DATE: Monday 20th July

Registrations close: Thursday 16th July

Target Audience: Teachers of Years 3 – 9


Stop losing engagement in middle years due to poor number skills. Students who have not mastered multiplication will struggle with fractions, algebra, area, percentages, changing a recipe, financial problems…and on and on. It’s no wonder these learners’ disposition toward maths is negative.

This hands-on workshop will provide strategies and engaging activities to rapidly build number skills and confidence in your learners. Bring your own deck of playing cards and preferably a partner as we explore ways to teach multiplication that go beyond rote learning a set of facts.

A range of online video tutorials and activities will be made available to participants.

Presenter: Andrew Lorimer-Derham

Andrew is a passionate educator and inventor who is relentlessly creating unique ways to spread a love of mathematics. Andrew’s desire to build skills and confidence in his students has seen him develop Think Square (a suite of hands-on maths games), Mirrogram (the world’s first reflective clothing line) and Skillhouettes (an app to track and record motor skill development). Andrew takes great pleasure in demonstrating what a joyful, imaginative and playful pursuit maths can (and should) be. He is not afraid to think differently, make mistakes and try new things. Whether that’s playing tug-of-war to teach algebra or taking Year 12’s to every train station in Melbourne in 24 hours as a Networks problem. Andrew will inspire you to see possibilities, be creative, and think outside the box as you shape the next generation of mathematicians.

PLEASE NOTE: This session will be delivered via WebEx. If possible, the session will be recorded with audio recording over the presenter’s PowerPoint.
