​​Whole School Approach online course: Differentiating Number and Algebra

In this online course, the video clips are viewed during monthly hour-long face-to-face team meetings, led by team leaders.

During team meetings educators:

  • Collectively watch the demo lesson videos relevant to their team
  • Discuss the videos with their peers
  • Collaboratively plan how they will implement the strategies in their classrooms  

After each team meeting educators:

  • Implement the strategies in their classroom
  • Reflect on their practice
  • Share their successes both in the online learning community and in the next face-to-face team meeting

The online learning framework give you a structured, interactive opportunity to learn and implement best-practice mathematics pedagogy, and reflect upon and share your learning journey with your peers.
