Mathematics 11-16: Improve your Teaching by Using Technology Effectively

Maths
The course will provide ready to use classroom ICT resources across a wide range of mathematical topics in Key Stages 3 & 4 and using a variety of software. Materials require at least a data projector to be available in the classroom and many of the activities can be enhanced by the use of an interactive whiteboard.

Maths and Special Needs

Maths
Back by popular demand, this fascinating course is endlessly useful for teachers of pupils with special needs of any sort in any setting (from lower attaining pupils in mainstream schools to whatever special provision you want to name).

NUMERACY ACROSS THE CURRICULUM: Giving Whole School Numeracy Impact

Maths
The use of number pervades all areas of the curriculum and success in Mathematics has become such an important factor for schools and their league table standing. Numeracy coordinators, Maths and senior leaders must demonstrate a coordinated approach to the development of numeracy within mathematics and across the curriculum to raise standards and achievement levels.

Planning and Teaching Outstanding Mathematics Lessons for EAL pupils using the Interactive Whiteboard

Maths
In our multicultural and multilingual classrooms it is increasingly challenging for teachers to plan and teach the curriculum content to pupils who speak English as an Additional Language. It is crucial that teaching and learning matches pupils' cognitive abilities rather than their current linguistic abilities, particularly in mathematics - a subject in which EAL students can excel.

Supporting Gifted & Talented Pupils in a KS3 Mathematics Classroom

Maths
Adults and children alike know the feeling of being ‘stuck’ in a maths lesson. In common with all pupils, able mathematicians require support from LSAs. In a top set there is still a wide ability range and pupils although able, can struggle; their confidence may be fragile. Often, able mathematicians find it particularly difficult to ask for help. LSAs need confidence and sensitivity to intervene appropriately to offer their support.
