Using investigative approaches when teaching mathematics

Time: - | Venue:

Promoting a culture of reasoning and problem solving in a classroom can feel daunting and mysterious. This course aims to give ideas and suggestions for how mathematical behaviours 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 three sessions 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 with the style of lesson we are going to be using, so that they can feed back to other delegates on their own findings.


The dates are as follows. Delegates will need to attend all three sessions:




Session 1

Tuesday 6th November

1:30 – 3:30 pm

Session 2

Tuesday 15th January

1:30 – 3:30 pm

Session 3

Tuesday 5th March

1:30 – 3:30 pm


Venue: Riddlesden St Mary’s Primary School, Grange Road, Keighley, BD20 5AB


The cost of this course, for all three sessions, is £150
