What order should I teach topics in?


Sometimes it seems that by the time we come to teach a new concept, kids have forgotten everything else! Some concepts are really important in maths, but others don't matter quite so much. In this session, teachers will consider all of the different content in maths that we usually teach in primary school, and will create a sequence starting from developing the concept of quantity in Prep all the way through to complex algebraic thinking in year 6. Teachers will examine the connections between related concepts, particularly linking concepts with key ideas in number. They will also consider the precursors for teaching each topic, what can be taught simultaneously, and what needs to come later in the year. Come along prepared to be actively involved, and bring a phone to take photos.
