During this day we will be looking at the upcoming Winter Olympics in Korea, pupils will develop their mathematical skills of reasoning and problem solving at a deeper level through a range of activities. These may involve plotting graphs, predicting medal count, looking at speed and time or distance of travel for contestants. The focus of the maths will be to engage pupils in higher order thinking and skills and deep conceptual understanding using the context of Olympic Sports. The course aims to work on mathematics mastery and will provide pupils with the skills and independence to take their learning further after the course. This will be a perfect start to preparing pupils who are working at a higher level in maths to test their perseverence and resilience. Naturally, the day will focus on the three key aims of the Mathematics National Curriculum (DfE 2013). We will we looking at effective mathematical thinking and communication, in both group and independently work.
If you are interested in number, reasoning and problem solving and like to work to learning in context then this is the course for you!
