Primary Mathematics Leaders Meetings 2014/15

Professional Development for Mathematics Leaders and Specialists in Primary Schools

NRICH is committed to supporting MaST teachers - those who are qualified and those who are in training - and Mathematics Leaders in nurturing confident, resourceful and enthusiastic teachers and learners of mathematics in their schools. We do this through a mix of conferences and online resources.

Forthcoming conference dates 2014/15 - all sessions at London Mathematical Society
Each day stands alone and also provides a series over the year so that you can attend one or all of the days.

The focus for the series is 'Embedding the three aims of the new National Curriculum'

AUTUMN TERM 

Leading Learning: Inspiring Learners 9: Wednesday 26 November BOOKING OPEN

Embedding Problem Solving in Number Sense

Number Sense is one of the most essential building blocks for learners and we want to support you in ensuring that they experience the three aims of the new National Curriculum within that context. Watch out for full details and booking opening in early September. Meanwhile - keep the date!

SPRING TERM
Leading Learning: Inspiring Learners 10:
 Wednesday 11 March 

Embedding problem solving in Geometry

Geometrical reasoning is a significant part of children's mathematical development. This day will look at how a problem-solving approach can foster such reasoining. It will also unpick what it means to be fluent in geometrical reasoning and, as always, explore lots of great NRICH problems for you to take back to school. 

SUMMER TERM
Leading Learning: Inspiring Learners 11:
 Wednesday 10 June

Supporting children to be great at Reasoning

Reasoning is the glue in mathematics. However, we are often uncertain how to develop children's reasoning skills and their ability to communicate their reasoning clearly. This day will consdier stategies that will support children to do this and will look at how NRICH tasks can be consistently and effectively used to support progression in reasoning.
