Maths Subject Knowledge Course

On February 23rd we welcomed 18 local teachers to the 4th of our Maths Subject Knowledge sessions - looking at Fractions. We had a full day, looking at the progression from basic knowledge of equal parts and unit fractions right up to division of fractions. The following example really taxed everyone's brains:
1 3/4 divided by 1/2
Reading this as how many 1/2s are there in 1 3/4 is helpful.
Teachers went away with plenty of resources and activities to use in their classrooms. Making connections to other areas of maths, such as arrays for multiplication and division were also made.
All the teachers present asked for a further session to be provided looking at Shape/measure and data handling, so this will be taking place in the Summer term.
