Preventing the Gap – Making Big Impacts through Small Changes in Mathematics

During the day we will consider how to make big impacts through small changes in the teaching of mathematics, looking at:

  • What does effective mastery look like in mathematics, and how can this be based on Bruner’s and Dienes’ research?
  • Concrete, Pictorial to Abstract: tasks to help children understand the concepts behind what they are asked to do, to ensure that all children are successful in mathematics.
  • How to leverage the powerful aims of the 2014 National Curriculum to support Mastery.
  • Problem solving, including a deep understanding of Bar Modelling as used in Singapore.
