NQT Maths - Number: Teaching for Understanding (Secondary)

Event code SCH 20/612 
Event description First in a series of sessions reviewing the strands of maths and various pedagogical approaches. This session we will look at how to handle, the often-difficult topic of, directed number and the varying approaches that can be used to aid understanding. If students do not understand directed number, they often go onto to struggle with abstract content. We will also look at dividing fractions, a topic that is often taught by rote learning and again look at how you can help students understanding so that they can tackle novel problems.

This session will run as an interactive zoom session. Confirmed delegates will be e-mailed the link 24 hour prior to the session. Please ensure you are able to access zoom at least 1 hour prior to the session. Please note that zoom courses are not recorded.
