Primary and Secondary
This is ideal PD for your staff. Much of her course content is geared towards primary education but she will be covering strategies that are useful for secondary, such as bar modelling and other forms of visual algebra. Also, the identification of dyscalculia and the effect of dyslexia on maths will be relevant to all age ranges. Many of the problems that secondary aged children face in maths are rooted in primary level misconceptions.
