These will be discussed in this workshop. Target audience: Primary Teachers Presenter: Brooke Brennan

Maths 300: Anatomy of a Lesson eg. Dice Footy

Wednesday 18th August 2021
4:00PM - 5:00PM
Location:
Virtual Learning Session

When you find a successful maths lesson it is professionally interesting to 'pull it apart to find out what makes it tick'. One successful and timely M300 lesson is known as Dice Footy (its currently Footy season) and it is primarily this lesson that will be workshopped to find its underlying 'anatomy' i.e those features and ingredients that can make all lessons more successful. It looks initially like a simple game but rapidly becomes a seriously productive mathematical investigation.Target Audience teachers of Years 5- 10. Presenter: Charles Lovitt.

Initially Dr Paul Swan will discuss common predictors that indicate students are likely to experience difficulties in number and ways of preventing or least giving them early attention so that they don't develop into larger problems later. Later In this session Dr Paul Swan will focus on common issues that come up when teaching mathematics and look at some simple interventions to help 'cure' common problems. Note that many of the issues are often language based so elements of the Newman analysis will be shared to determine whether the issue is primarily a language based or a mathematics based issue.
