Workshop description

Mathematics is a language that requires knowledge of concepts and skills, and the ability to interpret words, symbols and graphics. However, many students struggle with knowing how to use what they know when faced with unfamiliar problems.This hands-on workshop presented by Anita Chin will empower educators with tools and strategies for a whole-school-approach to intentionally embed teaching the language of mathematics in your lessons which caters to the needs of all learners.

Participants will engage with classroom-ready tasks, tools and talk using:

  • scaffolding sheets for students
  • curriculum language word walls for teachers
  • word cards for teacher instruction and close passages for student pair work
  • Singapore bar model picture cards and concrete materials to interpret word problem types and operations
  • ten-frames to transform word problems to number sentences.

Whole-class instruction strategies modelled include the use of:

  • mathematical images from the online syllabus to tell or write a story
  • graphics in measurement word questions used in NAPLAN tests requiring fluency with number lines
  • drawing a diagram and/or setting out work in a logical manner to solve measurement word questions in NAPLAN tests
  • NAPLAN test questions to connect measurement concepts to prior learning in number concepts
  • journal writing.
