Description

Differentiating Maths: How To Do It

This year our team-based annual conference is all about differentiating maths K-6. Featuring some of Australia’s greatest primary maths experts, including Emeritus Professor Peter Sullivan, this one-day Saturday conference gives you the tools and strategies you need to take your differentiation from good to great.

The conference will show you why the subject of mathematics needs a unique approach to differentiation, and how to make it simple, low-stress and incredibly effective. With a 60-minute keynote address, a 20-minute Pecha Kucha session and 12 workshops to choose from, you’re bound to come away inspired and informed with practical tasks, hands-on tools, maths talk and content knowledge, ready for use in school the very next week.


Registering your team is easier than ever!

We know that schools can be busy places. So, we’ve made it easier than ever to secure your tickets. Either:

(A) Just PAY NOW - DETAILS LATER; simply grab the number of tickets your school needs now. Then, later on, jump back into Eventbrite and add your team's information and session selections by the end of Term 2; or

(B) Enter all details now if you already know who you want to send and their session selections. To help you quickly gather this information we’ve created PLANNING SHEETS for you to download from www.primarymaths2019.com.au/register


Who should attend?

This is a school team-based conference. Schools can send a team of up to eight educators, however, individual delegates are also very welcome to attend. Content will be suitable for leaders AND teachers, with workshop audiences clearly identified by career stage as well as grade.

Your school team could include the following educators K-6:

  • Classroom teachers
  • Instructional Leaders
  • Maths leaders and maths team members
  • Principals, Deputy Principals, Assistant Principals.


Ticket price includes

  • Morning tea and lunch, with tea/coffee and fruit and yoghurt on arrival

  • Conference bag and lanyard

  • A take-home folder containing workshop materials from speakers including differentiated printables for classroom use.

  • Access to an electronic folder of files and resources from speakers on the day

  • The chance to win primary maths book bundles, valued at $142 each, hand selected by Anita.


Differentiation: we know why it’s important. So why is it so hard?

For many schools, differentiation – particularly in maths – remains confusing and challenging. How do you cater for each student in your class to give them the best opportunity and challenge their learning? Where do you find the time to create ‘just right’ tasks and activities for the 30 different students in your classroom? How do you keep track of where each student is at, where their gaps are, and what they need to learn next in order to progress?


Differentiating maths: introducing a better way

Featuring some of Australia’s leading experts in primary mathematics and differentiation including Emeritus Professor Peter Sullivan, the 2019 annual conference gives you a better way to take your differentiation from good to great.

Find out how to use one rich, low-floor, high-ceiling task for the entire class, with enabling prompts for students who need extra help and extending prompts for students who are ready to be challenged further.

At this game-changing conference, teachers will also learn effective questioning techniques to open up deeper thinking, how to plan and program for differentiated instruction, effective use of mathematics equipment and visual models and examples of formative assessment tasks.


The conference will allow delegates to:

  • Understand how differentiation for maths is different.

  • Learn the secrets to whole-class differentiated instruction.

  • Find out how to create engaging, low-floor, high-ceiling differentiated tasks.

  • Gain a robust toolkit for differentiating maths, including how to ask quality open-ended questions, embed the use of visual models, effectively use equipment, support productive struggle and lead mathematical conversations in your classroom.

  • Learn how to spot each student’s mathematical potential, where they are at in their journey and the gaps in their understanding.

  • Take the first steps towards the whole-school approach that will transform maths at your school.
