaching maths and serves as an AQA maths advocate.
This session will explore these questions, looking at the research and evidence around problem solving in the curriculum, and consider ways of ensuring problem solving is not a 'bolt on'.
The session will also include a range of intriguing problems and mathematical models that can be embedded in the curriculum for pupils once they have the required underpinning knowledge and ideas.

Join us for an interactive, stimulating session focussing on greater depth in mathematics.
You will be fully involved working on developing conceptual rather than procedural understanding.
You will engage in solving problems, each one at various levels and experience how representations support children’s understanding, reasoning and making connections. Each problem will be approached in multiple ways and we will look at how to use manipulatives and the CPA approach to demonstrate understanding and greater depth.
