PDG Exchange: Developing learners' maths skills through careful lesson and scheme planning (Code: C1089)
Join our series of maths/English Midlands PDG Exchanges. Exchanges provide safe, practical spaces to unpack current teaching and learning theory - bringing 'big ideas' alive so you can apply them to your own practice in meaningful ways. We've designed sessions so you can test your ideas and applications in a safe space with peers.
Who is this for?
For practitioners who want to learn from research-evidence and practice-evidence accumulated by teachers during the pandemic.
The focus is on developing a maths scheme of work and a session plan that develops learners' mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem-solving.
- Maths Teachers (all levels)
PDG Exchanges are a series of online short events designed by practitioners for practitioners on a range of current teaching, learning and assessment (TLA) topics. Each session unpacks a 'big' evidence-informed idea, models approaches which can help bring the ideas alive for learners, and provides a safe space for participants to test their thinking.
Other sessions in this series include:
- PDG Exchange - Developing learners' oracy via video - Using Flipgrid
- PDG Exchange - Developing learners' retrieval practices through low-stakes formative assessment in maths/English - Using Quizlet
PDG Exchange - Supporting all learners to work collaboratively on maths/English - Using Google docs, Mote & Jamboard
You will have the knowledge and confidence to:
- Unpack key ideas underpinning the importance of mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem-solving, with a lens on developing maths abilities.
- Plan a lesson that develops learners' mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem-solving.
- Develop a rough scheme of work for a course that develops learners' mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem-solving.
