2017 Dr Paul Swan – Worded questions, problem solving, engaging games and YOUR maths program.

22 Jul 2017 to 22 Jul 2017  09:45 am to 01:00 pm

Mathematical Association of Victoria

In this workshop:
Dr Paul Swan will equip you with the knowledge and skills to develop a meaningful mathematics program within your teaching context. During this hands-on workshop, you will be equipped with games, activities, planning documents, examples of materials and assessment techniques.

This event will focus on:

  • Worded questions, their presence in national testing, understanding and application of the mathematics involve
  • Broadening the problem solving process so that it becomes a natural part of the lesson
  • Mathematics behind engaging games and links to the Australian Curriculum
  • Developing fluency by linking mathematics proficiencies

About the Presenter:
Dr Paul Swan is an award winning author, acclaimed speaker and workshop presenter and developer of games and materials to support students to learn mathematics. He is an Honorary Life member of the Mathematical Association of WA and an Honorary Fellow of the Australian College of Educational Leaders (ACEL). He was awarded his PhD for his work identifying the Computational Choices of Upper primary and lower secondary students.

Who should attend:
This event is aimed at primary school teachers and those in a mathematics, numeracy and/or school leadership role. Content will also be applicable to preservice teachers and relief teachers.

 

Closing date for registrations is : 14/07/2017

2017 Enhancing the use of CAS in Mathematical Methods (TI Calculator) Year 10 and VCE Teachers

26 Jul 2017 to 26 Jul 2017  04:30 pm to 06:00 pm

Mathematical Association of Victoria

In this session featured content will include efficient use of TI-Nspire CAS to solve problems related to algebra, calculus, and discrete and continuous probability distributions. Participants will explore statistical inference for sample proportions and confidence intervals by setting up and analysing simulations. We will also look at some of the questions from the 2016 Mathematical Methods Examination 2 and some of the ways in which users of the TI-Nspire CAS calculators can benefit and save time in recording solutions and checking answers. Many of the multiple choice questions and parts of extended responses questions can be solved using pre-prepared notes pages. Participants will learn how to create these notes applications which can be used to answer typical examination questions. About the Presenter: Raymond Rozen is a senior educator at RMIT University, in the School of Education. He is currently teaching VCE Mathematical Methods and Specialist Mathematics. He has been active over many years in writing numerous trial examinations for Mathematical Methods and Specialist Mathematics, as well as presenting revision lectures in Mathematical Methods and Specialist Mathematics. Raymond is also well known for his involvement in writing senior mathematical textbooks for Jacaranda Wiley, as well as regularly presenting at conferences incorporating the use of TI-Nspire into senior classroom activities. Raymond is passionate about the use of CAS in the classroom.

2017 Hands-on Masterclass: Real World Problem Solving

31 Jul 2017 to 31 Jul 2017  04:30 pm to 06:30 pm

Mathematical Association of Victoria

A 2 hour hands-on masterclass that will help you enhance student engagement and develop student confidence whilst strategically applying STEM thinking and 21st century learning skills in an inclusive, collaborative and enjoyable style. As well as exposing you to leading-edge developments in problem solving pedagogy, this workshop will provide you with a ready-to-use set of resources. This problem solving methodology works in differentiated or streamed classroom settings, being explicitly designed to simultaneously cater for both struggling and capable students. This methodology is also ideally structured to support VCAL mathematics courses. About the Presenter: Craig Becker is an Education Consultant who does work in Primary Schools, Secondary Schools and Special Schools. Craig has over 23 years of experience in educational settings and leadership roles. He began his teaching career in Melbourne and then embraced opportunities to be in a leadership role in international schools in Singapore, Jakarta and Japan. Craig has been active in the implementation of numerous standards-based curriculum, assessment and reporting systems as well as the introduction and development of special programs and new areas of study including, SEAL, Laptop Learning, Experiential Learning, Maths Plus, Robotics, Electronics, Aeromodelling and Student-focused Student Service and Action. Craig is passionate about effective and supportive collaborative work, the utilisation of diversity and strengths whilst maximising opportunities for shared success and satisfaction.
