Developing a Real Mathematician

Course overview

To provide maths leads or teachers with the opportunity to explore different ideas about enabling pupils to become real mathematicians.

Course objectives

 1.  Developing mathematical language and vocabulary 

Explicit teaching of mathematical language and vocabulary is one of the most important and impactful aspects of developing our pupils into able mathematicians. Help pupils to master a math topics, by understanding the vocabulary associated with it. 

 2. Exploring early maths concept to ensure number sense

Focus on underlying maths concepts to improve pupil’s numbers sense so they will be able to develop the mathematical dialogue, reasoning skills and number confidence to be more able mathematicians.

 3.  Encouraging independent problem solving

Unpick and understand why pupils struggle with problem solving. Develop strategies to develop problem solving and independence. Equip pupils with skills to become more independent problem solvers. 

 4.  Interventions that work

 Explore and understand what basic mathematical structures pupils need to make progress. Review different interventions and consider which would have the most impact on your pupils.

Maths Subject Knowledge for Teaching Assistants

Course overview

To enable TAs to develop their subject knowledge in different areas of Maths

Course objectives 

 1.  Calculation

This session will look at common misconceptions within all 4 operations, how to teach the four operations, explore mental strategies, procedures and problem solving techniques.

 2.  Shape, space and measure

In this session Teaching Assistants will learn the key vocabulary associated with 2D and 3D shape and common misconceptions pupils face. They will learn to teach multiplication and division to assist with conversions of measure (including units of time) and work out the area of rectangles. Multiplication and division will be embedded in a meaningful context to help pupils make connections, reason and problem solve.  

 3.  Fractions, decimals and percentages

In this session Teaching Assistants will learn the key vocabulary associated with fractions decimals and percentages. They learn how to use multiplication and division effectively to convert between improper fractions and mixed number and fractions and decimals and fractions and percentages and what address misconceptions pupils could face.

4.  Ratio and Proportion

This session will explore different mathematical strategies to enable pupils to solve proportional reasoning problems. Teaching assistants will explore multiplicative reasoning strategies to be able to help pupils to scale things up and to scale things down and solve ratio problems.
