Event description

Description

This is a hands-on workshop with two sessions for Years 7-8 maths teachers.

Session 1: Creative ways to engage learners

Learn how to engage students of all abilities with a diverse range of curriculum linked games, carefully crafted to provide rich learning experiences and follow best teaching practise. Build skills, confidence and higher order thinking with activities to get your students ‘thinking out loud’.

Session 2: Developing mathematical language

Getting lost overseas isn’t much fun, especially when you can’t read the signs or speak the language! For a lot of students, solving maths problems feels much the same. The good news is we can do something about it. In this session, you’ll be shown a range of fun, hands-on activities to provide a meaningful context for the use and repetition of mathematical terms. Learning by immersion is the fastest, most natural way to understand language, so let’s make use of it by immersing our students in the world of mathematics.

This workshop is facilitated by Andrew from Think Square
