Developing Numerical Reasoning – SOUTH WALES (Cardiff)
Reasoning is fundamental to knowing and doing mathematics and yet it is the area that learners find difficult and the area that is often considered difficult to teach.
This course will provide many practical ideas, activities and resources for developing numerical reasoning effectively. Ideas that can be taken straight back to the classroom.
Course objectivesThe course will answer questions such as:
- What is reasoning? When should I teach it?
- What are the specific skills that learners need? How can I teach these skills? Why are these skills so important to understanding mathematics?
- What do I have to do so that learners can solve problems confidently, tackle non-standard problems, apply their mathematical skills and explain their thinking?
- How does all this fit into the new AoLE for mathematics and numeracy?
