2018 The importance of developing children’s counting skills: The move from rote to rational counting: Webinar

15 Aug 2018 to 15 Aug 2018  03:45 pm to 05:00 pm

Online only: MAV

FREE WEBINAR

In this hands-on workshop participants will discuss the importance of young children developing each aspect of the five counting principles that govern and define counting as elaborated by Gelman and Gallistel (1978). Video excerpts and activities will demonstrate what these counting principles look like in practice. Counting tasks from the Mathematics Online Interview will be linked to the Counting section of the Framework of Mathematical Learning and activities from the Mathematics Developmental Continuum. The conceptual understanding needed to move children from using inefficient strategies, such as counting by ones, to more efficient strategies will be highlighted.

Who should attend: Year 2 to 6

Presenter: Catherine Pearn

Cath is a lecturer in Mathematics Education at the University of Melbourne where she teaches early childhood, primary, secondary and special education students at postgraduate level. Cath is also a Senior Research Fellow in Assessment and Reporting (Mathematics and Science) at ACER. Cath has written, delivered and reviewed programs for primary and secondary teachers in Australia and overseas. Since 1992 she has been involved in research projects investigating how students learn mathematics at the early childhood, primary, secondary and tertiary levels, particularly students mathematically ‘at risk’. Her current PhD research is looking at the links between fraction competence and algebraic thinking.

2018 Let's get started! Using games to promote fluency and reasoning: Webinar

12 Sep 2018 to 12 Sep 2018  03:45 pm to 05:00 pm

Online only: MAV

FREE WEBINAR

Teachers will be elbow deep in dice and cards during this workshop. The session will focus on developing mathematical fluency and reasoning in students through the use of hands-on and engaging card and dice games. Teachers will be armed with a range of activities and we will explore how to easily differentiate for a range of student learning needs.

Who should attend: Foundation to Year 6

2018 Algorithmic thinking across Primary Years: Webinar

19 Sep 2018 to 19 Sep 2018  03:45 pm to 05:00 pm

Online only: MAV

FREE WEBINAR

Algorithmic thinking provides opportunities for students to follow and create a well-defined set of instructions to perform a task or solve a problem. We often focus purely on numbers, without linking algebraic problem-solving skills. Promoting algorithmic thinking encourages and increases students’ ability to solve problems using different strategies. This workshop will demonstrate lesson from Year 2 to Year 6 that challenge students with the opportunity to explore algorithmic thinking. These lessons have been successfully used in classrooms and will be available online through the MAV website with enabling and extending prompts.

Who should attend: Year 2 to Year 6

Presenters: Jen Bowden and Martin Holt

Martin is an educational consultant with a background in primary education and maths leadership in schools. He helps teachers instill a classroom culture which normalises high engagement and challenge for all students. Martin sees the deliberate and strategic selection of tasks as a key to achieving this aim. Through his work in schools, teachers increase their knowledge of the research-informed characteristics of engaging and challenging tasks and are given access to over 100 tasks from a range of resources.
