Planning Your Lesson Warm-ups for Effective Learning in Maths

Course Description

In this hands-on workshop, Anita Chin will outline a strategic approach to the selection of content for daily number sense based on your scope and sequence. Participants will learn about the various roles that daily number sense can fulfil, including reviewing prior learning, connecting concepts, practising mathematical language and reinforcing new learning. Anita will also facilitate a discussion of the timing of daily number sense within a lesson and throughout a week of maths learning. Participants will experience several hands-on tasks using a range of strategies that meet the needs of all learners, such as whiteboard insert sheets and open-ended questions.
