Course Description

Are you looking for classroom-ready resources to connect concepts across the Number substrands of the maths syllabus? This course will empower you with tools and strategies for whole-class differentiated instruction to meet the needs and abilities of all learners.

In this hands-on workshop, Anita Chin will demonstrate how to quickly pull out the main concepts from substrands of the NSW Mathematics K-6 Syllabus. Participants will become the ‘students’ to experience what whole-class differentiated instruction looks, sounds and feels like when connecting concepts across substrands. As participants complete four classroom-ready low-floor, high-ceiling tasks focusing on big ideas in Number, Anita will model how to connect concepts within and across substrands using:

  • concrete materials
  • rich mathematical language
  • visual models
  • written recordings.

Make it, say it, draw it, write it!  Blackline masters and an e-folder of resources provided.

What to bring
  • a hard copy of the NSW Mathematics K-6 Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum (the ‘orange book’)
  • post-it notes
  • yellow highlighter
  • your 6-digit NESA number.


Completing ChinUP K-6: Connecting Number Concepts for All Learners will contribute 2 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 2.5.2 and 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
