This learning event is right for you if you are a primary mathematics teacher seeking to enhance your practice to improve student outcomes.
Especially now after the return to school, a major challenge for teachers is engaging all students in the learning of mathematics. These sessions will outline types of tasks that are accessible for all students, and ways of structuring those tasks, along with the pedagogies that support the learning of students experiencing difficulty and those who are ready for further challenges.
- Understanding of the six strategies for effective mathematics teaching
- Approaches to implementing these in the classroom
- Exposure to research to support good teaching.
Professor Peter Sullivan
Peter Sullivan is the Director of Professional Resources for reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry and an Emeritus Professor at Monash University. Peter has had a career that combines research into task design with the development of teacher support resources and classroom trialling. He was author of the Shape of the Australian Mathematics Curriculum, a paper commissioned by the National Curriculum Board to lay the foundation of the Australian curriculum. The theme was implications from research for curriculum. Subsequently he was appointed the “lead writer” for the development phases of the curriculum and has supported ongoing development of the documents, including consulting on the review.
