Presentation for training day

  1. 1. What does good / outstanding maths teaching and learning look like?
  2. 2. … mathematical understanding is critical to our children's future. Our economic future depends on stimulating innovation, developing technological breakthroughs, making connections between scientific disciplines. And none of that is possible without ensuring more and more of our young people are mathematically literate and mathematically confident. Mathematical understanding underpins science and engineering, and it is the foundation of technological and economic progress. As information technology, computer science, modelling and simulation become integral to an ever-increasing group of industries, the importance of maths grows and grows. Secretary of State for Education 2011
  3. 3. G OOD / OUTSTANDING T & L OF MATHS  Planning – linked to AfL  AfL  Good progress  Pace and structure – enthuse and motivate  Well organised  Children are on task and productive  Effective Questioning  Check for learning – alert to errors or misconceptions WITHIN the lesson.  Teacher has high expectations  Subject knowledge and skill used to build upon understanding.  Resources, including other adults, contribute to the quality of learning.  Adults ensure kids know how well they are doing and give steps for improvement – FEEDBACK  Effective teaching strategies – well judged and imaginative!
  4. 4. WHAT IS THE POINT OF PLANNING TO IMPROVE T &L?
  5. 5. Planning * What are the mathematical demands of the topic you’re teaching? • Do the pupils need to be taught the skills or are they applying them in a new context? • What are you TEACHING them as opposed to what are they DOING? • What skill do you need to use to ensure they all make progress? • How can you advance the learning of all pupils? • How do you need to develop your learning environment to promote this topic? Language, resources, displays, steps to success…

  10. 10. H OW D O W E H E L P C H I L D R E N B E C O M E E F F E C T I V E L E A R N E R S I N C A L C U L A T I N G, P R O B L E M S O L V I N G A N D R E A S O N I N G ? Practical, hands-on experiences of using, comparing and calculating with numbers and quantities and the development of mental methods are of crucial importance in establishing the best mathematical start. Modelling and using accurate mathematical language so that pupils learn to express their thinking using the correct vocabulary. Is it a SUM? Understanding of place value – it is MORE than just tens and units. Number facts and number bonds – need to be embedded not just KS1. Multiplication tables – they just need to know them!
  11. 11. H OW D O W E H E L P C H I L D R E N B E C O M E E F F E C T I V E L E A R N E R S I N C A L C U L A T I N G, P R O B L E M S O L V I N G A N D R E A S O N I N G ? Introduce subtraction as the INVERSE of addition and division as the INVERSE of multiplication. Children need to know they key concepts of both but also of their relationship. Focus on the maths skill and not the task or the written method – What are they learning to do? Add? Keep it simple! Problem solving has to be an integral part of learning within EVERY topic – exploit links within work on measures and data handling, and meaningful application to cross-curricular themes and work in other subjects.
  12. 12. H OW D O W E H E L P C H I L D R E N B E C O M E E F F E C T I V E L E A R N E R S I N C A L C U L AT I N G, P RO B L E M S O LV I N G A N D R E A S O N I N G ? Recognise and Intervene when kids are struggling and have deep rooted misconceptions – seek support within our skilled staff! SSM  Using and Applying number (within the context of…) L2 - ask and answer simple questions by counting the number of objects in each category and sorting the categories by quantity. L3 - solve one-step and two-step questions such as ‘How many more?’ and ‘How many fewer?’ using information presented in scaled bar charts and pictograms and tables. 3 / 1/ 1 weekly format.
  13. 13. OUTCOMES:  Plan and assess maths in your classroom based around what the needs are.  Develop a more practical approach to your teaching.  Don’t ignore misconceptions in number because they seem to deeply rooted but take a risk and have a go.  Use SSM to develop application of number skills!
  14. 14. AIM: to improve the learning!  Shared learning goals  Active involvement – pupils informed  Self and peer assessment  Effective feedback  Belief that all can improve  Motivation and self esteem  Involves both teacher and learner How do children know what teachers really mean?

  19. 19. For maximum impact:  Linked with key skills for knowledge  Known by teachers first  Same for all – differentiation by supported activity  Generated by pupils  Constantly referred to  Used for peer and self assessment when appropriate  Broken down into further criteria when needed! STEPS TO SUCCESS

  21. 21. CHILD GENERATED STEPS TO SUCCESS… Make all your letters the correct size. Use dark colours to make it stand out. Don’t use yellow because it is not clear.. Put pictures round the edge, not in the middle. Check that you have copied all words and numbers carefully.
  22. 22. HOW TO GENERATE STEPS TO SUCCESS WITH THE CHILDREN  Prove it/doing it wrong – teacher modelling  A finished product  Comparison of two products  Sloppy success criteria  Teacher demonstration  Revisiting success criteria from previous lesson.  Stop and display a randomly selected child’s work.  Apply S.C. to suggest improvements  Then all apply to own work so far.
  23. 23. A tool that is particularly useful for written methods of calculation or with very structured processes.  Helps children over the barriers to learning.  It gives the children clear pointers about how they will achieve the lesson’s objective. STEPS TO SUCCESS IN MATHS
