Making Maths Count Series of Six Full-day Workshops
These workshops are designed to achieve a balance between needs-based group teaching and collaborative problem solving pedagogies and approaches. Each workshop has its own focus and can be attended as a stand alone day of professional development or, as a series of six days throughout the year, they build on ideas developed and are perfect for developing teacher confidence and competence in teaching mathematics.
During the series of workshops, teachers will experience group lessons modelled with students and will also be supported to plan mixed ability problem solving lessons.
