Using Investigative approaches when teaching mathematics

This course aims to give ideas and suggestions for how mathematical behaviours, including the skill of reasoning, can be developed in children.

Promoting a culture of reasoning in a classroom can feel daunting and mysterious. This course aims to give ideas and suggestions for how mathematical behaviours, including the skill of reasoning, can be developed in children. It will look at scaffolding as opposed to differentiating learning and will embrace the principles of Teaching for Mastery.

During the two sessions during the Autumn Term 2017 the course leader, Sharon Day, will:

*   Explain a way of planning investigation lessons with the delegates

*   Model investigation lessons for the delegates to observe and discuss

*   Share follow-up resources that teachers can use back in class

 

It is expected that delegates who attend the course will be able to experiment back in school after session one with their own class and report any findings back to the group during session two.

Delegates will need to attend both sessions and the dates are as follows:

 

session 1

session 2

Years 1, 2 & 3

1:30pm – 3:30pm
