This presentation / training was created to be utilised with the new curriculum in mind. With a focus on Primary, this resource has been used within staff INSET and teacher training sessions in order to demonstrate the importance of problem solving within mathematics.
The aims of the presentation:
Focusing on to Ofsted - moving from Good to Outstanding.
Understanding the importance of problem solving within a creative, relevant and exciting maths curriculum.
Considering how we, as teachers, show progress within problem solving maths lessons.
There are opportunities for staff involvement in looking at quick problem solving starter activities as well as problem solving pedagogy. There is also a link to an exemplar video (SLIDE 5) showing problem solving in action. Can be used as training resource with teaching staff, governors and/or parents.
This Maths INSET has been used across schools in my region of the country. It is comprehesive with facts, quotes, exercises, activites, information, etc, yet can also be adapted for your school/staff/audience. Good luck with your future Maths INSETs.
