Young students are active participants in their learning, particularly when engaged in play contexts but how do we best use play to teach mathematical concepts and ensure deep understanding?
Participants in this workshop will explore the characteristics of good maths learning for young students and develop a short unit of work for use in their own classroom. This will be based on a simple planning structure that follows a sequence of lessons that includes:
• Child initiated spontaneous play
• Teacher initiated discussion of the mathematical focus
• Challenging problems
• Student developed strategies, sharing and practice
• Questions and activities that require students to transfer and adapt what they have learnt.
Ideas for implementation and for recording student progress will also be presented and discussed.
