ChinUP after-school workshops are hosted by primary schools across NSW and are open to all schools in the local area. These two-hour workshops are for school teams of up to 8 educators, and any school in any sector is welcome. Individuals and casual teachers are also very welcome to attend.

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.


School teams of up to eight from any school:

  • early career teachers
  • experienced teachers
  • Instructional Leaders
  • maths leaders.
