Overview

The fourth session of a one year, spaced and comprehensive, professional learning program and action research project that will build the capacity of numeracy leaders and classroom teachers, to improve their confidence and competence within the teaching of explicit and sequential mathematics and increase the impact of their work on student mathematics and numeracy outcomes.

Content

Geometric Thinking:

The development of spatial and geometric thinking is often not covered well in primary schools with many teachers uncertain of the benefits of developing geometric ideas.

In this session we will look at levels of geometric thinking and the types of activities that can progress students’ learning. We will model how activities can be structured to help students shift from early visual thinking to descriptive and deductive ways of thinking.
