White Rose Maths have been delivering 5 key Jigsaw twilights to Secondary schools around the country.
We have combined the ever popular Bar Modelling course with Reasoning & Problem Solving to create a full day of training.
An Introduction to Bar Modelling
Bar Modelling is a powerful tool for representing problems that is a key component of the teaching for mastery approach heavily utilised in some of the most mathematically successful countries in the world. Building on from concrete representations, this pictorial tool opens up understanding in many curriculum areas including number relationships, all aspects of proportional reasoning and algebra right up to simultaneous equations. This course will also explore how bar modelling can be used to make sense of – and therefore be able to solve – complex worded problems.
Reasoning & Problem Solving
Reasoning and problem solving have been high on the agenda since the most recent reform of GCSE’s . This very practical course examines how to develop these skills over the five years of secondary school, looking at the journey in reasoning from giving explanations through to developing formal proof, and how to support students at all levels of attainment to access and succeed in high-value problem solving questions. You will leave the session with ideas and strategies to implement from the very next day.
