Spring Event Workshops

Teaching for Deeper Understanding in Maths - Mark McCourt

Mark McCourt, will explore ways to raise attainment in mathematics across the age and ability range by creating opportunities for students to think mathematically, make deep connections and gain a greater appreciation of mathematical ideas and concepts.

There will be lots of examples to take back to the classroom as well as a discussion about the research and evidence behind the approaches and how sequences of lessons can be structured to give students the best chance of success in maths.

Exploring Greater Depth of Understanding in Mathematics at KS3

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.

Would you like to host an event?

Our MTN events are about the power of collaboration. We believe we are better when we come together and help each other. In this spirit, our regional events are hosted by volunteer schools. If you would like to host an event, please get in touch.

Hosting an event requires:

A main room or hall for workshops & plenary sessions
A member of your staff to deliver a 30 minute opening plenary
Somewhere we can eat our packed lunches together
If you can stretch to it, some tea, coffee and biscuits (we can help with costs if needed)
Your support and liaison up to and throughout the event
Energy and a willingness to share your expertise
