This course considers the most recent evidence for what makes outstanding mathematics teaching from a range of perspectives. It introduces participants to contexts for mathematics which engage pupils in deep learning experiences, both challenging them and enabling them to refine and master mathematical processes and content..
- Identify features that contribute to outstanding learning and mastery of mathematics
- Consider the integral role played by the aims of ‘fluency, reasoning and problem solving’ throughout the mathematics curriculum and how to ensure they are delivered through teaching
- Consider what evidence of outstanding learning in mathematics looks like
- Consider effective assessment of mathematics in relation to a curriculum without levels
- Identify structures for activities which will facilitate high quality formative assessment and surface misconceptions
- Explore models for making mathematics meaningful, authentic and relevant
- Consider the mathematical skills that pupils will need to be equipped with in order to function effectively in their future lives and the contexts for learning within which those skills might be developed
