Whole Class Teaching: Teaching Mathematics Using Low Threshold High Ceiling Tasks



This event will include plenaries for primary and secondary colleagues, and particular workshops for key stage 1/2 teachers and key stage 3/4 teachers. 

Thanks to generous philanthropic and in-kind support we can offer free places to all all teachers from UK state maintained schools/academies.

The day will include opportunities to:

  • consider what makes an engaging maths classroom
  • work on a variety of NRICH low threshold high ceiling tasks
  • explore the role of the teacher


To explore how low threshold high ceiling tasks can be used in a whole class learning environment with students working at a variety of attainment levels.

Who will benefit from attending?

All teachers of mathematics in Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4 who want to develop their expertise in working with low threshold high ceiling NRICH tasks.

Student teachers who will be graduating in 2020 are also welcome to attend the day.
