An introduction to using manipulatives and mastering mathematics

The Asian countries, in particular Shanghai and Singapore, have consistently been ranked at the top of the table by the PISA and TIMMS.  The DfE has looked into the approaches used and found that teaching for depth and breadth in mathematics is beneficial for all children. During the day you will look at the current mathematical landscape and why schools are now adopting a mastery approach.  This will be practical day with lots to see and do.  It is suggested that you may wish to bring a smart phone or tablet with camera facility to capture the maths going on.  The day will also give you an insight to the teaching of calculation with understanding, using manipulatives in all year groups.
