Find out how Inspire Maths can transform mathematics
teaching and learning in your school
The new National Curriculum has higher expectations of pupils (and teachers) and
requires learning for mastery. This workshop, led by UK experts in the Singapore approach to teaching and learning mathematics, will explore aspects of this approach that could help you to meet these increased standards whilst also creating confident and enthused learners of mathematics. Through this free afternoon workshop we will consider how the Singapore approach to mathematics and the Inspire Maths programme:
- Develops fluency and mastery leading to deep conceptual understanding
- Uses a spiral approach to develop fluency, reasoning and problem-solving
- Utilises the ‘Singapore Bar’ model drawing method as a valuable problem-solving tool
- Embeds variation theory in effective textbook content to support pupil learning
As part of her work, the NCETM’s Director for Primary, Debbie Morgan, travels the country speaking to thousands of teachers about teaching for mastery. Her presentation is developing all the time, with frequent updates and refinements to reflect input and experiences from teachers exploring new teaching approaches themselves.
This presentation was given to a conference of teachers in Lincolnshire in December 2015.
