"Shape work and the wow factor"
Shape work should be fun, sneaking some maths into the process. This session will be very hands on making 2D and 3D shapes literally with a twist. No matter what phase you teach there will be something for you to wow your students and move them forward in their mathematical thinking.
"Teaching ratio and proportion using manipulative and bar model representations”
Many students struggle with ratio and proportion but they don't need to. We will work through how these concepts can be taught using manipulative and representations, including the bar model. Learn how to develop pupils' multiplicative reasoning through the representations and models.
Bringing a certain level of enjoyment and enthusiasm helps to develop confidence and fluency in mathematics. Help your students to develop an ability to use and apply mathematics across the curriculum and in real life. This session will look at a variety of routine and non-routine problems. To reason, to think logically and to work systematically and accurately.
