Making Meaningful Progress in Mathematics and Numeracy
“A successful curriculum, supported by effective teaching and learning enables learners to make meaningful progress” (The Curriculum for Wales: Progression Code para. 2.1)
This course explores effective teaching and learning in mathematics and what it means to make meaningful progress.
In the Mathematics and Numeracy AoLE, progression is based on the development of five interdependent proficiencies – conceptual understanding, communication using symbols, strategic competence, logical reasoning and fluency. This course will explain the 5 proficiencies in simple terms, using practical examples from Progression Steps 1 – 3.
- To explore the importance of the 5 proficiencies and how these underpin the teaching and learning of mathematics and numeracy.
- To discuss and clarify meaningful progression in mathematics. What does it mean? What does it look like?
- To focus on how we teach maths and think about the approaches we use so that our learners become proficient mathematicians.
- To provide practical ideas that can be taken straight back to the classroom.
