Registration closes: 28th August 2020
Target Audience: Teachers of years 5 to 9
In this virtual learning session, Thomas will delve into the proficiency of Mathematical reasoning and provide arguments for why this can be a great place to start when teaching students new concepts or skills. By asking the question ‘What’s happening here?’ it requires students to think deeply about the mathematics, identify patterns and relationships and discuss or argue what they believe is occurring. We will be exploring a number of activities which promote mathematical reasoning, as well exploring some of the benefits and challenges in doing so.
Presented by: Thomas Moore.
