Connecting Number Concepts for All Learners K–6

Are you looking for classroom-ready resources to connect concepts across the Number substrands of the maths syllabus?
Course Description

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.
