I44 - It's Not All About Numbers

Applying mathematical concepts, processes & skills.

Are you looking for some refreshing ideas for teaching Mathematics in general? Searching for additional approaches, strategies and techniques to expose your students to problems much more than to facts, where problem solving is at the heart of your mathematics lessons? We’ll not only ‘sum up’ all the key teaching ideas for you, we’re confident we’ll increase your available resources by ‘multiples’!

This self-paced on-line course is aimed at teachers who would like to explore each of the strands of the Mathematics curriculum in a structured and systematic way including Number, Shape & Space, Measures, Data and Algebra, looking at explanations of key mathematical concepts and processes, main teaching points, along with approaches and methodologies. Mental arithmetic strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division will also be covered.

The on-line format of the course enables you to study when and where you want to learn. Content is divided into 5 modules which you can complete in any order at any time.
 
Participants are encouraged to interact with one another using the communication tools (forum, chat, e-mail) provided by the CPD College learning system. Active facilitation throughout the course provides expert interaction, guidance and feedback for all participants. Assignments and questions which call for critical reflection, self-analysis and a reasoned response punctuate this highly interactive web based course.
 
On completion of this course each participant can download their CPD record and Certificate of completion. The Certificate of completion demonstrates your achievement in completing this professional development course.

Learning outcomes


Through engagement with the course content and through the sharing of successful teaching strategies & approaches within the discussion forum, the knowledge and insights gained by participants will inform the organisation and implementation of their Mathematics scheme of work in the coming year.
