The structure of the number system
Using mathematical representations at KS3
Although manipulatives and representations are commonly used in primary mathematics or have been historically considered the reserve of lower prior attainers, they can be equally valuable for revealing mathematical structures at secondary level for all students.
The NCETM have produced guidance for some of the most useful representations for Key Stage 3 mathematics. Each guidance document details – what they are, why they are important and how they might be used.
Using manipulatives to expose mathematical structure in Secondary
This booklet is a collection of ideas, resources and examples that Teaching for Mastery Specialist, Jayne Webster picked up on her 5 year mastery journey.
Concepts and ideas are grouped together to demonstrate a coherent journey from common KS2 representations to KS3 and beyond.
Wellingborough Spring 2020
A new opportunity to for Maths Subject Leads to come together to share ideas and experience. The aim is to build a supportive local network to help develop the teaching and learning of maths in your school.
Termly meetings, hosted in a local school, will :
Discuss key elements of good practice
Provide focused support on the use of representations and structures in helping children to secure knowledge.
Identify how PD Mastery resources can be used.
Keep you up to date with what is happening.
Provide the opportunity for you to direct your own CPD.
Our first session will be:
Thursday 19th March 2020
The Avenue Infant School
