These workshops will be held each term to provide opportunities for maths leaders to network and discuss hot topics at their school and be updated with relevant events.  

Term 1 Professional Learning focus: Selecting and creating good maths tasks.

“The nature of tasks to which students are exposed determines what students learn.”  (Smith and Stein, 1998). 

  • Do you agree?  How do you select tasks? 
  • What makes a ‘good’ mathematics task? 
  • Are you tired of ploughing through endless websites and resources to find the ‘perfect’ task?

In this session, we will examine task design with  simple and effective ideas that you can share with your team in transforming low-level tasks into more challenging ones.

Participate in our ‘Unlock the box’ team challenge – a practical fun take-away activity to use with your school.

Each leadership workshop is followed by a maths content workshop (additional cost) – perfect for leaders and all teachers.
