USING MANIPULATIVES IN SECONDARY
A Work Group to deepen understanding of physical and virtual manipulatives, and of the Teaching for Mastery approach through greater depth and multiple representations.
This Work Group will focus on physical manipulatives for developing conceptual understanding, making the link across primary and secondary mathematics, and linking to virtual manipulatives and the transition to formal written methods as appropriate.
Participants will have opportunities to compare alternative manipulatives and explore best practice for their setting.
It is a hands-on course and participants will commit to attending the four sessions, conducting tasks in school with their own pupils, discussing the impact with colleagues, keeping a reflective journal and writing an evaluation.
FREE. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
