Singapore Math Institute First Announcement Document Transcript

  • 1. First AnnouncementSingapore Math InstituteTheme: Creating Exciting Learning Experiences26 – 27 November 2012Singapore Singapore Math in LondonPlease contact GeraldynSng@sg.marshallcavendish.com for further enquiriesThe Second Singapore Math Institute in Singapore features Dr Yeap Ban Har,a renowned Singapore Math expert and Dr Makoto Yoshida, aninternational authority on lesson study in mathematics. Together with a line-upof renowned speakers familiar with Singapore mathematics curriculum, thisinstitute aims to provide participants with professional learning for teachersto deliver world-class mathematics programmes. The First Singapore MathInstitute in Singapore was hosted by Canossa Convent Primary School lastyear.
  • 2. Day 1 (26 November 2012)0800-0845 Registration Plenary Lectures0900-1030 Problem-Solving Approach in Mathematics Teaching in Japanese Primary Classroom by Dr Makoto Yoshida The speaker will describe the problem-solving approach in teaching mathematics that is often seen during research lessons in Japanese schools. The lesson structure as well as selected features of such lessons will be discussed.1100-1230 Learning Experiences in Primary Mathematics Classroom to Promote 21st Century Competencies by Dr Yeap Ban Har The speaker will provide examples of learning experiences that help students cultivate a range of competencies in the 21st Century Competencies Framework. The examples include learning situations to develop new concepts and skills, as well as those for consolidation and application of learning. Classroom Sessions 1.1 Problem-Solving Heuristics in Primary Mathematics by1330-1530 Ammiel WanPlease select one from four Participants will learn to use different problem-solving heuristics tosessions. solve different types of mathematics problems. Some heuristics are more concrete such as act-it-out while others are more pictorial such as draw-a-picture or draw-a-model. Others are more abstract such as look-for-patterns. 1.2 Interesting Problems that Foster Students’ Thinking from Japanese Classrooms by Dr Makoto Yoshida Participants will get to learn about, and solve, various types of problems used in the Japanese classrooms to promote thinking and learning. This session is designed to give teachers ideas on how to implement a problem-solving curriculum such as Singapore mathematics curriculum. 1.3 Lesson Structure and Tools for the 21st Century Classroom by Dr Yeap Ban Har How do teachers balance mastery and problem solving? This session includes a discussion on a lesson structure that helps participants achieve this balance. Participants also learn the use of a mathematics journal in everyday mathematics classes, for learning as well as for assessment. 1.4 The CPA Approach & Thinking Skills by Juliana Loh In this session, learn how the CPA Approach is applied in the classroom. Using examples from measurement (volume / capacity) and geometry (nets), this hands-on session also shows participants how to integrate thinking skills into everyday mathematics lessons. The thinking skill selected for this session is making a hypothesis. Reflection Forum1600-1700 How do we teach mathematics so that it is close to the vision outlined in the Singapore syllabus (or your own countrys)?
  • 3. Facilitators: Peggy Foo and Dr Yeap Ban Har Day 2 (27 November 2012)0830-0900 Registration Plenary Lectures0900-1030 Professional Learning in Primary Mathematics through Lesson Study by Dr Makoto Yoshida The speaker will discuss potential professional learning for teachers through lesson study. In particular, the speaker will share strategies that lesson study participants can use to increase the depth of discussion during lesson study.1100-1230 Holistic Assessment in Primary Mathematics by Dr Yeap Ban Har Participants will review the concept of holistic assessment and learn to plan and conduct holistic assessment of student learning. Classroom Sessions 2.1 Using Textbooks to Promote Professional Learning During Lesson Study by Dr Makoto Yoshida Learn how to study the textbooks and use it to gain deep learning during lesson study. Learn to anticipate students responses during lesson planning. Learn how to refine typical, traditional lesson plans to meet the demands of a progressive1330-1530 curriculum.Choose from 4 sessions 2.2 Thinking Routines in Primary Mathematics by Peggy Foo In this session, participants learn some strategies to make thinking visible in primary mathematics classrooms. A selection of strategies which were developed in Project Zero (based in Harvard University) will also be discussed. 2.3 Using Textbook Tasks to Challenging High-Ability Students by Dr Yeap Ban Har Participants will learn how to use textbook tasks to challenge able students and how to tweak and extend textbook tasks to develop high-ability students competencies in problem solving and provide stimulating learning experiences. 2.4 The CPA Approach & Thinking Skills by Juliana Loh In this session, learn how the CPA Approach is applied in the classroom. Using examples from measurement (volume / capacity) and geometry (nets), this hands-on session also shows participants how to integrate thinking skills into everyday mathematics lessons. The thinking skill selected for this session is making a hypothesis. Reflection Forum1600-1700 How do we implement a world-class mathematics programme in our schools?
