North Kent Mathematics Network. A discussion with the head of a Birmingham primary school, in an area of educational under-achievement, which, working closely with its local Maths Hub, embraced teaching for mastery in Listen to three secondary maths teachers discuss the best CPD they have taken part in. This is the fifth teacher exchange with schools in Shanghai since the Maths Hubs programme was launched in autumn This is the first of a series of 3 courses planned for this year to raise confidence in the teaching of mathematics. West Kent Secondary Network Meeting. Come and eat cake and talk Pi at our Secondary network meetings.
State- funded schools, colleges and academies can book one or two places on each of the three courses, with the flexibility for each day to be attended by a different teacher and the ideas shared across the department. To confirm attendance please contact: A discussion where five teachers describe books—new and old—that solvjng helped in their maths teaching.
Want to meet and network with secondary maths teachers and share your ideas?
Teachers from a sopving of schools will work together to develop their understanding of how to facilitate activities and questions that provide opportunities for all children to work at greater depth than the expected standard, as and when they are ready for it, within a teaching for mastery context. It will provide strategies and ideas for teachers to use in their classrooms to develop priblem skills of their students.
Look here for further details. Continuity in fractions learning between Year 5 and Year 8 February 1, Shanghai style lesson observation January 3, Full details will follow shortly.
NCETM PD LEAD DEVELOPMENT AND ACCREDITATION PROGRAMME
A regular podcast from the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics NCETMexploring areas of interest and debate in the teaching of maths across all school and college phases.
What did the exam boards learn when they marked papers taken by around Year 11 students in the summer? In January two nceym our local schools will host two teachers from Shanghai. Funding These courses are funded by the DfE and are offered free of charge to teachers working in state-funded schools, colleges and academies. The changes to the GCSE have given greater prominence to Reasoning and Problem Solving over the last few years and there is a national drive to increase the number of students studying maths beyond GCSE.
In mid-January, the second wave of primary teachers from Shanghai arrive in England as part of the ongoing England-China exchange programme. Building on findings from the project, more schools are being offered the opportunity to explore what it means to work deeply in mathematics.
NCETM PD LEAD DEVELOPMENT AND ACCREDITATION PROGRAMME
A discussion with the two lead editors of the PD materials, to help teachers and schools implement a teaching for mastery approach, being produced by the NCETM and Maths Hubs. The NCETM Maths podcast is produced by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics NCETMwhich is funded by the Department for Education to support all those teaching maths, to all age-groups, in schools and colleges in England, and those who provide and lead professional development activities for those teachers.
Mastery in Secondary School Maths May 11, Entry requirement for Solvinv level maths November 14, Finally, an advance warning that I will soon be announcing the dates for a series of 10 problem solving workshops for sixth oslving students on Saturday mornings at the University of Kent.
It will provide strategies and ideas for teachers to use in their classrooms to deepen their students’ understanding, encourage them to study mathematics beyond GCSE and support them in this. You can read the full record of that discussion here.
The courses include pre- and post- course tasks to support teachers in discussing the content of the days while sharing and developing best practice across entire departments. Please click here for full details and booking information. Would YOU be interested in a course to develop your Mathematics knowledge and pedagogy in a supportive environment? Further details are here.
Through reference to recent GCSE exam questions we look at how problem solving can be introduced across the mathematics curriculum and provide ideas for teachers to embed these skills systematically throughout secondary mathematics. To get the most from the courses, it is suggested that schools attend all three, although it is not necessary for the same teacher to attend all three days and the course has been designed to support three different teachers attending across all three days.
There are 35 Maths Hubs, spread across England, each led by a school with a record of high achievement in maths and of supporting improvements in maths teaching and learning in neighbouring schools. A discussion around how learning about fractions builds across the four transition years from KS2 to KS3, set in a context of a Maths Hubs national project looking at continuity of maths learning generally from Year 5 to Year 8.
Raising Confidence with Maths.
The Year 6 lessons will be very suitable for KS3 staff also. There will be showcase events so that local mathematics teachers may see and discuss lessons taught by the Shanghai staff. Find out how your school could work on teaching for mastery within the Maths Hubs programme here.
