Presented by independent education consultant and Singapore Maths Trainer, Judy Hornigold.
In this full-day interactive workshop, participants will be introduced to the Singapore maths approach and why it is proving to be so successful. The five core elements of the approach (Metacognition, Visualisation, Number Sense, Generalisation and Communication) will be explored and demonstrated. The importance of the Concrete Pictorial Abstract progression will be reviewed, and participants will have hands-on experience of a number of activities utilising the Singapore maths approach using a variety of concrete manipulatives. There will also be the chance to try out a range of problem solving approaches including a session on bar modelling. The effectiveness of this approach for learners with maths difficulties will be highlighted throughout the day.
