Teachers will be able to use a variety of technologies confidently and appropriately to improve engagement, develop personalised learning and raise attainment in the Measurement, Geometry and Statistics domains of the new Mathematics curriculum for primary
We will investigate how to make effective use of a range of technology, content, software and apps including whiteboard software, online content, ITPs and tablet devices (specifically iPads) to model mathematical processes, deconstruct problems and explore
abstract concepts relevant to the Measurement, Geometry and Statistics domains of the new Mathematics curriculum for primary schools.
We will use simple drawing tools to explore and create shapes with specific lengths, perimeters and area, and explore physical distances outdoors using geocaching skills and creating 'Maths trails.' We will demonstrate an understanding of angles by using
logo or other coding tools to create simple 2D shapes and explore 3D drawing software to create, analyse and combine 3D shapes of specific dimensions and then print out their creations using a 3D printer. We will use graphing and spreadsheet software to model
solutions to questions using tables of data as well as creating and interpreting a range of graphs and explore the use of data loggers to create real time graphs around scientific investigations.
*Please note the content of this one day course is almost identical to Day 3 of the 'Digital Leader in the New Maths Curriculum (Primary)' Three Day Course (IT014P/06).
