Balanced programs use teacher directed strategies such as setting clear learning goals, summarising previous learning, asking questions to check student understanding, and enabling and extending prompts to challenge and support all students. Research also shows that student-centred strategies, such as effective differentiation and enabling collaboration, supports students to solve more complex problems and positively impacts motivation (OECD, 2016). Varied lessons structures should be aligned to the mathematics content and proficiencies.

Challenging programs aim to prioritise cognitive activation strategies, such as problem solving, reflection and guided discovery, where students are challenged to summarise, question, clarify, predict and justify their thinking and solutions, and where students are encouraged to focus on the methods used rather than seeking answers.

Is your program balanced and challenging for all students? Join us to explore, plan and understand better how we support the success and enjoyment of mathematics for all students.

“A single teaching strategy will not work for all mathematics problems …. teaching complex mathematics skills might require different instructional strategies than those used to teach basic mathematics skills…. teachers need a diverse set of tools to teach the breadth of their mathematics curriculum and to help students advance from the most rudimentary to the most complex mathematics problems” (OECD, 2016).

Day 1 : Leaders
Date: Thurs 15 June 2023

For all primary teachers to build confidence and develop professional ability as a mathematics educator in a supportive, hands-on environment.

 Focus includes:

  • Understanding and exploring what teachers need to know to create successful mathematics experiences
  • Exploring balanced and challenging teaching strategies while developing content and pedagogical content knowledge
  • Using formative and summative assessment to understand the learner's progression
  • Developing myself as a professional educator
  • In collaboration with the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, The University of Melbourne
  • Hand-picked program of high-quality presenters
  • Learn from leaders with practical and educational research experience

Venue: In person at Melbourne Graduate School of Education, at the University of Melbourne
