The Programme

With teaching methods that have been tried and tested over the last 30 years, and through the incorporation of key learning theories, such as Piaget, Dienes, Bruner, Skemp and Vygotsky, Singapore has become a “laboratory of maths teaching” which has seen them rise to the top of the international rankings for TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) and PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) for mathematics.

This course is two days which allows time and space for planning and reflection on this revolutionary approach, providing you with the best chance to use this method successfully whilst using Maths – No Problem! textbooks. Our Singaporean expert, Dr Yeap Ban Har, will cover concrete-pictorial-abstract, effective use of questioning to encourage deep mathematical thinking, bar modelling and problem-solving.  At the end of the course you will understand the key learning principles behind the success of Singapore maths and the approach used within the Maths — No Problem! Programme

 

Course impact for teachers

Heads, Deputies, maths leads and senior team members will come away with a full understanding of the principles behind Singapore maths in order to train and support teachers back at school and use Maths – No Problem! resources successfully.

 

Course impact for schools

Your school will benefit from having well trained staff with the in depth skills to support the implementation of a mastery teaching approach across the school.

 

Who should attend?

Recommended for anyone responsible for raising maths teaching standards, regardless of whether your school is using the Maths — No Problem! Materials. For teachers, mathematics subject leaders/department heads and senior leaders (year 1 to year 6). Those teaching early years and year 7 and 8 can benefit from this training, as well.
