Engaging Mathematics For All Learners

Developing teachers mathematics subject knowledge in primary schools to improve the attainment of all pupils Liz Woodham, NRICH Project & Michael Hall, Open University 2014 - 2015 London Schools Excellence Fund

In between face-to-face days Dont forget https://nrich.maths.org/haringey London Schools Excellence Fund Day 8 17 March 2015 9.15-9.30 Welcome 9.30-10.45

Working on mathematical tasks together Tackling tasks and reflecting on them in terms of subject knowledge and pedagogy 10.45-11.00 Break 11.00-11.15 Data collection 11.15-12.00 Working on more mathematical tasks together Tackling one or more tasks and reflecting on them in terms of subject knowledge and

pedagogy 12.00-12.15 Curriculum priorities 12.15-1.00 Lunch 1.00-1.20 Update on various project strands 1.20-2.20 Curriculum development work

In pairs, planning for at least one task back at school 2.20-3.10 Working on more mathematical tasks together algebra followup 3.10-3.15 Reflection London Schools Excellence Fund Common themes from mathematical needs identified on day 1 The following were flagged up by at least two schools:

Fractions/decimals/percentages Problem solving Place value Time Algebra Word problems Application of calculation strategies Subtraction London Schools Excellence Fund

Common mathematical needs identified on day 7 In order of preference: mental maths assessment (planning and progression) problem solving challenging SEN children challenging the gifted division (not chunking) word problems (especially money) ratio

subtraction multiplication place value London Schools Excellence Fund Second aim of the Mathematics National Curriculum All pupils will:

reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language. (DfE, 2013) London Schools Excellence Fund In order to explore this aim, three questions need to be answered:

When is reasoning necessary? What do we do when we reason? How do we support children to develop their reasoning skills? http://nrich.maths.org/10990 London Schools Excellence Fund Maze 100

London Schools Excellence Fund When did you do some reasoning? London Schools Excellence Fund Mystery Matrix London Schools

Excellence Fund Numbers 212. Only one number used exactly twice London Schools Excellence Fund

When did you do some reasoning? London Schools Excellence Fund What do we do when we reason?

Evaluate situations Select problem-solving strategies Draw logical conclusions Develop solutions Describe solutions Reflect on solutions etc http://nrich.maths.org/10990 London Schools

Excellence Fund Helping learners get better at reasoning Progression in reasoning:

Describing Explaining Convincing Justifying Proving http://nrich.maths.org/11336 London Schools Excellence Fund Make 37

Four bags contain a large number of 1s, 3s, 5s and 7s. Pick any ten numbers from the bags above so that their total is 37. London Schools Excellence Fund Thinking about Make 37 What might each of the five stages of reasoning look like in the context of this

task? Reminder of the five stages: Describing, Explaining, Convincing, Justifying, Proving London Schools Excellence Fund Reasoning is fundamental to knowing and doing mathematics

London Schools Excellence Fund Reasoning feature http://nrich.maths.org/11018 Is in two parts: Reasoning: Identifying Opportunities Reasoning: The Journey from Novice to Expert Each part comprises an article and a selection of tasks
